Blessings, we all love them, right? We all want them.
Now, this is in no way saying that I know all things about how God moves, but I do know that He wants the best for us and sometimes the best means doing the unpopular things.
Now, to keep it real this process can and sometimes will suck. Bad. It will literally have you questioning if you made the right decision and regardless of what a lot of believers say about how amazing it is to be a follower of Christ, it doesn't always feel that way. Some days you will think you are alone, when in reality God has you in quiet times for a reason. Other moments, he will have you submerged in spaces because He knows your desire for community and the want to be wanted.
Just know, he's using you for His glory. Go with it.
But on the real tip, it isn't as glam as some Instagram captions make it seem and it is not always praise worthy when you take time to be vulnerable about your process. No matter the starting point, the end result always guides you to where you were destined to be. Yes, I believe that destiny is a thing for our lives (even if you don't) because of the way that God has shaped things up for us.
Honestly fam, we are often called to a purpose, like our favorite word Romans 8:28 says, "all things work together for the good of those who love Him, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Okay, so to be honest, I often forget about the latter point of that verse and tbh I realized how detrimental that was to my overall growth. This is what lead me to write about the benefit of the blessing and how we often seek it but rarely honor what God calls us to do.
And to be even more honest, I don't always adhere to what he asks me to do the first, second or third time.
Sometimes, the fourth too.
Yeah, I don't always listen lol.
The second half of that verse is way too important to glance over friends.
Way. Too. Important.
When someone calls you, you generally answer right? Like, if someone calls you for an opportunity that sounds like the call of a lifetime, you'd pick up or call back right? Zero hesitation, I'm sure. What if we used that available certainty to answer God's call in, through and by faith?
Our lives would be drastically different.
