“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Proverbs 14:30
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
A beautiful thing about life is that God made us each different and we each have a unique purpose as customized and special as our fingerprints. In the bible was every person named Abraham? Moses? David? Was every person God used a king? The head of their family? Was anyone perfect? Was anyone able to accomplish their purpose without God? The answer to all those questions would be no.
“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things and the things that are not to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God that is our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” 1Corinthians 1: 27-31
So I encourage you (and myself) to keep blazing ahead.
There is purpose in each day that we are on Earth.
“Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” Philippians 2:12-13
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.” 2 Timothy 1:9
