God's will does not include Breakfast.

"God's will for your life is not very complicated. Obviously, living a Christlike life is hard work, and what following Jesus entails is not clear in every situation. But as an overarching principle, the will of God for your life is pretty straightforward:
Be holy like Jesus, by the power of the Spirit, for the glory of God." -Kevin DeYoung

It's easy to use the excuse that we are "just waiting to figure out the will of God," when really we are just not doing anything. God's will is not some mystical magical thing that we have to spend all this time trying to figure out. His will does not include if we should have a bagel for breakfast or an egg. His will doesn't tell us if we should start school this year, or wait until the following year. It is not a planned out treasure map that leads us to the treasure. He knows every decision we are going to make, but God gives us the freedom to make them. We should do everything prayerfully and wisely, but we should not waste time saying "I am trying to figure out God's will for my life,"
We are simply called to do something...anything... but in everything we are to strive to be like Jesus and do it all for the glory of God.That is truly is His will for us.

Thank you Kevin DeYoung for writing "Just Do Something," this book has convicted me and taught me, through Biblical examples, what God's will is for every Christian.
