God has a purpose for your life, right where you are right now.
In an episode of A Life You Love with host Renee Evans, Jamie Ivey shares a message for every woman that thinks that they should be like someone to have a purpose. The mom of three high school boys is reminding us all that God has a purpose in our life. Where we are, right now, God is using us for His Kingdom.
“I just wanted to encourage women that God has a purpose for their life right where they were, with the gifts He gave them, with the influence He gave them, with the people He surrounded them with. And that they could do something for the Kingdom. They don’t have to be like her, they could be themselves,” Jamie said.
Purpose for your life
She then urged every Christian to be content with where God places us. Whether it is our family, our ministry, and our career, God called us to be in those places; because He’s doing something through you.
“That’s what the journey is like of us saying, ‘I’m content with where God has been, because He’s doing something in my own personal life.’”
We don’t have to be like someone else to have a purpose. Everyone is unique and has his or her own journey to take.
“We’re on a journey, our own individual journeys.”
If you are thinking right now that you are not making any progress in your life, look back to where you came from. Look back on how you progressed into the person you are right now. You are in a different place than where you were last year. God is faithful and it is evident in your personal growth as you seek Him more every day.
“Not only are you reminded of like look at the faithfulness of God, but then you can look back and think ‘I was in such a weird place then, maybe, and look what God’s done for me now.’”
