Accepting the Unacceptable

 


There are many things in life that are beyond our control. Sometimes these things seem to interrupt the vision God has given us for our lives. However, this is because our human vision is limited. We can't see things through God's eyes so we feel like we aren't equipped to fulfill our calling.

My Testimony

A while ago I shared the vision God gave me with you. Since then my health has gotten bad again. The doctors think it's MS but I'm not sure what it is. All I know is that sometimes I can't feel parts of my body, walk, or stand for very long. Yet, God has given me a vision of what He wants to do with my life. 

Lately I've been questioning how it's going to be possible for me to do these things. I've been wondering how I'll ever be able to fulfill the purpose God has for me. Yet, I'm reminded of the words, "Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey."

I need to stand strong and let God work through me. Right now all He's asking me to do is to go to school and study. Sure, He's shown me what to study but who am I to rush forward and try to fulfill His plan for my life on my own? 

It's hard for me to think like this. I want to question everything and know every answer. Sure, I trust God but sometimes my life doesn't show it. Sometimes I'm impatient. While that's a part of my human nature, I need God to fix this so that I can just "trust and obey." Eventually God is going to put me in the perfect position to serve Him.

Why am I sharing this with you?

The truth is that we need to accept what seems unacceptable from our limited viewpoint. We need to understand that God's vision for our lives is bigger than we could ever imagine. He has great plans for us if we're willing to accept what seems unacceptable.

Until next time, Stay strong,
