Do you ever wonder what purpose God has for your life? I do. Life can be busy, it can be chaotic, and life can be hard. Want to know something? I wouldn’t change one thing about my life. God always shows up (maybe not when I feel like he should) in His timing. Psalm 27:14- Wait for the Lord; be strong, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
My husband and I are high-school sweethearts. We’ve been together since we were 15 and it seriously feels like yesterday that he showed up on my doorstep after school to ask me to be his girlfriend (I know it’s totally cliche and you’re rolling your eyes probably). My husband is an Engineer, a true geek at heart (I say that lovingly and I usually refer to him as my “Hot Nerd”). Always consistant in all his ways, honest to a fault, and most importantly loves the Lord more than anything or anyone in this world. Matthew 6:33- But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
We have 3 crazy, loud, and super fabulous kids. Our life is very much hectic and fast for the most part. Between the both of us working full time, our kids attending a private christian school, and attending church everytime there’s a service (to the best of our ability) we are usually breaking up toddler fights or dodging nerf gun bullets (my kids are great aims).
You see, as I get older I become more and more comfortable with who I am. Who I am becomes clearer to me, and my insecurities become quieter, almost faint at times. The last 2 years I’ve had this burning desire to be used of God, to be found obedient and useful. To have a purpose. I realize that I have kids that need me, a husband that loves me, a great job with patient’s that depend on me (I’m a Physical Therapist Assistant). All these things are necessary and filled with purpose. I’m much more interested and on a pursuit for God’s purpose for me.
Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself. -Martin Luther King Jr.
Psalm 40:8- I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is] within my heart.
