We have all had times where we feel lost. Lost about our job, lost about our relationships, even lost about our connection with God. In these times it’s easy to wander about searching for answers and trying to find God’s purpose. Like Stitch in Lilo and Stitch, we can find ourselves searching for a place we belong, for a family. It’s normal to be confused about our purpose because it’s something that God holds tenderly in His hands and we don’t always see how where we are or what we are doing helps on our given life path. It’s easy to feel as though we are slipping and there is no one around to catch us; but God is always there reaching out His hand. Don’t think that you are the only one who is questioning your purpose, many people are and all people have done so at some time. God does not leave us purposeless; He gives us a purpose and a belonging. We belong in the family of God as His chosen children, and our purpose is to do whatever it is we are doing right now, because it is what God wants us doing right now. And what we are doing right now has a purpose of it’s own in helping make our future.
When we are lost
Published by carriedinthecross
I am a young woman who grew up in British Columbia. In BC was all I ever wanted; I had my poodle (Max) and all my friends, Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium and Sunday afternoons at one of my favorite beaches it was paradise. But God had a different plan for my life and my dad's job landed us in Alberta and now where I remain, in small town Souris Manitoba. The transitions from paradise to prairie were difficult and I will admit that now 10 years later I still refer to home as Abbotsford BC. Through this crazy pathway trek across Canada I have had one true constant, God; and though none of it was easy, everything that has happened in my life has formed in me a true lasting friendship with the one I call Immanuel. Because no matter how far from home we are God is with us, and thanks to God I have found an almost completely over looked beauty in Manitoba. If you open your eyes you will see that God has planted wondrous things everywhere you go. View all posts by carriedinthecross

All the way my Savior leads me, what have I to ask besides. Can I doubt His tender mercies, who through life has been my guide.
