Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
A GREAT FUTURE ~
I like that T.D. Jakes said, "I would hate to die and not do what I was born to do".
Psalm 139:11-15 New International Version (NIV
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
A GREAT FUTURE ~
Take another look at verse 13 above. God knitted you together in your mother's womb. If you have a hobby of knitting, you will know it takes time to make the item. It's a long process and the item comes out to be used for a purpose. Just like God has a plan for each of our lives and knitted us as individuals. When I read what T.D. Jakes said about missing our purpose, it sent a spark inside of me. It made me question, what is it my divine purpose on earth? What is your divine purpose on earth? Most of all, will we answer that purpose?
I find myself making excuses in life. The reasons why I can not do something, rather than the reasons I can do this. I want to encourage you today to overcome that voice that tells you that you can not fulfill your purpose on earth. I don't know what your deep down desires is, but God does. He has given you courage to do it, wisdom, strength, and all good things. Face your today with your desires coming to life. Pray for the right timing of maybe your desires. Work toward that purpose and if you don't really know your purpose, it is do to the will of God. Saying yes to God opens your mind to his plan. His plan doesn't happen over night but begins a journey of life. Just like me, I didn't know I could write a blog daily and here I am. I look forward to writing you every morning and praying for you. That's only one of my purpose in life and many more.
Take a few minutes today and look at your life. Ask yourself is it balances out with prayer, praise and pressing forward. Thinking over things you can not change is a waste of time. It brings us down when we wonder why's of life. It brings hope when we turn to God and realize his timing is perfect. Starting a new day with a thankful heart and praise of seeing it. Keep hope alive and keep looking up because that helps a lot. God's plan is confirmed for us, as he knitted each of our lives in our mothers wombs. You are important and greater is in this life that God has made.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. God's plan is larger than we might realize for each of us. It's time to seek God with all our heart, mind and soul. Allowing God freedom to mold us and have the courage to step into our purpose on earth.
