The path to your purpose won't always look like the promise you know God's given you. Most times the path is filled with pain, disappointment, heartbreak, betrayal, loneliness, doubt, and a lack of confidence. Sometimes it's taking jobs, leaving jobs, staying where you don't want to stay, or leaving where you may already be comfortable. It's easy to question God--why would He allow such things to happen, is He even there? But if we can learn to recognize God's hand over our lives, we will begin to look at the troubling times and say "Thank You, Lord" because we know He's only preparing us for that next big move. Believing in His promises when everything and everyone is telling you not to is the surest way to come out of those storms. And each time you survive, you're moving closer to realization of those promises and Don't run from the change God is trying to do IN you while He's moving you to the next step. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing/has done to you and asking God to fix them. Focus on what He's trying to show YOU and trust that He will keep every one of His promises. You are His child whom he loves, cherishes, protects, and CORRECTS! If he never has to check you, you may want to check that relationship. God's love is big, and He wants you to live a life big enough to receive all of it! Spread your wings and fly! Because even if you fall, God's hands are there to hold you, and that's the safest place to be!
