To you, this might just seem like a few paragraphs strung together to form some idea of what’s going inside my mind in this very moment as I sit at my desk and type away. Truthfully, on the surface, that’s all this really is! But I will tell you this: I am absolutely not just sitting here and typing words I think you might like to hear. It’s much deeper than that, I can assure you. I hope to prove that to all of you who take a second to read my blog.
Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. I could obviously start with a brief description of myself, but let’s be real, who actually wants to read that?? I could also give you a brief overview on my intentions for this blog in the grand scheme of it all but again, in reality, who the heck cares and who knows?! People, don’t let me fool you. I have not the slightest idea of what I’m even doing on this webpage! All I am certain of is this, God planted this in my spirit and I couldn’t ignore the call or what eventually turned into a desire! So let’s do this. Here we go.
I want to talk to two people.
To those of you who are believers and followers of Christ, Do you realise that God has a plan for your life? I mean, truly, do you understand that when He says He has ordered your very steps, HE really means that! He orders every single step we take! How amazing is our God! Knowing that God has a specific plan for each and everyone of us is so encouraging to me. When I actually think about the grace of God to give each of us our own uniqueness, it floors me. I am overwhelmed with joy at the thought of it. Not only does He have a plan for us and order our steps, but He goes even further and gives us the abilities to do exactly what He has called us to do. God grants us with gifts and talents that make us even more unique! I challenge you to look inward and see yourself the way your Creator sees you. Not just as a human being but as a vessel. God desires you to follow your dreams and listen to your heart because He is the One who implanted those dreams within you. They are all apart of God’s great plan and purpose for your life.
To those of you who aren’t believers yet, I have some wonderful news for you, as well! God has a plan for your life, too! He is only waiting for you to step into in! I encourage you today to take ahold of Jesus and accept Him as your Lord, King and Saviour. I can promise you, from experience, this will be a day you will never forget and it will indeed change your life forever. You will step into God’s divine and unique purpose for your life. The gifts and talents that He gave you without you even knowing will become part of that plan and I should warn you because BRACE yourself! God will use those gifts in ways that you couldn’t have done before. The Bible says that God’s ways are higher than our ways. One of my favourite songs says, “if God is in it, there is no limit!” How true that is. There are no boundaries, limits or any ways to box God in, so know that when you make yourself available to Him, there’s no telling what He can and will do. I can assure you, it will be unlike anything you’ve seen, heard or felt before. God’s purpose for your life is specific to your life!
In Psalm 37:4&5 it reads, “delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.”
The thing is this: God wants you to be successful! He sent Jesus for many reasons, the main one to save the entire human race! But the Bible also says that Jesus came to bring abundant life and peace. So, in everything you do, let it be done for the Lord God and rest assured, you will have that abundant life you were promised.
So yeah, maybe I don’t know what I’m blogging for but I do know that this is the step God has established and ordered for me right now. I’m all for following in the steps of my Maker!
Remember, that only you can do what God has called YOU to do. That’s why He made YOU! The Bible says that you are beautifully and wonderfully made. You were created exactly how God wanted you to be made and you were made perfect when Jesus nailed your sins and struggles to the cross.
It is my prayer that those of you who are reading this today will truly seek the Lord and ask Him to reveal to you His plan and purpose for you. If you are struggling with your calling or even not knowing exactly what that calling is, feel free to contact me. I would love to lift you up in prayer and help you in anyway that I can.
I love each and everyone of you! May God BLESS and KEEP you!
