We are all ‘called!’

It’s easy to fall off our tracks. We lose sight of what’s essential and move away from our purpose. Whether you’re meant to have a career or be a full-time homemaker, you have a mission here. But it’s easy to feel hopeless. It’s easy to feel like, ‘What am I doing?’ I believe we are all called to do something. We don’t always adhere to it. What I mean is, we each have our unique heavenly purpose. There’s something we’ll do here that’ll make sense when we get to heaven. Some people are unsure of what their ‘purpose’ is, and this can cause feelings of sadness. Sometimes it is just existing and being a friend. Family member. Co-worker, or spouse. God doesn’t get upset with us when we fail, but he does want us to live to our full potential. Ask yourself, am I living out my true potential? Is there something more I could be doing to contribute or to help myself? Our intuition lets us know when something is wrong. When all is right, we may feel happy or peaceful. I feel the most peaceful when I write, so I know it’s what I’m supposed to be doing! What makes you feel the happiest? Whatever it is, it could be part of your purpose. Anything good, anything pure and true, is a gift from above. When it is meant from the Father, there will be no doubt or shadow of turning. It doesn’t mean the path will be easy. But in the end it will be worth it. Either way, God doesn’t love you because of what you do. He loves you because you are you, his child, the one he longs to be with! One day you will realize the importance of his profound existence!

Stop stressin’!

I like to think about things a lot. Often we try to take everything into our own hands and stress when something doesn’t go the way we want. But I believe in destiny. I believe in what’s meant to be. God is in control. Not to say we don’t have a say, but if we trust in him and try to follow his wise instruction—it will turn out alright. Sometimes it isn’t easy to know what he is saying. I recommend spending time in prayer or getting in the silence. Even fifteen minutes a day will make a huge difference. Having faith has so much to do with what we envision. We don’t always realize that. Sometimes we think that having faith only comes through what we hear or learn. But hearing from the Lord also comes from what we see, imagine. It also comes through our intuition; sometimes, we KNOW when he is speaking to us. Those times are excellent. Anything blessed, anything peaceful, anything pure and lovely is a message from above.🌝🌅🌠
