What am I going to do with the rest of my life???? This is the ultimate question that every high school senior and most college students, (if we were honest) ask themselves. I have never liked this question! In fact, my senior year of high school, I HATED it! I was always asked in church too, so I couldn't lie! (; If I had a penny for every time someone asked me, I would pay off student loans in a week!
So..to all of my sisters out there...trying to figure out what your going to do with the rest of your life.
If you don't know, it's OKAY! There are a gazillion other people JUST like you, it's just that no one likes to talk about it. Instead of trying to figure out God's will for the rest of your life, start enjoying each day of abundant life He has given you. "God's will is not necessarily a 55 year plan. God's will is that you obey Him and love Him every day."- Pastor Aaron Duvall. So, girl...get that home work done. Work on your to do list- In Jesus name! Be the hands and feet of Jesus to someone today.
2. Remember who's daughter you are!
Galatians 3:26- For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Ladies, your father is the One True God! He designed the universe in 6 days. I think he can take care of you. A true father guides and protects. That is just what our father does for us. Knowing that you are a child of God puts you in a pretty awesome place. Because we were made by Him and For Him,(Col. 1:16) we don't have to stress out about our ultimate purpose and goal in life. You were made FOR HIM. That simply means that He created you to serve Him. So let's do that! Contrary to what our #SelfieSociety believes, your life is not about what you can gain. Your life is all about what you can GIVE. First, serve God. Secondly, serve others. Use the gifts and passions God has placed in your heart to fulfill your purpose of a lifetime of service.
3. If not us, who? If not now, when?
CONFESSION....I am a horrible procrastinator. (And I forget a lot of things...but that's beside the point!) So many times, I think.."Ehhh...I'll do it later." Have you done this before? The truth is, there is NO better time to start enjoying each day, living out your True Purpose than TODAY! Start right now! After reading this article, I would like to challenge you to seek Godly counsel and get on your knees and pray. Prayer is the single most powerful weapon against the enemy. It is also a direct line to the our maker! So, take time today to thank God for abundant life. Start dreaming big and praying in steps. When I started asking God to show me the next step I was supposed to take, it became more obvious when He would reveal it! Don't allow Satan to lie to you, and tell you that you are some type of disappointment! He is trying to steal your peace and your joy. Go ahead and claim victory in Jesus' name!
You've got this girl, 'cause God's got you!
Much Love, <3 Fayth
