Perfect Preparation

"Every experience God gives us, every person He puts into our lives, is the perfect preparation for a future only He can see." - Corrie ten Boom

What if God has you where you are for a purpose? Sometimes it seems like we can never be happy where we are. Maybe we're going through something tough like cancer, a family member's death, bullying, loneliness, depression, or just plain sadness. Maybe people don't "get" us and we wish they would. But what if God put you right where you are - even if it seems hard to believe - for a miraculous purpose? God knows what's coming in your future, and He has BIG plans for you. What you choose to do today could impact someone else's life - or YOUR life - for better or worse. What if we reached out to the lonely people? What if we were friends to the friendless, love to the unloved, hope to the hopeless? What if we shined Christ's love into their life and changed both of our lives - even if the effect isn't immediate?

Remember that God has you right where you are for a reason. Live for Him, stand for Him, and don't look back.

This is such a great reminder!
There may be pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning!
Jesus works In awesome ways!

This summer we had to move out for a little while and now we know God put us there to help a new friend we met :D

This year, I had a babystitting job, and it was really hard. Now I know that I had it for a reason because one of the kids got saved while I babysat!
