Have you ever wondered why you are here? Have you ever asked the question, what is the significance of my life? I am sure all of us at one time or another have asked these questions in some form. Some of you may be asking these questions right now.
Years ago I remember being so zealous and wanting to do what God had for me. At that time, it seemed like I wasn’t doing enough for God. My girls were still in school. I was working and being the best mom I could be taking care of our little family. But at the same time, I would see so many around me flourishing in other ways.
I was sharing this concern with a dear friend and she told me something I will never forget. It put my heart totally at rest and I pray it does the same for you.
You are walking in God’s plan RIGHT NOW!
Purpose is different for all of us and we all walk through different seasons in our lives. All of our gifts and seasons are different. Those years of raising my kids and taking care of my home was huge in my purpose! I took care of my family as unto the Lord, I cherish those days!
I believe this word today is going to put someone at ease in their heart. Purpose is wherever God has placed you or is taking you. I am a huge believer in living your dreams, but at the same time there is a peace and contentment that comes from Jesus in all seasons.
Wherever you find yourself, please know that if you love God and have a heart to follow him…You ARE doing His plan at this moment! Simply move with the steps in your heart. There are times of stillness and there are times of great movement.
As we learn to live in God’s rest, more directions will come at the right times. We simply live and flow with God and enjoy life! We enjoy the season we are in!
Someone needs to hear this word today. I speak REST in your heart and mind! I speak a contentment and an ease. It is all coming together perfectly and you ARE in God’s plan right now! Yes, you are doing it right now! Doesn’t that bring a calm? It gives God complete space to maneuver your life.
Walking with God is not always being busy. It can also be in the stillness. I believe a better definition of walking with God is be to WILLING. God see’s your willing heart and thankfulness for the season you are in. It is all working together beautifully.
Pray this with me:
“I thank you God for the season I am in. Every moment is valuable and you have a purpose for all of it in my life. Thank you for leading me, my life is in your hands. Thank you for your love. Thank you for shining your light through me in every season. In Jesus Name. Amen”
How have you experienced Gods rest on your journey?
