Often times people wonder how I can go through life so sure that the things I pursue will work out. Well, I am not a psychic and I can’t predict the future but my relationship with God ensures that I will not fail because He cannot.
How can I believe so strongly in someone I haven’t seen? That’s an easy question, because I’ve experienced Him for myself! Some people may live their lives purely off of their own decisions which can be filled with error. Some people may only go by the things, they can see and touch right in front of them and that’s okay. I have chosen to believe God’s word, His promises and allow Him to lead and guide me in my life.
Why you may be wondering? Well, that’s another easy one. Once I was just like some people living my own way, by my own terms and making my own plans. I chose to begin running an endless race chasing money and success. It was always my goal to make sure I never had to ask anyone for anything, in my mind I was gonna do everything by myself. After about 3 years of working good jobs and knowing deep down I wasn’t doing what I was passionate about but making money I burned out! Mentally, physically, and emotionally I could not do it any more! Even when my body exhibited signs that it was tired and needed rest, my brain was thinking “you have to do this, nobody else is going to help you or take care of you.”
The next event following these thoughts and me refusing to listen to my body, I experienced my grandfather whom of course I was very close with passing away. This happened on top of me being totally burned out, so what did I do? I tried to keep going, not really dealing with what was going on, suppressing my emotions, then I literally passed out at my desk at work. Seriously, I had to be taken away by an ambulance and taken to the hospital. This is when I knew I had to make a change!
The Summer of 2014 I went searching for answers of why, and what to do now? God answered me, changed my heart and gave me the direction to go in. I listened and rededicated my life to Him, to live the life He has planned for me with His help! He has done everything He said He would do in my life! He has increased me astronomically! So I’m always sure that His way is better than mine, even when things seem as if they aren’t going my way I am comforted because I’m on His plan! The things He has instructed me to do, the places He has told me to go and the ideas for my talents He has placed in my heart has only increased my life! I’m so grateful to God that He’s Never Failed Me Yet! He’s never said something that He didn’t do! I know He loves me because He has shown me what His love is and what He does for me daily proves that!
So I am sold out! People want to know how do I do what I’m doing? How am I sure things will work out in my favor? It’s because of my relationship with God! If you are still searching for your purpose in life, things are a bit unsteady and you are not sure which direction to go in. I encourage you to try Him for yourself! Do this with complete surrender, not half way! He will change your life and lead and guide you where you are supposed to be! I’m speaking from experience! Living by faith is just as difficult as not living by faith except it’s the best way to live! Let’s remember I’ve tried living my way. I’d rather live with God helping me than without! My relationship with Him gives me favor in places I wouldn’t have had on my own and causes everything I set my hands to do to prosper! You don’t get those benefits without God! I have 2 degrees, and I’m working on my 3rd certification but what God has taught me is more than any book or course can teach me! I know I need Him! What about you?
I pray that everyone reading this post finds their way to living the Divine life! You only have one life to live, why not make it your best life!?!
Happy Friday! ❤️
