God Gives

God ALWAYS has a purpose for you, me, and everyone around us. He gives us our purpose even if we cannot see it at all times.

Sometimes I feel as though I might be missing out on His purpose for my life. I start to think that since I am not doing more at this time, I think that I am not doing enough. This is not true.

The real truth is, God has me right where He wants me. When the time is right, more will come, but until then I am what He wants me to be. So are you! His plan is not always understood by us at every single moment of our lives but it is still the right plan for us.

God even gives us the right people during our journey. At times I hear something that may sound hurtful or degrading but it is the message itself that pushes me to do better the next time. If I always heard positive things that weren’t true I may simply become stagnant thinking that I am the best I can be and I do not need to readjust a thing.

The people in our lives are what help shape us. God knows what and who we need so at times he sends someone with motivation, a wake-up call, comfort, other times we get to converse with someone wise, and then there are times when we get a friendly reminder that everything is going to be okay.

I pray that this message of hope finds you all well.

I also hope that you all have an amazing week.

    I never thought about God using someone who hurt me to make me the person I was meant to be. If that is true, then I can even be thankful for the hard things in life. Thanks for giving me something to ponder. Blessings, Christy!

    A great post Christy! Recently I was think about how we always pray asking God for so many things, but rarely do we (or at least I) ask God what I can do for him. I have decided to start including that in my prayers.

      Thank you so much Len. Yes it is important to see them as what they are… Godโ€™s helpers. If we donโ€™t then we may disregard their messages and then we wind up where we started. God bless you and your family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—

      You are really kind with your words. Thank you for your encouragement and read.

      I hope that others see people in their lives as โ€œmeant to beโ€ and โ€œhelpfulโ€ in our quest to get closer to what God wants for our lives. He doesnโ€™t always send His messages and guidance to us in a kind manner, although He does most of the time, rather sometimes He sends it โ€œbitter-sweetlyโ€ and it is up to us to have the faith in Him that what is being said is for our benefit. Blessings be with you now and always. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—
