I made this post sometime last year on my facebook wall. I realized just how awesome God is, He will allow certain things to happen in your life so he can draw you closer to him. I decided to share it here with the hope that it will bless someone else as it blessed me.
” If you want to live a life of purpose and meaning, maximize the strengths God has given you.
Find ways to do more of what you do well and less of what you don’t.
(Before you were born, God knew you and shaped you for a divine purpose. He had good plans for your life)
The way God shaped you reveals how he wants to use you. In other words, if you want to know what you’re supposed to do with your life, you’ve got to look intently and deeply at how God wired you.
Your SHAPE — the spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, and experiences God gave you — reveals your purpose. Set aside some time to discover your purpose, based on how God shaped you.
It’s time to do away with surface living. Beginning from now, live from your core, let every fibre of your being be in line with the divine purpose God has for you. And watch him bless you every step of the way.
No experience is wasted with God, he can still bless you through it.
