Barefoot Devotions

For Such A Time As This

I wrote this 5 years ago after a life-changing event. I just thought I would share this since we all struggle daily and often wonder why things happen to us. I spent my whole life wondering why about the events of my childhood and family life.

“Every person, every act of goodness & evil, every word spoken, every tragedy experienced, all the sadness & heart break you’ve ever felt & every tear you’ve cried have a purpose. All things do work together for the good of those who love Him & with greater purpose than ever imagined.”

During this time, I saw God at work. He was making all things work together for ME while I was in the most undeserving state of my life. People were very disheartening at this time and did not see any hope for the decision that would be coming. I chose to believe that God would stand by me and carry me through the upcoming trial that would last almost three years. He did just that. Even though it was an ugly and painful time, it was the most peaceful and spiritually awakening moment in my life.

For me, I feel like I’m just down here saying, “Hey God. I have faith in You. I’m not sure why I’m going through this or experiencing this but I believe in You, your Will, and You have what’s best for me in the works.” I have no idea what the future holds or why certain things happen but no matter what is thrown my way, I know that as long as I stand with Jesus everything is going to be okay.

Through this time in my life, this ONE moment in my life, God revealed Himself in a way I never imagined, in a way I’ve never felt. My life came crashing before me (literally) and everything I ever experienced, I knew there was a purpose. It wasn’t wasted. Every single moment had a purpose. I was prepared for such a time as this and would be wholeheartedly ready for God’s plan for my life.

You are being prepped for your moment. Embrace it because through the storms, our character, our passions, and our purpose is discovered.

“And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
