Finding your purpose....

Jeremiah 29:11 says it best I believe, 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. ESV.
     Jerimiah is reaffirming what God has placed in our hearts before we were even born into this world. God has a purpose for each and everyone of us! He has things He has placed in our hearts He wants us to do to benefit His kingdom! The real queastion is are we fullfing them...
   At the beginning of the new year I made a list of goals for 2017. I want to see many things come to pass this year... I know God has place many things in my heart to be done for His glory.
    However I have found myself pondering on the thought why have I not brought these things to pass before now... honestly I don't have an answer for my own question.
    My continued health issues have made me to see things in a different perspective than ever before. I find myself longing to do things I have not been able to enjoy like sewing...
 One of the things I have always wanted was my own 18 inch doll clothes boutique. My girls are way past the age of playing with them. Yet that is my favorite thing to sew. I so want to write a children's book and have the outfits for girls to dress their dolls and bring the book to life during play time! I have started a book on my story and have not completed it yet...
 Typing is hard at times .... yet I find myself yearning to do these things!
     Proverbs 16:3 says commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established. (ESV)
This is my prayer that the Lord will help me see these things through. My prayer is when I stand before Him one day I can say I used all of my talents and purposes, that He placed in my heart to do.
I had a MRI a week ago, the findings were not what we had hoped for, my right arm and hand go numb and stays cooler than the rest of my body and wakes me up in the middle of the night in excruciating pain! The MRI showed compressed disk in my c5 and c6. However because we went through this last year with my right leg, My family Dr. is concerned it might be MS. We will know next Thursday. I say these things because I don't want someone else to miss their God given purpose! Live each day to its fullest for the Kingdom! Now my family and I are not believing in what the doctors think! We are claiming healing and life into my situation! We are believing that my health will return, because I am better used healed for Gods glory !
  I am praising Jesus in the hallway for these things. So much so I intend to start sewing again! I want fulfil the the things God has placed in my heart! What are you putting off for another day? What if we miss our opportunity because we we think we have plenty of time to see it through....
      What is it God has placed in your heart to complete? I hope you find time to see it through! I will be praying you do! I can't wait to share with you the things I get done for my Jesus! If you think of it please lift up my name in prayer ! For God makes no mistakes ! We are trusting in healing! Praying for each of you thanks for stopping by....  💜Shellie

  2. I love you so much and I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling better.. and I know what the doctors are saying now sounds so scary... but you have been through a lot and have always given God all of the glory for it. I'm sure he will bring you through this and write a beautiful story for you to share! I can't wait for your doll boutique to take off! I've always been one of your biggest fans! And the story idea is incredible!!! Please pursue this and share with me! Sometimes our dreams are built so slowly. Sometimes we have to move mountains one spoonful at a time... but they still move. I love you! Praying always :)
