by Keeli Parkey

In a recent social media post, “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson looked back on what life has brought her in recent years. She especially focused in on what has happened to her since she appeared on the popular ABC reality series, “Dancing with the Stars.”

Sadie shared her thoughts on Instagram on Wednesday, Oct. 20. She opened this latest social media post by asking her fans and followers “two questions.” Also, these are questions she wanted them to ask themselves “right now.”

“What are you doing, and why are you doing it?” the “Duck Dynasty” star opened her social media post on Wednesday.

Next, the 24-year-old recounted her time on “Dancing with the Stars” and how her appearance on the reality television show made her feel.

“Years ago I was 17 years old, a junior in high school and had just gotten off of a little show called ‘Dancing With The Stars’. I honesty (sic) had no idea what I wanted to do with my life,” the “Duck Dynasty” star also shared.

Next, Sadie Robertson shares how what she experienced thanks to her fame from the show did not – at first, at least – fit in with her devout Christian faith.

“I loved Jesus, and somehow found myself in this wild position, but I didn’t fully see how the two of them went hand in hand. … thought I had to choose. I either do ministry or continue chasing more of a celebrity lifestyle through being a TV personality and the entertainment world,” Sadie also shared.

It was at this point in her life, that the “Duck Dynasty” star said she asked herself important questions. These questions were the same she posed to her fans and followers at the beginning of her recent Instagram post. One of those questions was “What am I doing?” The other focused on why she was doing what she was doing.

Sadie Robertson said it was when she began asking the God of her faith those questions that her life began to change. Doing so gave her a different perspective on the important questions she was wrestling with.

“Better yet, I asked God those questions. What are you doing through me and why? I then realized that the two things i loved went hand in hand. My platform that I had been given and the things I was gifted and passionate in went with my purpose in life – to love God and to love people,” the “Duck Dynasty” star also shared.

Sadie Robertson then encouraged others to have a change in perspective in their lives. She encouraged them to see how their jobs can also be a key part of their Christian ministry.

“You don’t have to choose your job over ministry… your job is your ministry. You also don’t have to wait for THE job to start living out THE purpose,” she shared.

Sadie Robertson also quoted a few Bible verses in her post. These were Psalm 37:23-24; Proverbs 20:24; and Proverbs 19:21.
