God bless you,
In the past days I took some time to reflect over my life. I discover some things I never stood still and realise that is that much of an importance. There are times you may think you are not seen. Nobody recognise you in your work, in what you do best or gives you smile/hug. You may think you are not doing it right or even begin to wonder what function and purpose you have. Jeremiah 1:5 tells me that their is one God that before He formed you in the belly He knew thee; and He sanctified thee an ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Even when you know this, there are times when you get lost.
Even when you read scriptures like these:
Isaiah 43 1-2 KJV 1 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
John 15:15 KJV 15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
You might heard about these scripture but still when you get yourself in the position to think you are lonely, you are not loved, no one sees you, no one wants to be your friend… You are forgetting about a Father that formed you and knows you. You are forgetting about Jesus whom teach you about God and no longer calls you servant but friend. You know what your focus has changed. You are thinking only about you. Focus on God and you will see a difference and be a difference. You’ll deal with things in a other way than you used to. The Holy Spirit will guide you. So don’t loose your focus and yourself in the process while walking your life path.
You know there is a parable in the scripture about the lost son. Luke 15
The youngest son asked his father for the goods that belong to him. He got it, a few days later he left his house. He went far away where he spent all the goods he received. There was a hunger raising in the land where he was staying. So he went working on a land of one of the habitants. He had to keep the swain. While keeping the swain he ate their food, because of such hunger. Than he realise that the servants of his father that worked for him had in abundance. So he decided to head back home. These are the words of a son and a father:
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
The father throw him a party, he had compassion and was glad he came back home. We loose our focus while going through our journey, but remember: God is grace, He is merciful, He has compassion and He is waiting on you. (this son went from somebody to nobody, to be somebody) Your Heavenly Father loves you no matter what. Even if you decide to abandon Him, He will never leave your sight nor stop looking for you. You are loved, you are a child of God, you are beautiful and you are the best in what you do, because you are you. Don’t shut God out and don’t focus on you, focus on God and you’ll see those feeling of making yourself nobody will change. Because you are somebody. You are worth it.
God bless you,
With loving regards,
