Each one of us is unique and created by God. We hold different titles and different missions in life. Yet, the same mission of sharing God's work and hope in a new day. God's plan begins to unfold and our own decisions makes a huge difference in life.
Ephesians 4:11-16 New International Version (NIV)
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves,and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
SOMETHING NEW ~
My thoughts are powerful and so are yours.
I find that my experiences help someone else. I don't know it all, but I know enough to help someone else turn to hope. Your experiences can help someone else find hope too. It's hard to hold on when hard things hit us. I've learned in life that God is faithful through it all. I've made mistakes and experience consequences from them. I've spent money wrong, I've felt the pain of loosing a loved one, I've felt the pain of loosing material things I really wanted in life and I've heard people say harsh words to me. I have learned to push through and find what God says about me. Through determination of life, I've found Jesus waiting on me to turn my thoughts to him. He is doing a new thing everyday in my life and your life.
I write you with a heart of caring and knowing that God is ready to help you. Turn your thoughts to hope and hold onto because this day can be amazing. We don't know what one day holds, but God does. He connected lives for purpose and I know that somethings in life will never make sense to our brains. A trust in God is important and to lean to him.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
