What Am I Doing?

 I have recently been thinking about what I am doing with my life and wondering about what God has planned for me. I have constant thoughts about what I am doing with my life for Him.  I have always believed that God puts us right where we need to be, but the patience to try and understand "why?" is difficult. This question goes far beyond " I don't know what I want to be when I grow up". This is so much more important to me.
We are here in this place (wherever that may be) for a reason.God doesn't make mistakes. He has my entire life planned out for a reason. This fact astounds me. This fact keeps me going. This fact is humbling.  I often feel like I'm not doing anything significant with my life. I'm continuing my education, I'm working hard, I adore my husband, I am a friend. Do you ever feel like there must be something else that God wants you to see in your life but you feel so blind? Perhaps these are the things God wants me to focus on right now but what if I am missing something?
The other day I was talking with Chance and I said, " We have lived about quarter of the average life. What in the world have we done with that much time? What have I done with my life that is for God?"
I want to live each day for Him and not for my selfish reasons.
This is difficult but something to think about none the less.
