My Purpose

Have you ever wondered why you are put here on earth, what the real purpose of your life is? I have asked these questions and more from my Heavenly Father and as I sit here I share with you some of my insights about my life.

You know through the year we are always to think of others not just at the Holiday times but all the time, I haven't been as good at that as I should but I'm going to try.

I was born into this world 55 yrs ago and I am still here by the Grace of God. Many of my family members have passed away or just left for no reason. Life as I have known it hasn't been the greatest but it was life. One day I gave my life away, actually I gave it back to Jesus and said, "thank you for giving me life and now I give it back to you so you can mold me into the person you want me to be, I will follow you no matter what the cost, no matter what is in store, even unto death, just use me for your Glory", I picked up my cross and never turned back.

As I sit here typing I am crying but tears of joy for the Lord has kept me safe, I might live by my myself but I am never alone, my Heavenly Father is always besides me. I asked Him to use me in anyway He chooses and to guide me on the path.

I have been through many trials, many surgeries, many hardships but still I am here strong in the Lord my faith does not waver. I can not go to church right now but that is okay because I have Jesus in my heart and He knows what is going on with me.

God is good all the time - He allows me to go places that others can not go for He knows I can do it. He uses me to witness to others in hospitals, clinics and to the Drs. One can not do that unless they are put there to do so. We are all called according to His purpose.

God is the ultimate healer and it is always in His time not ours. Sometimes we can get healed instantly, or over time, sometimes it is in our death that we are healed - but no matter how we are healed it is always within God's time table, He is never late.

I close with this: When God closes a door He opens a window so the Blessings can continue to flow. He never closes something before opening something else first.

I was Blessed this year by needing to sell my car - a recent surgery that saved my life also gave me the freedom to live. The selling of my car helped me to be debt free for the first time in my life. I used all the money to pay all my bills. We don't need material things in life to live, we just need to live according to His plans for us. I have given my all to Him and He keeps giving me Blessings on top of Blessings. I am financially okay right now and yet no matter how much I give to others He returns it 10 fold.

My life might be on a rough road right now, but I am thankful to my God I am still working for Him. I am here to be an encourager to others - no matter what I go through I know He gives me the Grace and Strength to keep going. I have one life to live and I chose to live it for Him. It doesn't matter how rough the road because one day my road will lead straight to Him. So if you think it is to hard for you to keep going please call on Jesus and He will carry you just as He does for me.

With Jesus' Love, may you also receive Blessings from above Debbie.

What a beautiful post, Deb. You are such a strong person, and it is definitely because of your never failing belief in the Lord. No wonder with all you are going through, you seem to deal with it so well. Your faith is so strong! I continue to pray for healing for you. I hope that you have a very blessed Christmas, and Happy and Healthy New Year! (((HUGS)))
