Hello, I pray this letter finds you in great spirits.
Sometimes people climb different mountains in their lives. At this age in our lives, we start questioning ourselves. Have I done all that I can do? Have I fulfilled my purpose here on earth? And then our journey gets tough and we start wondering. Where do I begin?
We begin to soul search within ourselves. We grow up as individuals. We become independent, putting away childish things and dreams only seeking God’s will and totally focusing on him for guidance and direction. Seeking God’s approval and mercy and grace is the only thing in life that really matters.
Our everlasting life should be our first thought every day. Keeping our eyes off of others and focusing on God’s love will comfort us in our time of need. It is time to surrender all and let go and let God. Find out who you really are in the Lord.Be a vessel, a chosen vessel of the Lord. God loves you and has a plan for you. Seek Him and you shall find. Knock and the door will open. Surrender and praise Him through the storm and you will be blessed.
Have faith and stand on God’s word. You don’t belong to yourself anyway, you belong to your Heavenly Father in Heaven. So get your eyes off the storm and look above the clouds. Keep your eyes on God. Stand firm and trust in Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior. Then everything will be alright.
Brothers and sisters, I believe God is calling you out. He has other plans for you in your life. It’s time to take that step, stop fighting that losing battle. Your purpose needs to be fulfilled. If you will seek Him with your whole heart, He will reveal your calling and I promise what ever it is, you’ll be the best.
