Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Hi WR2W, this month of October has definitely brought the unexpected into my life. At the beginning of the year, I was on “cloud nine” and several months later I started realizing the unexpected was about to happen. I was not in denial; I was in a state of not ready. Something I thought was finally about to happen made a turn for the worst before my very eyes and although I tried my best to send warning and fix it the best way I knew how, destiny spoke, and a purposeful decision had to be made. WR2W, sometimes we are forced by destiny to make decisions that will affect the trajectory of our life but what we must remember is that when we are in relationship with God, He will make all things clear and grant us the peace and strength we need to move pass the decision. Will the spirits of frustration and disappointment arise as a result of the unexpected? Absolutely, but we must look beyond our wants, ask God to reveal our needs, and expect the best is yet to come.
WR2W, although I was forced by destiny to make a hard but necessary decision, I was not ready to make, I trust God and I know that this decision is already working together for my good. Therefore, I am looking forward to the new door God is opening in my life because I strongly believe when God closes a door, He has already opened another. As I walk through the open door, I will carry purpose, fearlessness, and confidence with me over the threshold knowing without a shadow of doubt that God has positioned me for the promise. WR2W, never avoid making hard decisions and settling for less than what you are worth because someone else is not ready to go where you know God is taking you or to make someone else comfortable when God is saying it is time to stretch pass your comfort zone. Time is to be cherished and not to be wasted so make every decision and move with purpose and on purpose. I love each of you, be blessed, be encouraged, and be true!
Let Us Pray…….
Father God, in the name of Jesus, we come before You with hearts of uncertainty due to the unexpected, but through it all we still trust You. God help us to see as You see and accept what we did not expect, but You deemed purposeful to happen as well as to make hard but necessary decisions when we are not ready. God, we cast every care upon You and although we may not understand Your reason for making the decisions You have in our lives for our good, we trust Your plan for our destiny over what we thought was best for us. Forgive us for thinking we know best and rid us of any frustration and disappointment that we may have developed as a result of the process. God, in the name of Jesus, give us the strength to weather the process and allow Your Joy to be our strength. We love You and fully trust You with our heart, service, and destiny even in unexpected times. Have Your way Father as we stay out of Your way and follow Your lead. Lord, order our every step and continue to guide us into righteousness, in Jesus mighty and matchless name we pray, Amen!
