WHY NOT YOU
By faith and
with love for you my sister, I am challenging you to believe right now that
today is the first day of the best days of your life. You must believe that God made you who you
are, to do what He created you to do like only YOU can do it. The trauma, the struggle, the tragedies, the
pain, the misery, the disappointments were and are all a part of God’s plan to
shift you into the next stage of purpose.
Yes, even your troubles are purpose driven. Often when we are going through these things,
we ask “Why me?” However, I am asking you, “Why not you?”
The reality is
that when we walk in God’s purpose for our lives, we walk in God’s power for our
life! The good news is, when you
discover your purpose you will discover your passion ~ immediately ~ no matter
your age, status, or level of education.
The struggles in
your life are not to punish you but to process you for your purpose! Crisis causes us
to surrender. We often hesitate to agree
with God quickly because we anticipate that the process will be a lengthy
one. However, I’m a witness that God
makes everything beautiful in its own time. He is able to redeem time,
reconcile time, and in some cases reverse time to achieve His purpose in our
lives. Where you are is NOT where you
are going to be in the end. You must
know and understand that every encounter in your life is God’s intention for
your life. God is working out His
purpose in us and quite often, that “working out” is not pleasant. However, you must know that if God leads you
to it ~ He’ll lead you through it. Do
you know that your purpose waited for you to be born and that no one else can
fulfill it the way you can?
This is the season of new
beginnings, new relationships, new opportunities, new vision, a new YOU! Still you may be asking, “Why me?” Again I say, “Why not you?” because purpose looks good on you!
