for the past 2 years, i've been wondering why i work where i work. why was i placed here? why haven't i been moved? what is my purpose?
i've been struggling with this alot because i know i haven't had the right attitude toward my job. i'm sure the reason is right in front of my face, i just don't want to see it.
i'm perusing through the paper today as i'm getting ready to leave school and i come across a little article in the San Angelo Standard Times entitled "Daily Promise". these are posted daily and i usually don't read the paper during the week, so i never notice them.
today, i did. it reads as follows...
Ephesians 5:20 Daily Promise
"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;" KJV
"When you feel down, you may find it difficult to give thanks. Take heart--in all things God works for our good if we love him and are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). Thank God, not for your problems, but for the strength He is building in you through the difficult experiences of your life. You can be sure that God's perfect love will see you through."Life Applications Bible Notes
this doesn't tell me my purpose, but it does remind me that i am being taken care of. the God of the universe cares enough to put this tiny 3"x2" article in the newspaper for me to read in order to ensure that someday, my purpose will be seen.
someday, i will be stronger because of it.
