SUMMITTING YOUR OWN MOUNTAIN
Patience— you never know what the view is like from the top until you get there, and you get there by having to climb & finish the distance first. You don’t just show up there. It takes time and hard work but it is so worth it.
Things you are doing now are bringing you to where I want you [to higher places] even the little things that you think are worthless.
Keep pushing forward.
Soon you will be at the top and see how all this time and ‘steps’ you have accomplished have helped you get where you need to be— to live YOUR purpose.
You can’t skip the work nor distance.
There is always a journey and adventure to get anywhere. Stay patient. I love you and I your Father, have amazing plans for you.
Enjoy the process,
Do you ever wonder what your purpose in life is?
I sure have and sometimes I even get worried thinking I am wasting away my days, ‘not doing my purpose’. It was a couple weeks ago now, at a youth meeting where God spoke to me through the letter above. It instantly gave me peace, knowing that things I was doing/working on were bringing me to my purpose in life. “The Lord will work out his plans for my life — for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.” [Psalm 138:8].
We all have choices to make in life, and we can chose to either live a life led by the Holy Spirit, or to make selfish decisions and just do what we want to do. The decisions we make DO MATTER, yes even the little ones, and not only at a personal level, but at a global and universal level.
Lately, I have been really seeking out what my purpose in life is, and that is why I have decided to read “The Purpose Driven Life — What on Earth Am I Here For?” By Rick Warren. This book was strongly recommended to me by a friend alllll summer long… ahaha [*cough* Aleksis]… So I finally decided to pick it up from Chapters the other day. I invite you to join me in reading this book! It is a 40 day book that I believe will be life changing!
“You didn’t create yourself, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for!” (Rick Warren, p. 22).
