There is purpose in all circumstances. It can be illusive though. Each person has a purpose for their life as well. Sometimes finding what that is takes a long time. There are time though that it is laid at your doorstep.
Sometimes we must be still and listen. In the quiet we will learn the plans that are laid out for us. Other times the plans are like a billboard or flashing lights, saying “This is your plan! Follow it!”. Most of us prefer the billboard; I know I do. There are still times we do not know the plans God has for us or how he will use our circumstances towards that plan.
We may not currently know the purpose of my husbands pain, but rest assured there is one. We believe it & take comfort in that fact. The verse below is the verse I have adopted for the past few weeks as “my verse”. God has a plan for me, a purpose!
We may or may not ever know the purpose of my husbands pain/illness and we accept that. It may help someone else much further away in either distance or time. Maybe hearing our story, our struggles and how we live day to day life with these issues will help or encourage someone else. We trust God in the journey though!
I’ve been reminded in so many ways over the past two weeks that I have a purpose. I walked in the store & the display was my verse! It was a perfect reminder!
We all need reminders. I ask my kids to remind me of things constantly. Our minds get so busy with day to day life that we need help remembering what we need to do, get at the store, send to school or to pick our kids up (that last one may or not be an exaggeration). Reminders that God has a plan for me have been abundant! That I am to be grateful for the journey is clear to me!
Be grateful and appreciative in all circumstances and for everything.
Do you know your purpose? Are you grateful? How has your journey been? Have you been reminded of the plans God has for you?
