"I was brutish and ignorant; I was like a beast towards you. Nevertheless, I am continually with you, you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory.
Hey everyone! Today we have our last guest post of this week from a friend of mine, Leo. What he says is so true, and I pray that God would continue to speak to you through this, and that you would continue to understand how big and vast and wide His love is for you! God bless you all, and I hope you stick around for the next week, where I'll be doing a seven day series on the devil and his traps, called Strong Not Strongest. And don't be afraid to comment and let us know what you thought of the first seven guest posts :) Have a blessed weekend!
How amazing is God? I know it’s a common question in our atmosphere, but just sit there and really think about it. How amazing is He! Think about how complex our world is, our understanding of it, and how it came to be. God created all of it! I mean he created our ENTIRE lives before we were ever conceived or before our parents even thought about having a child! That is absolutely so convoluted (which means extremely complex and difficult to follow) to me about why God made us….and why He allows us to have problems.
I’ve always questioned why God -our great father- allowed us to go through such laborious and burdensome challenges. My parents divorced when I was young and i lived most of my life...as two. Two different and separate lives, and it took a toll on me emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I always questioned God’s love for me and why He even gave me the gift of life.
Then, after many years of pain, struggle, thinking, learning, and self-discovernment to realize something: 1) God loves us unconditionally! He absolutely loves us more than anything in the world and He will never stop providing with this grand love of His. & 2) God made people like me to ask questions that others may not want to think of. He made me for a specific role to go into people’s lives and question where they are spiritually.
Just as he made me for a specific role, a specific purpose, He made you for a reason. Each and every one of us were made to do something fantastic! We could all do our part and improve the lives of others. Don’t believe that you’re worthless, but believe in God and his reasoning for your existence. You must simply pray to become aware of your purpose and once you learn what that is- use it!
