Isn't it amazing how God uses people to confirm things in our lives?
A personal struggle I've had over the past year is finding my purpose in life. Why can't I find a job using my degree? Why am I working where I am? Why am I single? What's next? What am I supposed to do next and how soon can I get the heck outta here?
I've found myself constantly being so anxious about my future. So much so, that I was missing the moments. I haven't been soaking it all in. If I have to live this life, why spend every day being discontent? Why not appreciate what you've been giving and live each day to the fullest?
Back to God's confirmation. I was working this weekend and was talking to a military man that I really respect. Not knowing my situation at all, as he addressed the group he touched on the very issues I have been struggling with. He said that he found himself asking God why he was punishing him, when finally it clicked...it's not about me, it's about Him.
Of course there was more to the speech that I won't go into, but the point it, his words were exactly what I needed to hear. I'm so thankful for a God that uses people to confirm things in our lives. It may not be in an audible voice, but it's comforting to know that He cares enough to use others to speak to me when I need it the most.
