Change of plans :)

Alright, so if you have reading past blogs, you know that I'm 16 and my dream is to one day own a business selling my jewelry. Well, it's amazing how things change in a matter of only 2 weeks!

No, let me change that. It's amazing how God can change things :)

Within 2 weeks God completely changed my perspective. He let me realize that the many plans I had were made without Him, and were altogether selfish. My thought was "God, if you don't want me to have a business, shut the door on it." (Now, don't get me wrong. Those who own businesses, or sell their own products may have a different story)

Anyways, during those two weeks I seriously considered becoming a missionary-- something that I hadn't thought about since I was little. And, throughout those two weeks, all I could think about was "Seek first the kingdom of God" (Matthew 6:33) and "The labor is great, but the laborers are few" (Matthew 9:37). I spent A LOT of time in prayer, and in His Word...and these thoughts didn't change. I mean, think about it- what could possibly be better than to see people groups that had once never even heard the name of Christ, come to believe in Him?

I'm undecided on a lot of things...like whether or not I'm going on a missions trip, which bible college/training I'll go to, and most of all: what country I'll go too...but, God will let me know when the time comes! I will just have to remain faithful in prayer and commitment.

  1. Put your faith in God and he will guide you. Right now you are awfully young and God is still shaping and forming you into the adult you will someday grow up to be. His plans for you today may well change 4 years from now, so listen with your heart and you can't go wrong. God Bless you. :)
