What's your purpose?

My grandmother used to say that there is a season and a purpose for everything. I get it now. To understand the importance of walking in one's purpose is a huge challenge. It involves you being uncomfortable for a little while and understanding why you are here on Earth.

Each of us has a purpose. There is reason and purpose for our lives. We are all spiritually connected and the sooner we figure that out, the better.

I've been in the midst of a storm for at least a year now. Just recently, I've gained the clarity that I've been praying for. I now see that God had to lead me through some things to prepare me for what was in store. I also had to see my way to understanding my purpose.

I'm a dreamer and I sometimes miss the point that is right in front of me. I'm also a planner and I tend to plan things to the point where I may miss taking the first steps when God wants me to. So now I'm at the point where He has dropped it all right in my lap, and the light bulb has finally come on. My husband pointed out to me that I was struggling with some of the ideas that I had because they were not aligned in my purpose. Things finally got to the point where God had to give me a wake up call by leading me by my hand to the place where I needed to be, only for me to recognize that I had used my talents before in the same way because it's what I'm good at.

Your challenge:

What is it that you do that people always ask you to do? Recognize your talents and use them regularly. When we use our talents, we are a blessing to others and we walk in our divine purpose.

Peace and Blessings

All in due time

I'm a worrier by nature. I'm always worried about how things will turn out. The reality is that some things are in your control and some things are not. As much as I know that, I still worry. I'm always trying to fix things and maybe some of the worry comes from the control freak in me that wants things to turn out the way I envision them.

This week I had a life lesson that God is burning the midnight oil and working things out, By the morning, there was no need for me to worry because He was moving and working while I should have been calm and asleep. Things do work out and they work out in divine order.

Remember all in due time. Remember that when it seems that you are applying for jobs and it you are not getting calls back or landing the job after the interview. God is preparing you. All you can see is that you did not get the job, but maybe that job was not for you because you are not ready or there is something else in store for you.

Remember all in due time. Remember that when it seems that your journey to finding the right man or woman seems to wind up in dead end relationships. God wants you to learn from these relationships because he is molding and shaping you for the person that He is sending for you.

Remember all in due time. Remember that when it seems that everyone around you is acheiving their goals and they seem to be where they want to be in their careers and in their personal lives. God has carved out a road ahead made just for you. And yes that road has bumps along the way, but we need those bumps and bruises to remind us to not look back and focus on what's ahead.

Remember all in due time. What God has for you is for you and no one else. Stop looking over at what the next person has. That person has walked their own path to get to where they are. You will get to your destination all in due time.

Peace and Blessings,
