11) For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12)Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. ~ Jeremiah 29 : 11  13 NIV

The Bible tells us some very key information about who we are, who we are destined to become, and how to get there. It's our instruction manual if you will. A handbook to life. Over the past month, I have really been getting so many revelations about my future, about what my destiny is in life. It came at first with the revelation of realizing that where I am is not where I'm supposed to stay. I had gotten very comfortable and content with my job, my education, and even my relationship with God. I started to get just a little lax, and then it came. Extreme discomfort on all fronts. I prayed every day, and I couldn't understand why this was all happening to me. What did I do?

Then as I started getting into my word, some familiar passages began to take new meaning. "All things work together for the good of they that love the Lord"........."If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move! and it shall be moved."............ "I can do all thing through Christ who strengthen's me."............. "I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence cometh my help, my help cometh from the Lord.".......... I began to learn that my destiny was in my own hands. The Bible tells me so. As long as I commit my plans to the Lord, love Him with all my heart and have, I have to say it one more time HAVE FAITH! As long as I am in Him, and He in me, I can do anything.

And then it came, revelations about a website....patience at work.....then going back to school for something completely unrelated to engineering; Meeting and Conference Planning? All of these things started to flood my mind and I found myself just trying to keep up and write things down or email them to myself as quickly as I could. God was speaking to me, and He still is. I have true faith that He is leading me to what He has for me. Leading me to things that are greater than I could have even imagined. And my faith has caused me to begin to take action, fast. To begin to make these things happen. To begin to move mountains with my little mustard seed of belief!

Brothers and sisters, be sure to remember the source of your strength, the reason for your being and the author of your story. Get into your word. Subscribe to a daily devotion if it helps, and live a life of purpose. If you don't know your purpose, make it your purpose to learn and figure out how to walk into your purpose. God has plans to prosper you. Plans to take you to amazing places, and use you to make this world a better place. You just have to submit to His will, seek Him and have faith!

Make March the month that you accelerate your journey into your destiny!
