Throughout life, we find ourselves wondering about things. Why did this or that happen in life? I didn't want it this way, but it is what it is.
Things that happen that just changes our lives forever.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die
I DID NOT WANT IT THIS WAY ~
I was talking someone about life and death. We know we were born on a certain day and the date we will enter Heaven is unknown now to us. A life created by God and in-between the beginning and end, is a purpose. A purpose to be who God has called us to be.
Genesis 9:13-15 New International Version (NIV)
13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
SIGNS FROM GOD ~
A rainbow appears in the clouds
Just like God made the promise not to flood the earth, he knows what is best for each of us. You might say that life wasn't suppose to happen this way or was it? I have said I wouldn't change anything in my life up to this point. Each moment has taught me things and I've grown from situations of life. Maybe if I changed something, I wouldn't be who I am today. I've gone through much sorrow, but much joy in life. I said yes to God and he uses my fingers to write you. Daily I learn, I grow and I make better decisions as life moves forward. It doesn't mean that I don't battle my own thoughts. It's important not to stop believing and knowing that God is with you.
What has made you stop and say, "I did not want it this way?" A moment that took your breath away and a new normal would begin. That moment would forever change your life. Each time I look at a rainbow, I see the power of God. Things change us into a better or bitter person. The moment isn't always about a death of someone, but a change that changes you.
You were born for a reason and for this time of life. You can and will make a difference in lives around you. You can become stronger than yesterdays of life. Each choice, each moment and each tick of a clock, can bring us closer to God if we allow it.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Keep looking up and see the rainbow of promises by God. It's a new day and you are important.
