We have a purpose.

You and I were each created with a perfect plan.

And I don’t know what He has planned for your life; quite frankly I don’t always understand what He has planned for mine but I do know that He has a plan. That you and I were created according to His purpose. We matter.

And this plan. . . well it might not always feel or look good or like we thought it would but that doesn’t mean that He isn’t working for our GOOD.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

And we may at times miss the mark and find ourselves going off course; away from what His plans might be. But He can always draw us back, He can use anything we might do to accomplish good in our lives.

He already knows how our stories are going to play out.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will. . . Ephesians 1:11

I love the song Already There by Casting Crowns because it paints such a beautiful picture of this:

From where I’m standing
Lord, it’s so hard for me to see
Where this is going
And where You’re leading me
I wish I knew how
All my fears and all my questions
Are going to play out
In a world I can’t control

When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory

‘Cause You’re already there
You’re already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You’re already there
You’re already there

From where You’re standing
Lord, You see a grand design
That You imagined
When You breathed me into life
And all the chaos
Comes together in Your hands
Like a masterpiece
Of Your picture-perfect plan

When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory

One day I’ll stand before You
And look back on the life I’ve lived
I can’t wait to enjoy the view
And see how all the pieces fit

One day I’ll stand before You
And look back on the life I’ve lived
‘Cause You’re already there
You’re already there
When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
‘Cause You’re already there
You’re already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You’re already there
You’re already there

What would it look like to live knowing that He has a plan and purpose for our lives?

  1. Good question. I think back 12 years ago to a time I desperately wanted to have a baby and my husband wasn’t ready. I spent a lot of time and energy focused on my lack of children instead of focusing on what I had been given. I never dreamed that one day I would have five kids. So I guess my answer would be embracing God’s plan and timing would look like trust and rest instead of consciousness. Easier said than done.
