In my heart, I desire to handle all matters wisely. I want to be a light to others that shines directly to my Lord. When all is said and done, loving and serving God is really all that matters. So often we get burdened down by the troubles of the world. It can seem overwhelming at times. We don’t always know what to do. When we go to the Lord for our guidance, however, He will always lead us the right way.
God didn’t just put us in this world and tell us to do the best that we can. He is with us. God has all the answers. He always knows which direction we should go. When we seek His guidance, then we will be able to discover our purpose and live according to His plan for our lives.
We don’t have to figure it all out. God has already figured it all out for us. In order to know His purpose and plan for us, we just need to spend time with Him. The more we question and try to understand, the more He will talk to us. Once we discover His purpose and plan, then we just need to be obedient and follow Him. So ofter we think that we have to do great things, but in my experience with the Lord, it is really small things repeated daily.
When we decide to follow after Him, even when we don’t understand the direction, then He will bless us. Sometimes it takes time. It took me seven years to get my books published. In those seven years, I didn’t profit financially at all from my writing. It was hard to believe in a dream that seemed so far away, but I did it anyway. During my journey, God knew when I was getting discouraged and He always encouraged me. Then one day, in such a simple way, He turned it all around for me. I had two books published at the same time. If we do the work, He will reward our efforts in His time—and it will be greater than we dreamed it could be.
Don’t be discouraged in well doing. God sees your efforts. He knows your heart. Find out what He wants you to do. Then, do it with all your heart.
Love and blessings,
