Why do you do what you do? What is your purpose or goal for doing it?
One of my good friends asked me these questions when I told her I have been feeling stuck lately. As some of you may or may not know I moved back to LA almost a month ago, after being home for 7 months. Before my return, I was so motivated and had so many goals set for myself. I don’t know if it was the effects of Mercury retrograde but I have had little to no motivation at all since being back. Lately, I have been sidetracked by constantly thinking about my age and where I’m “supposed” to be in life. I found myself constantly asking God, “what am I doing wrong? What am I lacking…” I then had to stop and check myself REAL QUICK… GOD does not make any mistakes, and where I am in life is exactly where he wants me to be. He blessed me with the opportunity to move back to LA to really go after my dreams, this time under better circumstances than before. How selfish of me to not open my eyes to that! I watched a clip of Lauren London (side note: She’s sooooo beautiful) the other day where she discussed meeting God halfway. It then clicked that I was not doing my part in meeting God halfway. I pray about my future and dreams all the time. But am I really meeting him halfway? Am I doing all I can with the opportunities He has given me? He did his part in getting me back to the city of endless opportunities. I just have to gain the confidence to go after them…
So, to whoever is reading this… are you doing your part in meeting God halfway? If you then stop worrying! Yeah, you may not be where you thought you would be but you are where God wants you to be. Everything happens on His timing and a not a minute sooner. Now, for the other half of you, are you really meeting God halfway? Like, really doing your part? Honestly! Now, I know I can’t preach to y’all about being content with where you are in life when I’m not even content with my own place in life, however, I am taking steps day by day to remind myself that if God wanted me to be there I would be. Just because I am not there yet doesn’t mean I won’t get there. So, I end this post with this thought: ALWAYS have confidence in where you are in life. Even if things are going bad, trust and believe they will work out for the good in the end. God makes no mistakes. I know some things may not make sense to you right now but eventually, it will. & And most importantly if you are not meeting God halfway…. get it together!! We all have to check ourselves sometimes, so if you feel the need to check yourself do so! and Most importantly always remember GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
