It is so easy to fall victim to the doubts and fears that we are not enough. It can drag us down. We become so consumed with not having enough, not being enough, not doing enough…and our focus shifts onto that instead of where it needs to be, which is on God and what He wants us to be and what we are called to do. Satan just wants to keep us distracted and he does a really good job of this. All he has to do is put the question of enough in your mind. And if you are like me, you just take it and run with it.
I began this journey with God some time ago. Along this path there have been many twists and turns. However, through it all I knew without a doubt that God was right by my side. This isn’t to say that I haven’t struggled from time to time and even wondered whether I was headed in the right direction. I mean did the Lord really understand it was me He was dealing with? Of course, He did. My dreams seemed so small compared to what He had in mind. How often we try and limit our lives simply because we do not dream big enough. I will tell you today, without a doubt, God has big plans for each and every one of us. We simply need to yield to His plan and follow His leading. This does not mean that it will necessarily be the time frame or direction we had in mind, but God has promised that it will be good.
I started my blog over a year ago with lots of nudging from friends and loved ones. I didn’t really even believe people would want to take the time to read it. Who cared what I had to say? But then I realized that the Enemy was trying to keep me sitting on the sidelines stricken with fears and insecurities. This is not the way God intended it, so I decided to pack up and follow Him. I wrote about things that were heavy on my heart and mind. I soon found others could relate to these same themes and ideas. It then hit me; God had bigger things in mind than this blog.
I’m certain that all of us would go out of our way to avoid a head-on collision. Then, why do we continue on our collision course with God? We choose to go our own way instead of His. If we do not make changes, then our will is going to collide with God’s will. In order to avoid this we need to identify the three principles for staying in God’s will.
As we are drawing this study to a close, we are looking at how to leave a lasting legacy. Today, I would like you to think of your life as building a bridge for the next generation. Anyone who has ever done any construction knows that the building materials are key. Are you constructing your bridge out of temporary or eternal materials? There are three key eternal materials that we need to utilize in the construction of our bridges.
