Heres what I've learned.I believe God blessed me with patience and encouragement. On numerous times I have been told that I have way too much patience. But, is there such a thing? As a result, I love sharing my story with other women, encouragement for what I've been through and overcame, and how they can move forward in their life as well. It had a lot to do with learning that I didn't have to go through life alone and knowing who my creator was. Before this, it was hard for me to believe I had a mission or an assignment. How could such a broken person have an assignment from God. Growing up we attended church every Sunday so I had a good foundation, but I fell away from God several times throughout my life and tried to walk my own path. I wanted everything my way, when I wanted it, and how I wanted it. I was spiritually immature and believed God existed but didn't have a personal relationship with Him. Giving up control to God seemed crazy to me. I needed to hold on to a small portion of it because I didn't totally trust He had my best interest at heart. Thats sounds crazy now that I look back. Not trusting the person that created me, "What?" He knows every hair on my head, my beginning, and my end. I promise you He will never take you anywhere that would hurt you or lead you astray. He will be with you every step of the way when he gives you an assignment. We may not know why he leads us to or through places that he does, but I choose to trust Him even when I don't understand. There is only but one way, His way. If you are hurting today or feel lost, pray that God will guide you and give you clarity for your journey. Blessings, Tyra
How do we know it is God speaking to us? How can we tell His voice is leading us in the direction we are going? God has an assignment for all of us and we were all born with gifts we can share. You may think you have nothing to give or share with others, BUT you do. No matter how small or insignificant you may think you or your talents are; you have a gift. Whether its making others feel better when they are around you, or you have the gift of laughter and can make others smile. How about you are a great leader, mentor, listener, motivator, encourager, caretaker, lover, forgiver, or you have a special skill set for your career. We must share our gifts. Don't keep them to yourself because someone needs what you have in only the way you can deliver it.
