Lots of thinking has been going on in my head lately y’all. The past few weeks I have been super afraid of so many things… mainly the future. These worries burden me so much that I have been very emotional like basically all of the time… I know I’m a teenage girl but STILL. Haha anyways back to what I wanna talk about!
I have no clue what I am supposed to do with my future. Zero. My parents don’t know, my teachers don’t, not even my friends! Society tells us that we go to college, get decent grades, and then have a substantial job that can support your spouse, children, and maybe ( if you’re lucky ) the occasional trip to Disney World. Society says we need to have a big house, buy nice things, and have the right friends or job.
Most Christians in some way or another base all of their values off of society and raise their kids in a way which ensures this idea of ” success ” However, this is what SOCIETY says. Society is the World. So as followers of Christ, why are we following an idea that the world places before us?
I’m not saying that those things are bad or that the lifestyle American culture places fouth is sinful. I’m just saying that it doesn’t have to be for everyone. You don’t have to go to college or have the nicest car in the neighborhood. God gives us what we need, and He is our provider.
If God is calling you somewhere that seems out of your comfort zone, you need to follow it. He will call some of us to be missionaries, accountants, or teachers. Sometimes where he calls you is not where you think you want to be. Sometimes it forces you to give up things or people that you want to hold onto so tightly. BUT you have to trust in His plan, a plan that is so big we can’t even comprehend it.
His plan is elaborate, and it isn’t always easy. It might break you in half. It might leave you questioning God and what in the world He is doing, but someday we will know. He knows where you are meant to be. Follow Him wholeheartedly and He will reveal this wonderful path to you.
Being a Christian is for sure one of the hardest things to do. Believing in a being that you can’t even see is tough, especially when it tells you to do something you don’t want to do. I get it. I’ve been there. I’m there now. But God has a way of revealing Himself to us.
Last night I was really discouraged, and I got a message on Twitter from a random account that I’ve never heard of. The message said this:
” As I was going through my account the Lord directed me to speak to you to have faith in anything you are doing because he is about to do greater things in your life. Beloved, are you ready to step into the greatness that the Lord has set aside for you?”
This message had me SHOOK y’all. What a coincidence. What a thought to soak on. The very thing I have been fearing and the very thing I can’t stop thinking about has been brought to me by God. God is here, God is alive. What a wonderful message and question for me to pray about. Are YOU ready for the big plans God has set aside for you? I hope and pray that God will reveal himself in your lives in a BIG way this week! – Cami
