Seeking God’s will for your life brings gladness of heart.
In coming to Reformation Developmental Center that is Pastored by Juanita Gibbs (read her blog post from today) that I stepped into God’s will for my life.
The reason I know I am in God’s will where I am at is because growth is happening, cultivation of gifts has been occuring, purpose has come forth and an overwhelming sense of fulfillment has come within.
Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
1 Chronicles 16:10 NASB
Never in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I would be truly and completley happy in my life. I had spent so much of it being negative and looking at things from that perspective dampened every outlook I had.
To work with the children at church as an ordained Youth Teacher, to blog 4 to 5 days a week, work on projects that have kingdom impact. Write a book (of which I am still writing) and have two more potential books to write. Being part of a family of God that loves, accepts and helps me continue to grow.
These things came only by seeking the Lord and asking Him where did He want me to be. My soul had done made the choice 2x before and the tenure with those ended and to much pain I have to say.
The gladness of heart has only come by seeking God for what His will for my life was to be, and its been a joyous thing ever since.
