Our oldest is learning a lot about trusting and waiting on God. Amidst the waiting though He is speaking some amazing lessons to her.
Recently, she was looking at some friends lives that are living out
what she we would want for her own life, yet they got it younger than she is now. She was feeling a little sorry for herself when God whispered, “That is not your story.” She felt peace knowing God has a story just for her.
Shortly thereafter, Sammy was thinking of some other ladies she knows that are ten, fifteen years older than her and still do not have what she wants for her life. Fear started to grip her when again God whispered, “That is not your story.”
There were no promises made to her about what her story is, just that she has a unique story with God and He already has it written for her. This blind waiting is still not easy, but it is surrounded with mounting excitement to see what God’s plan is.
God has made each of us for this time. We can know this because He is the giver of life. He knit us together in our mother’s womb. It has taken every generation since Adam and Eve to line up to make you at just the right time. There is no mistake in you being here at this time.
As confidently as we can know we were created for this time, we can know we were created for a purpose. We must beware of trying to live someone else’s story; that will only lead to disappointment. God has a plan He wants to fulfill through each of us. We just need to focus on staying near to the author of our story, so He can guide us.
