~Trusting God When You Don't Understand~

“In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

How many times are we tempted to ask God “why”? When things just don’t make sense or go the way that we planned for them to go, that is when we must trust God the most. For example, Joseph experienced many opportunities where he could have easily asked, “why God” or “why me”; instead of asking God “why”, Joseph simply believed God. The situations that he was placed in –like the time when he was sold into slavery right after having a very promising dream- didn’t always make sense or seem fair. Did Joseph quit? No. He pushed past doubt and unbelief and he waited on God's deliverance.

Have You Opened Your Gift From God?

Created With a Purpose?

What is our purpose as a woman? Why are we here? It’s amazing how simple questions can result in complex thoughts.

 Have you ever taken notice of others who seem to “just know” their purpose? Sometimes witnessing others pursue their “calling” can be encouraging but also discouraging when flustered with trying to discover our own reason for being. Maybe you feel that you don’t have a talent or just have one talent.

Well I’m here to tell you that there is more to you than the obvious and it’s time to actively display your gifts. We were never given gifts for ourselves but so that we can enhance the lives of others; in turn our lives become better because we reap what we sow. No matter what you’ve experienced in life, YOU HAVE A PURPOSE!

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
