What should I do with my life?

Q: How do I know what to do with my life?

A:  When you find yourself confused about what to do with your life, the best thing to do is to take your concern to God in prayer. Learn to sit in quiet prayer, and then receptive silence, so that you are better able to hear that "still, small voice" of God speaking from within you.

Here are some inspiring Urantia Book quotes that may help you as well. Clicking on the links will expand each idea in context:

Loyal persons are growing persons, and growth is an impressive and inspiring reality. Live loyally today--grow--and tomorrow will attend to itself. The quickest way for a tadpole to become a frog is to live loyally each moment as a tadpole. (100:1.4)

"Never forget there is only one adventure which is more satisfying and thrilling than the attempt to discover the will of the living God, and that is the supreme experience of honestly trying to do that divine will. And fail not to remember that the will of God can be done in any earthly occupation. Some callings are not holy and others secular. All things are sacred in the lives of those who are spirit led; that is, subordinated to truth, ennobled by love, dominated by mercy, and restrained by fairness--justice." (Jesus) (155:6.12)

The weak indulge in resolutions, but the strong act. Life is but a day's work--do it well. The act is ours; the consequences God's. (48:7.13)
