Maybe you are working at a particular job that you never dreamed you would be at and you're not to happy with it.
Maybe you are raising your grandchildren and 5 years ago you would have never thought to see yourself in this position.
Maybe you have worked your whole life to build a retirement and in the midst of that retirement you find yourself loaded down with health issues.
Our list could go on and on and while only God truly knows the answers to our questions I think it would be safe to say; That our Lord is using our current situation to complete His purpose through us.
I didn't say that we necessarily like the situation nor that we understand the situation. Just simply that our Lord is using our situation to bring Himself glory and He finds that it is Good for us! (whatever the IT is)
Here is the thing that I have learned and I am still learning...I don't think we will EVER quit learning do you?
God's calling on our lives as Christians means that He has simply chose us for the task!
Can I ask a question? WHY NOT US?
Can I be honest with you and say that there has been times I have said, "Lord, really! Why me and why now?
But...what makes me think that I am any different or better than anyone else to serve in the tasks that the Lord has placed me in?
Here is the thing; The Lord doesn't need us to complete His purposes, yet He chooses to ask us to partner with Him! READ THAT AGAIN!
HE CHOOSES US! WOW! The calling at this time of our life whatever that may be is because above anyone else...HE CHOSE ME and HE CHOSE YOU!
When I think that my Lord, the God that saved me by His grace and extended His mercy upon me SINGLED ME OUT and Pinpointed ME for a particular project that He wants me to team up with Him on...... IT BRINGS THINGS INTO A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE!
Thank Him...Praise Him....Worship Him....
He has our back! He loves us more than we can even begin to fathom with an everlasting love. No matter what our IT may be He chose us for such a time as this!
