As I reflect back on this past week in search of solutions to use for the week to come so that we may be proficient, efficient, bearing fruit from our labor while earning a living and making a life; I think of all the people who I had interaction with this week who , even during one of the most challenging times in my life, are my fav nay sayers. One in particular nearly won for a moment, ME. Yep, we are our own worst enemies at times. But, I am here to tell you, YOU can overcome ANY obstacle with the right attitude in place and a whole lotta FAITH in the purpose you believe you have been designed to be.
This little quote by Elizabeth Elliot shows us that we are different.
Sure, I could act like this is a secret; my faith in the Good Lord, that is. Why should I have to be silent about my beliefs, it’s what drives me over the hurdles, through the woods, and on to my purpose in this life. And, its what I was designed, and purposed to do. I was born to use my life experiences, talents, skills, and abilities to reach a world dying in their own sin who need our Lord and Savior.
Thank God, that even though none of us are perfect, He still loves us and wants the best for us and carries out His plan for each of us. Just like a father would instruct, care for, and love his child, so does God love you and me. He knows we make mistakes. But still, He prepares a way for us to be able to follow the path that He created for us before we even were born. In fact, the Good Book tells us that He knew our name before the beginning of time.
2Timothy 1:9 9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
Did you know that He knows all about you even to the number of hairs on your head? Seriously,, take a look
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
While He sees us in the purpose we were born to be, other may see you in a way in which you don’t want them to. Just remember that while they constantly harp on you for following your God Given Destiny; they don’t know the whole story and you know who wrote the Book. That’s also part of the process, you must endure for your own growth.
Look at the Nay sayers as your buffers. They sharpen your sword, they make you want to be better, they help you to step up to the plate while you let something provoke you to greatness.
Check out this weeks Exception To The Rules Song of the WEEK: By: Mandisa: “Born For This (ESTHER)” – Official Lyric Video
“And who knoweth whether thou art come to the
kingdom for such a time as this?” Mordecai
Esther 4:14 (KJV)
How often do people speak about knowing they are doing what they were designed to do? I rarely hear folks speak in such a way that others know, they live a purpose driven life. A life touched by God and called to serve in our ultimate purpose; we were born to worship and commune with God.
We are designed and equipped to reach out to the others by helping and sharing our faith in order to help them connect with God. At the end of the day, that is truly what we all were created to do. And it’s God’s desire that we do it to the best of our ability through Him and for Him. Through our daily life of family, work, and play we cross paths with those whom need the Good Lord; and those are our opportunities to shine in our purpose in life.
Have a blessed week and remember that your litmus test for: stepping into your God Given Purpose: is being able to focus on your path, marching to your drum while avoiding the nay-sayers, as you proclaim your victory.
