God works in mysterious ways. We will never truly know the extent of who He is or what He can do. We know He can do everything, He created us after all. And He has shown many times how much He loves us. I believe that God works through us in many different ways and we need to figure out why we are here. I would like to know what my purpose in life is. Maybe I already found it; maybe I’m supposed to be a wife and a mother and lift my family up.
Mother Theresa said “Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” I feel like sometimes we look for things that are right in front of us, but we do not see them. I once read a book, Acres of Diamonds, about a man and how he sold his farm to go find diamonds. That man never found diamonds and he was so disappointed that he drowned himself. The farmer that purchased the land, found some crystals in a creek and thought they were interesting. A friend of him saw the crystal and told the farmer that it was a diamond. As it turns out, the diamonds the first man was looking for were in his own land all the time. And because he didn’t study how they were in their natural state, he never bothered looking in the creek he own all along.
We need to search within us and ask God for help to determine what it is that we need. We know we want a lot of things but sometimes, the more we have, the less happy we are. We need to pray and ask God what it is that He needs from us. And to ask Him for wisdom and understanding because a lot of times we do what we want, and not what He has called us upon. Remember that “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9).
Maybe we have different purposes with every phase we go through. Maybe God doesn’t want us to do just one thing, but to do different things throughout our life. I mean, being a wife and a mother is a huge responsibility. Our children, will grow up with our teachings and we need to make sure we do it right because what we do now will have an impact in their future. But once they become adults, then they will not need us as much, and so we can focus on other goals.
I’m not sure about this. I have to keep reading and ask God to give me understanding of what I should do. And to ask Him to give me courage to follow through with His plans.
