Over the past few weeks, I have struggled. I have been praying and seeking God about the direction that He wants me to go in.
I have been blessed with talents and abilities. I have been given opportunities and chances to do such wonderful things. Yet it is very important to me that I fulfill my purpose.
A few years ago, I sat down and wrote out my mission statement. However, knowing my mission does not mean that everything will go the way that I think it will go. Over the past few years I have heard God call me to a place where He desires to use me to help others. Now, as I wait in Him to work it all out, I am tested and tried by life.
I have fought battles in my mind. Thoughts that challenge my existence. They challenge my call. They challenge my abilities, talents, and relationships. I have had to listen to the Holy Spirit within me. He says that I am here for a reason; I am called and chosen; My talents, abilities, and relationships are all purposefully blessed.
In this, I find myself thankful. I might not have it all together. Yes, I am walking it out, but there is one thing that I have learned over the past few years.
I have a voice
God has given me a voice. He has blessed me with a strong one too. So, I choose to use my voice for good. I choose to use my voice to encourage you. I use my voice to bring Him glory.
Today, I want to encourage you to do the same thing. If you feel like you have it together, ask yourself if you are using your talents, abilities, and voice to bless others.
If you are like me and you are watching God put it all together, I challenge you to find your voice and use it to bless someone else. Use your struggles and challenges. Allow them to make you strong. Not just strong enough to recover from the battles that you have fought. Let them make you strong enough to strengthen, encourage, and motivate someone else.
I hope you find this helpful.
As you watch God, use your voice…
