It’s time for another blog!
This time, I wanna talk about truly following God’s will for our lives!
For about three months, I have been praying so hard that God will work in my life in a way that glorifies Him, not me. I prayed long and hard for His will to be done, no matter how much it hurt me. I knew that He had a greater plan and a greater purpose for me.
However, following God’s path isn’t always a walk in the park. Sometimes, God is gonna take you through a rainstorm just to get to some shelter. You just have to look UP. Don’t focus on worldly things. Who cares about what other people think about you? Push aside your human emotions and desires to focus on the one whom your soul LOVES.
Sometimes, living the life God made for you isn’t always easy, and just because it is the life you are living, doesn’t mean that it’s about you. Our lives are not about us at all. Our lives are made to share the gospel and the love of Jesus to everyone we can.
This month, I’ve been trying so hard to humble myself. To follow his path and give myself up to glorify Him. It has not been easy, and it’s never going to be easy. But when we someday enter the gates of Heaven, it will be so worth it to look into Jesus’s eyes and see Him smiling back at us.
Submitting to the Lord for me is creating a father- daughter relationship. It’s about finding the calm to your storm and throwing your hands up in the air asking God what in the world he wants you to do.
God IS working in my life. The closer I’ve begun to follow him, the more trials I have gone through. Let me tell y’all, life has been ROUGH. But my God has brought me some wonderful people and some wonderful things that really have helped me through this life so far! Even though things have been hard, I wouldn’t want them any other way. I’ll follow whatever God wants me to do!
Another thing I wanna talk about is our sins. For such a long time, I was held back by my sins. Sometimes, I still am. But we serve a God who has a boundless mercy and forgives us no matter what we did. Don’t let your sin keep you from growing in your faith, instead, repent and use it to become stronger. Don’t give up on your God or your faith. Don’t let other people tell you that you aren’t good enough to follow Him or share His word.
Sometimes, it is hard to see, but God brings hurt into our lives and breaks things that we think are so good and fun. He breaks them apart so he can open us to new opportunities in our lives, into things so great that we can’t even comprehend. When God does this, we don’t always know WHY. But we can rest in the fact that God’s plan is ALWAYS good. God has shown me this when I decided to go to my school only half day! I was just having a really rough year overall, and I decided I couldn’t do full day anymore. So, since I only went half day, I found some volunteer work that I can do in a much needed place! God used ME to fill a spot that people have been praying to be filled! I’m so thankful that I can help out in a place that needed it!
I know this blog was a little scattered ( as usual ) but I just wanted to encourage some of you tonight! Have an awesome week! 🤗
