“Mommy, why did God make me a human and not a vegetable?”
I LOVE these teachable moments!
I responded with, “Well, I believe God has an incredible plan for your life. He has some great things for you to do some day, and if you were a vegetable he wouldn’t have been able to use you in the same way. I think he needed a person, just like you to carry out the plan he has.”
He has plans for you too. Incredible plans, that only you, with your gifts, talents, personality and experience could do. You’re not an accident, you have a purpose. If you’re feeling useless, unseen, unwanted, unworthy know that the God who set the stars in motion, who tells the water to rise and fall, who creates every sunrise and sunset in all it’s glory each day, created you, a beautiful masterpiece and reflection of Him. He has a plan for you, are you ready to carry it out? Are you wiling to be used by God to carry out that plan?
Begin to pray with me that God will reveal that plan for your life, and get ready for the wild ride you’re about to embark on. Don’t let the excuses creep up, remember Moses, he tried that too…God had a plan, God has a plan and you’re a part of that.
