>Abunant blessings found in His Will

>As a follower of Jesus, the ultimate goal is to be in the center of God’s will for you. At that point, you are serving with all that you have, using your gifts wisely, and seeing the bountiful blessings that pour forth. For the first time in a long time, I am see the blessings of being in the center of God’s will.
This is not to say that I was ever out of God’s reach or scope, simply that each step I take right now is to his glory. Each decision that Kyle and I make as a married couple is blessed by God for our persistence in seeking his will and what he desires for our lives. I know that I have written about this a lot lately but as I see my life abound with blessings and I look at some of those that I love who are choosing to turn away from where God is calling, I can not help but feel the urgency of speaking these thoughts.
For the past several years, I believe that I was walking on the line between what the world was telling me and what God was calling me. Because of that, I would periodically step across that line, outside of God’s will and desire for my life. This lead to a number of consequences that all summed up in the simple fact: I had some learning to do and if I was going to continue to step outside of what God wanted for me, then it was going to be learned the hard way–by my own choice. I dealt with patience, I dealt with forgiveness, I even dealt with self-control. Each situation tested me and stretched me and because of that, I grew. I grew to not just know but to understand. I began to comprehend that God’s plans are always going to be better than my own. I began to learn that each experience is another page. There are times I have to truly experience the situation to be able to move on to the next step in my life. I came to terms with the idea that instantaneous satisfaction is rarely worth it and if possible, deal with the longer wait to get the best result.
I now have a job that I am thoroughly enjoying, working for a company that believes the same things that I do and honors my priorities of God number one, my husband number 2 and work will always come after them. We are experiencing the peace of financial stability and able to invest in our futures. I love my church and the youth that I work with and am blessed to have the opportunity to see patches of their growth as they seek to discover God in a deeper way. I am seeing the blessings of honoring God in every aspect of my life and it is as wonderful as He always promised.
