In a week and a half I turn 26. eek. I’ve officially lived a forth of my life.
To be completely honest with you guys- I am no where close to living the life I thought I would be right now. Not even a year ago did I think I would be where God has me in this season. It is the first time in my life I have not had a solid exact plan on what is next. After high school I knew I was going to go to continue my education somehow- after college I know I was going to get a corporate job because it just fell into place- after I quit my job I know I was going to be a missionary for a year and once I go back home well… ha I have no idea what God has planned for me next. It is bittersweet. It is not what I had planned, but all that really matters is that I have Jesus in my life and I am living day by day all for God’s glory! I know He already has and is going to continue to use me in advancing his Kingdom!! A sweet dear friend of mine from jail gave me this one day and I thought it was too good of a reminder not to share…
This could not be more true. God is the only one who knows our hearts and futures. He is beyond powerful in this. He has authority over everything- the power to raise the dead, the power of tornadoes, the power of repairing our hearts, the power to completely destroy and rebuild Haiti and yet we acknowledge His power, but we have a tendency to not TRUST HIM with our own lives. or at least I know I do.
So today I declare that “God made me ME and put me right where He wants me to be- all I have to do is turn from my ways and rely on Him.” So join me in prayer for G42. for this city. for this nation and for the Kingdom of God.
“For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to STRENGTHEN those whose hearts are fully committed to him…” [ 2 Chronicles 16:9 ]
