Different People/Different Purposes

Jeremiah-29-11-LONG

It’s amazing how when you talk to certain people they make you feel a certain kind of way.  I say that because I recently talked to one of my best friends, and talking to her really just gave me the kick start I needed and allowed me to refocus.  It wasn’t anything that she said in particular, it was just the fact that she knows me and has known me for so long and when talking to her I could really just be myself.  Then I think about when I talk to my husband, who really is my confidant.  It’s like God placed this man in my life for so many different reasons, and one of them is really to help me figure out me.  What I mean is, often times I think about a lot of different things in my mind just gets all jumbled up, but when I try to talk to an average person about it, I am not able to fully express what I mean in a way that they will understand. With my husband however, when I talk to him, he always helps me put things into perspective.  I mean it seems as though the light bulb in my head just clicks on during our conversation and what I couldn’t express to anyone else, now makes sense. And not only does it make sense to me, but he also understands.  Now, when I talk to either one of my brothers, no matter what situation is going on around me or how good or bad I may feel, they always bring such happiness to my spirit and cheer me up because they are so funny and crazy.  But in my dealings with them, they also challenge me to be a better me, a better sister, a better wife, a better daughter, a better friend, just an overall better person in general.

I gave these examples to say this, different people have different purposes in your life.  Ultimately, their purpose should be to help you along life’s journey and help push you towards your purpose.  Stop trying to make folks a part of your life who aren’t trying to help you get to your purpose.  AND stop giving people a role in your life that they were never meant to play.  Everyone can’t be your best friend, everyone can’t be your husband or wife, everyone can’t be your brother or sister, so do not expect them to act like it.  Then turn around and get disappointed when they don’t.  That is only setting yourself up for failure.  We have such high expectations for people, which many times is why we end up getting hurt.  If you put people in the right place in your life, and deal with them from the right perspective it will save you a lot pain and heartache, and that’s speaking from personal experience.

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore and who always will. So, don’t worry about people from your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.  And thank God for the new people He will send your way to help thrust you towards the destiny and greatness that you have on your life. #iDeclare #differentpeopledifferentpurposes

Prayer:

Father God in the name of Jesus, I thank you for helping me to understand the different roles that people play in my life.  I decree and declare that I will not give anyone a role that you never intended to play.  Thank you for those who will push me towards my destiny in you.  Help me gain a stronger spirit of discernment so I can know who they are.  I trust You Lord, and I thank You that You are the head of my life.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

Scripture:

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

John 15:16 ESV “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.”
