FOR HIS GOOD GLORY
I find myself becoming frustrated when the purpose I have deemed I have does not line up with His purpose. Why would He lavish gifts and talents upon me and not use them in a grand fashion? Is His purpose for me within the confines of the small circle of world that I touch? Does He not desire for me to minister to the down trodden, the hungry, the sick, the disenfranchised in far corners of this world? Telling Him, "Here I Am" and waiting for His Perfect Will to unfold can be frustrating---for me--- How quickly I forget my creation was for His Good Pleasure and He has a perfect plan for me. An intricate pattern was formulated before I took my first breath. The tapestry of my life path when gazing upon one day can appear dull and sometimes pointless----BUT pull back--way back and look at the entire tapestry--the beauty becomes evident when looking from above at the complete woven pattern.
"And that is what the world is looking for--NOT for you to be amazing, but for you to shine God's glory."
NO NEED FOR AMAZEMENT---only a need for obedience and then---
HIS GOOD GLORY
will be woven into the day to day living according to His Good Purpose.
Many plans are in a man's mind,
but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand.
