The problem is, figuring out what that vocation is supposed to be. If God wants me married, I wish He'd clearly communicate as much.
He does, I think, communicate clearly quietly to us. But, we have so much noise in the channel, so to speak, it's hard to hear over the clamor of our own thoughts.
Consider this (and this is my own opinion based on my own experiences in the world), you ARE where God wants you NOW. If you are suffering, or confused, or anxious, it's because, in your heart of hearts, you are trying to bend God's will to match yours. He will NOT be denied if you believe in Him.
Try it the other way for a change:
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own:
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace.
That is enough for me.
Amazing how things can change when you truly put it in HIS hands.
