Good morning, I sure enjoyed my day off yesterday! Having a three day weekend is always a gift! I had a rough weekend, although relaxing, I had time to reflect a lot. I know I usually don’t get heavy on my blog, but I am about to, because today I feel the urge to write about it. Maybe it will bless somebody else!
Do you ever struggle with your purpose in life? Do you ask yourself, what am I doing, where am I going and how is God going to use me? If you haven’t, that might be a bad thing, but it might be good too, who knows! I know for me I feel like a lost sheep at times. I know one of my problems is that I “think” too much! I ask too many questions and I have a hard time stepping out in faith. I feel like I step out in faith a lot, but I am only kidding myself, because I know I hold back. The unknown is scary! But then sometimes I think if we knew everything that would be just as scary. God created this beautiful place called earth and He desires for us to live out everyday glorifying Him and His kingdom, but yet so many of us hold back. We don’t realize our full potential! I know for me, it is easy to speak life and purpose into other peoples lives, because I fully believe God has great great plans in store for His children. But I know I fail miserably, at times, believing in the purpose God has for me. I am reminded that without faith and patience I will not inherit the promises God has for me. Impatience is a sign of pride, and the only answer to pride is humility! In 1 Peter 5:6 we are told to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He will exalt us! So the key is patience! Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. Wow, I need to repeat that sentence multiple times when I get up in the morning! I hope this message is as encouraging to those reading as it is for me to write. I don’t mean to get all heavy on you, but I know it is a new year and so many of us question who we are and where we are going. I encourage you (and myself) to seek the plans God has for you and stop letting yourself get in the way. God loves you and me so much and He has great plans in store for us! Have a happy Tuesday!
