Today, I was reminiscing about my past life and I remember questioning God. Yes, “I questioned Him.” Actually, I’m sure many of us have questioned him about things that have happened in our lives. At the time, I didn’t understand the “why.” “Why didn’t I graduate from college in 4 years?” Why didn’t I have a boyfriend or why didn’t I get job or how did they overlook me when I more qualified?” The “why” wasn’t clear then but it definitely clearer now.
I’m glad that I didn’t get that boyfriend, job or finish college back then, because I might have taken all of the credit for it. I believe God orchestrated the events in my life to mature and strengthen me for my purpose. I know we all have a purpose in life because God said we were created to praise Him, and if we are praising our own accomplishments though our own strength then He is not glorified and we become vain.
So, because life didn’t happen how I expected to it happened, it happened the way God destined it to happen for me. He diverted my direction from a mess to a message. My husband was placed in my path, and I give Him the glory. “Want He do it, yes He will.” I became an educator. He set up a platform so that I could reach and teach those who needed what He placed in me. “To God be the glory. ” As a result of teaching, I’ve ministered to hundreds of students. Many of those students still call me, ask for my advice and call me momma. “All the Glory is to God.” Through His wisdom and word I’ve been able to give many of those students wise counsel.
And as far as the job or career, I’m still believing in my ultimate goal; writing my book. He has done it for others, and I know He doesn’t have a favorite person. I’m patient and I’m writing a this moment. I truly believe my life is lived for others to see that God is here for us all. You should believe that too. Don’t give up on Him. He will and can do the impossible because he’s not man, but He does it in His time and His way.
