The challenges of life can often take us away from two very important things: our identity and calling. Over the last few years, the Lord has been highlighting writing as an area for me to pursue. It has been a joy and a challenge at the same time. How much time do I devote to it? Is it reasonable to invest in it? Am I wasting my time? Am I doing enough? Will anything ever become of this? Perhaps you struggle with similar things in different areas of your life.
I must confess these thoughts have been swirling in my mind recently. As I write, I think I realize at least partially why these thoughts have been coming up recently. My schedule has been off. I evacuated Virginia for Hurricane Florence. And you know what? I totally got my eyes off of God! I was focused so much on the hurricane and just felt off with being out of town.
So, I’m writing this entry as an encouragement for you out there to reconnect with Your God, you identity, and your calling. When You remember who God is and who HE says you are, everything gets back in place.
We seek Him first and things come into place. Each and every time. I don’t mean to say this process happens overnight; yet, I have seen God do this very thing time and time again in both large and small scale ways. When I have gone back to Him as my first love, healing happens. Alignment happens. Focus happens. Good things come my way. I am better able to manage whatever trial I am facing.
So, as I write to the writer in me and to others struggling today to find their way back to their identity and calling- know who you are. Know who has called you. And rest secure that He has called you and will secure your path. You don’t need to know how it all ends. But HE does. So take heart, you who feel insecure or uncertain today. You’re doing just fine.
Marie, Secure in Christ’s love 🙂
