Reflecting on 49 and My Purpose Driven Life

Forty-nine years and 9 months ago, God began a miraculous work. He began to knit in my mother's womb - yes, He was knitting me. Like each of you, He was creating a being for which He would have great purpose. I would venture a guess to say that the Creator knew, at that time, before I took my first cry, what challenges I would face, what lessons I would learn, which events would make me sad and which would bring great joy.

When I consider my life and all Ihave been through, it brings tears to realize how He has shaped and molded the individual me. Life would put dents and cracks into my being, it may have even knocked me down a few times, but God the Creator would continue to spin His wheel, breathing Spirit and new life back into the vessel...reshaping, repairing, renewing.
On this 49th day of my earthly journey I am so very blessed. Each makes me smile and fills me with wonder at the blessings He has been poured into my vessel, making it overflow. Yahweh's faithfulness and evidence of His works in my life. An amazing, God-centered family. An enjoyable day job working with a fellow believer. My growing health and wellness business that has given me so much: relationships with caring, servant-hearted people filled with positivity and generosity; a chance to grow personally in mind and become healthier in body; and most importantly ...purpose.
I used to wonder what my purpose on this earth is, but now I wake each day filled with purpose. Wondering whom God might put in my path that I might reach out to and help them feel better. I love that I am making a difference, and my heart is filled with gratitude with each text, voice mail or email I receive thanking me for better quality of life. I am excited to continue my life's journey and see what the Creator has in store.
I encourage you to reflect on your own life...the difference your presence has made in the life of others. (You have and I hope you realize that!) You, too, were knitted by the Creator in your mother's womb - and He had a purpose for your life as it was created. May your journey bring fulfillment in His will.

Peace my friends!
