Destiny

Who are we? Why are we here? Those questions have plagued our ancestors since the beginning of time. Adam knew he was to work the land and tend the animals right away, but Noah was six hundred years old before he saved his family and the animals from the flood. I heard Joel Osteen say on Hallmark’s Home and Family, “Even when we don’t realize it, God is preparing us for where we’re supposed to be.”

Noah went about his business, living his life, unaware that he and his family would start a new world. I wonder, would he have done anything differently in the half-millennium or so of his life before he knew of the ark?

We’re going about our business, doing our thing, and all the while God is building the fulfilment of our destiny inside us. And when the time is right, He’ll unveil it. Until then, we must do what is in front of us to do, following the voice of the Holy Spirit.

God hasn’t forgotten about you. He loves you, He has a plan for you, and it is good.

About cewaterman

I love God, my family, and writing--in that order. I live in Colorado, and I like to play golf, hike (not 14'ers, that's my husband's passion), and generally enjoy the beautiful scenery that God created. I have two beautiful daughters, three wonderful grandchildren, and a husband who has loved me well for over thirty years. I am truly blessed. I love encouraging people on the journey to becoming what God created them to be, including myself!

    Just when I’ve been wondering what God’s plan is for me here in my new home. These are words I needed to hear. Praise God.
