At the beginning of my life, God had a plan and a purpose, even when I didn’t see it. God is no respecter of person. He also has a plan and a purpose for your life. When earthly life tries to determine your destiny and your identity by bringing you confusion and turmoil that leaves you wanting to give up on life, God has a way of visiting you with His gentle touch and true love.
Look at your trials as a learning experience, not a curse. That’s how God builds us up and prepares us for what’s to come. It will also bring us to a place of obedience. For me, it’s not how I fought to the end of my battles, it was how I handled my battles with God’s wisdom and a positive attitude. As I look back at what had not made sense at the time, I can see where God has taken me, and now it all makes sense.
I was raised in a non-Christian home. If you had the same upbringing, it doesn’t mean that God loves you any less. It just means that God loves us and accepts us the way we are. Let God make the changes in our lives.
