Introduction

What Do You Want to Be When You "Grow Up"?

What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a question we heard a lot as children, and it's a question we continue to ask ourselves even as adults. Our young adult years certainly are a time of "becoming" -- choosing a career, getting the education or skills we need, finding a job, discovering our place in life, making our way in the world, and perhaps getting married and starting a family. And all these experiences, many of which involve life-changing crossroads, are extremely important. The challenge is to walk with God day by day so that we may become all that God wants us to be.

This book is intended to help you do just that. As you make your way through the year (whether you start in January or June), encountering a different writer or writing team each month, you will find practical and spiritual insights, encouragement, and a sense of camaraderie for the challenge of walking with God day by day. Though the writers have diverse backgrounds and personalities, there is a common theme among them: God is with us. It may seem obvious, yet we're so prone to forget it.

In all the changes and the challenges, in both the mundane and the mysterious, in every moment of every day, God is with us. No matter where we've been, where we are, or where we may be headed, God never deserts us. Though we may try to hide from God or "go it alone," we can't escape God's love. God loves us from the cradle to the grave. And when we accept this love, we discover life abundant.

It's so easy to get caught up in striving to become something: educated, employed, financially secure, physically fit, outstanding in our field, well-liked -- the list goes on and on. But, as the writer of Ecclesiastes says, all of these things "are meaningless, a chasing after the wind" (1:14 NIV). There's really only one pursuit worthy of our full attention, our complete focus. A successful career woman and mother expressed it so well. She said that it has taken her a long time to decide what she wants to "be" when she "grows up," but she thinks she has finally figured it out: She wants to be completely God's. That's really what life's all about it, isn't it?

Young adulthood is a time of change and challenge, a time of seeking and searching, a time of exploration and discovery, a time of establishing deep and long-lasting roots and relationships -- in other words, a time of tremendous opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. It is a time to walk with God and to "become."

The question is still a good one: What do you want to be when you "grow up"? -- Sally D. Sharpe, Editor
