A Brooklyn girl born and raised. Public transportation is how I get around (still need to work on that license though lol) If you take public transportation than you know that, your destination for the day determines what train you need to get on and what stop you need to get off. If I’m going to the city I know to get off at Union Square 14th street. If Im going to work, i get off at Dekalb Avenue. If Im gonna meet up with friends at a restaurant that I ain’t never been to, i google the location before I leave the house so that I know what train or bus i need to get on.. I get on google maps and enter a DESTINATION so that it can show me the path to get there…I’am not about to just be swipin’ my metro card and hoppin’ on any train or bus hoping and praying that it takes me where I need to be. How stupid would that be? Lol
But why do some of us do this with our entire lives. Some of us have been hoppin’ on random trains with no destination and with no purpose in mind. Some of us are just riding trains back and forth all day long and going nowhere fast…
Don’t get business confused with productivity. We can be doing a whole lot, but if what we’re doing is NOT the purpose that was assigned to us by God, than it is pointless. You were created for more than just a 9-5 or a getting some degrees. (Not knocking that at all) You have a God given assignment. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, Gods word says that He has given you spiritual gifts and talents to use to bless and edify those around you. God didn’t give you those gifts so that you can pay bills and die. He gave you those gifts so that you can DO something with it and invest in His Kingdom.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.-Ephesians 2:10
God saved us for a reason. God did not save us so that we can just have bible studies all day and be Instagram famous for posting sweet Jesus quotes online. God wants our entire life to revolve around Him..our relationships to revolve around Him..and our decisions to revolve around Him..
Time is ticking. The devil is working overtime to draw as many people away from God as he could. The world NEEDS the church to BE the church and not just GO to church. The world needs God fearing women who are living out their God given purposes all for His glory and not just having tea time and talking about our “future husbands” all day. It’s time for us to get focused and get to work. Its time to be obedient to whatever God is telling YOU specifically, to do.
Take an evaluation of your life sis.. Why are you doing the things that you do? Is it because God told you or are you just winging it and hoping for the best? Why are you in that relationship? Is it headed towards marriage or is homeboy just stringing you along for the ride? So many of us claim to have been “lost but now found” yet we’re still riding these “trains” with no destination in mind and STILL lost.
I encourage you sis. Don’t just do stuff just to do it. Be a woman of purpose. Be a woman who waits on the Lord and seeks clear direction from Him. Find Gods purpose for your life. USE those gifts.. Even the ones that no one even knows you have because you’re too afraid to display it. You probably would effect so many people in your community alone, if you just opened your mouth and spoke what God’s placed on your heart…
Your obedience or disobedience doesn’t just effect you. It effects those around you. Your gifts aren’t for YOU.. Its for that broken girl who needs to hear your story.. Its for the divorced woman whose hopeless and depressed. Its for that girl whose been molested by a family remember and feels like its normal to be taken advantage of men. Its for that lost prostitute. Its for your unsaved cousin. Its for this broken, hurting, lost world that needs to hear the truth about Jesus….
Be purpose driven. Step out. Souls are waiting..
Love you! Xox
