Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Saturday to you all! Well…we have now made it through another week…and I praise God; that no matter what I face from day to day…that He ALWAYS has control and is more than able to see me through the difficult times of life…praise Him!!
This morning, as I’ve been sitting here…starring out my office window; God began to lead me to a song, titled…“Write Your Story”…and this song was mainly talking on how God writes His story for our lives upon each of our hearts.
As I listened to the song several times, I began to look back on my own life…and as I looked back to several specific moments in my life, I could see how God truly had written His story for my life upon my heart, from the day I was created.
Some of you may not know this; but I had originally planned to be a nurse to the mission field…at least this was what I thought God wanted for me. As I attempted to prepare myself, for each step of the way…doors began to slam in my face…and why…because these moments hadn’t been written in the story; that God had written for my life.
Little did I know…that instead of being a nurse to the mission field…I would be a nurse to the brokenhearted, through a ministry that God had personally blessed me with. Even though my plans failed…His plans prevailed…and ever since that time in my life; He has been there, to help me live out every moment; that was written on the pages of my heart.
In Jeremiah 29:11, we read… “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Some of us may be scratching our heads right about now, as we read this verse…for it says that the Lord has plans to prosper us and not to harm us; but yet why do we still suffer through moments of affliction?
One thing I feel very strong about; is that when we are created in our mother’s womb…God touches us with a purpose and plan; that is completely designed by Him. In other words…it’s the story that He has written for us to live out…through the life that He has given us. When we choose to twist the story around and make it of our own choosing; there can be times, when we truly miss out on His blessings and suffer needlessly…which I have truly come to see within my own life.
Now from there you may ask…then why haven’t I been healed? I have done everything God has asked of me; but yet, I continue to suffer. Believe me when I say…I know where you are coming from…because there have been many times, when I have questioned God, as to why I wasn’t healed; but through time, I came to see that these moments of affliction…within my own life, were written within the story of my life. Even though this was part of God’s plan for my life…a plan that would bring me down to His level; so I could write from the brokenness within my own life; He continues to sustain me and walk me through these times…and why…because He’s always is in control, of each part of the story…plus…I have chosen to live out the story…no matter what the words convey to me.
It’s not always easy to understand God…and the things that He allows within our lives; but when we are willing to just live out the story, of what He has truly purposed for us; that is when we will come to see that every word written upon the heart, will continue to walk us out of the difficult times we face. Remember one thing…never try to change parts of the story; that God has planned for your life…for when you go on your own…thinking that another way will fix your problem; you will only come to see that your life ends up, as a story that has no end….a story that only repeats itself, with no real meaning.
Well…I don’t know about you; but these words today, have truly…truly touched my heart…and have become a reminder to me; that I should always remain in sync with the story teller of my life…Amen!!
I truly hope and pray that your Saturday will be a very special one…completely blessed by God! Take care and I will hope to see you soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
