The Shaping Of A Life

And we, who with unveiled  faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 

Good afternoon everyone, thank you for joining me (dee's thoughts). I love hearing from you thank you for your responses. Have you ever wondered why we were born, "Why Am I Here" and is there a purpose for me being here and if so what is that purpose? Well I think that is a question that we have all asked at one time or another. We all want our life to have meaning, to make a difference in some way.?? This is also God's plan for us as well.     

 Before I knew Christ in a personal way, life to me was “just living”. I never did think too far ahead about tomorrow, nor was I very concerned about death and what happens after death. Most of us could probably identify with this.

 But now, now that I have come to know Him in a personal way, my thinking has changed over the years regarding my life and the purpose God has had for it. Now I realize that “The shaping of my life” has been totally designed  by God , a perfect plan just for me that cannot fail because God has put it into existence and motion. Oh, I can get off of that path and do my own thing sometimes, but God always finds a way to get us back on track. At one time, i did not think about God having a plan for my life, now, I know He does and i don't want to get off on my path but stay on His.

  Oh, there have been  bumps along the way and there  will probably be more,  but  I don’t have to be worried about them because those bumps will not deter me from reaching the ultimate goal and purpose of my life,  because my life is “not my own” it belongs to God.    

This life of mine is not really my life, it is on loan to me from God who put my life into existence because he wanted it to be. I could not make it happen, I did not have any say in it what- so- ever. Isn't it interesting that we very quickly try and take control of things we have no control of at all. One of those things is 'US'.  None of us are here by accident, it was ordained by God that we are here and it is His wonderful plan to fulfill all that He has for us in this life and the life to come with Him forever.

I take great comfort in knowing that I don't have to have all the answers, that my life does have purpose and is ordained by God. a perfect plan just for me and for you tailor made just for each one of us personally. To know that God has it all laid out for us and desires for us to be a part of that plan that includes  

 As I look back I can see clearly God’s hand in everything, the good, the bad, the happy and the sad. All these things have been part of a bigger picture and plan to bring me to a place of peace, contentment and trust in the One who loves me and you. There is a divine plan in place for us that we cannot see clearly now  but we will one day.

 So, if you have days where you wonder why you are here and what purpose there is in life, know this, God has a plan, a plan for you that is being unveiled every day. For  I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 .

Take comfort in this...we don't live this life just unto ourselves, our life is part of a bigger picture. We have purpose and value in God and His plan for you and me is designed, hand tailored for each one of us in a unique way by our loving God. 

 You are Special and Loved

Blessings, Dee
