What do I do?

Hello people, I'm 21 currently studying to be a minister via internet. Because I am visually impared, and not exactly rich...meh...I spend a lot of time at home.

Sometimes I get worried about my future and how things will work out. I've tried to persue other careers, but the door always shuts. I attended a community college for a year and my instructor told me that while I have a talent in the field, it would be hard for me to suceed because of my disability and lack of passion for the field. I really wasn't interrested in what I was doing...

Truth is, the only thing I'm interrested in is ministry (well that and video games) Thats really all I know. Sometimes I feel like I'm always going to be doing what I'm doing now...not progressing. I'm looking for a job to make some money and save and all that good stuff. Any advice or encouragement?

Yeah that's funny you should say that because that's one thing that I have been praying for is supportive friends and a mentor to learn from. Not to sound like a crybaby, but I never really knew my own father
 
Best of luck Duddy316. Perhaps you could turn your ministering ability into a job? What opportunties are there in this area?

Could you start your own web site. Not sure if you can make a great deal of money from this, considering the vast amounts of other free sites available.

The personal fulfillment is payment enough though.

Perhaps you could write books, or e-books and sell them online?

Just ideas, hopefully they might help.:)

Dear Duddy,

May God be with you!

Are you going to church? Are you active in your church? I would start there. As with any career, showing that you have some experience is vital. Begin by volunteering, then maybe work at becoming a youth minister or faith formation director - something that will give you experience and allow you to grow in your field and get known.

God bless you!
