Despair and helplessness have been two of the things I’ve been noticing the most in people lately.
Maybe it’s related to circumstances, like businesses not making it, and opportunities being stripped from us.
Maybe it’s watching those around us struggle so much and knowing we can’t fix it.
Or maybe, it’s our own beliefs that we cannot accomplish what our hearts have been nudging us towards.
Regardless, it’s easy to fall into the belief that what we wanted isn’t coming.
And we might be right.
But we also might not be.
Here’s what I know:
God has a good plan for your life.
There will be hardship and trials that you face as you walk in this plan.
Some so big that they will feel like everything has shattered around you.
Some so heartbreaking that you won’t believe there is a way through.
But God has a plan for you that included even the worst parts of your life.
He knew they’d happen, and He uses them accordingly.
Did God want you to go through all the bad? I honestly don’t think so. I don’t think He finds enjoyment in our suffering.. at all.
But He uses it to change our trajectory and our hearts.
Friend, you need to remember that God has called you out.
You are chosen.
There is some mission and purpose on your life that no one else can have.
When God called you to it, He didn’t say “keep walking until it gets hard, then stop because I don’t know what to do from there.”
In fact the Bible says, “He who created a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
What does this mean?
It means He’s NOT done with you!
As long as you have a heartbeat and breath in your lungs, your plan is still unfolding.
There is still more.
But you are going to need Him to keep going.
The idea that there is no purpose for you is a lie straight from hell.
Don’t even entertain that crap.
God doesn’t make people who aren’t intentional and who aren’t apart of His plan.
You have so much purpose.
You have something the world needs.
He isn’t even close to being done with you.
