Today’s guest post is written by Kimberly Price…
My youngest daughter is nine years old, soon to be ten, and I’m constantly telling her that she should not be discouraged by what she sees as failure or not “measuring up.” I remind her that she is a work in progress and that God will use everything she has learned about herself and use it for his Glory!
How often I need that reminder! I’ve been blessed with a variety of positions and responsibilities I’ve had, both in and outside of ministry. I’ve made lifelong friendships. I’ve learned new things. And I’ve been asked to step out of my comfort zone more often than not.
I believe that through all of my experience, God is continually preparing me for what comes next! I may not see the “big” picture but he does. I, like my daughter, have to tell myself that I’m a work in progress. I have much more to learn and many more lives to love. I can never be finished…until I am face to face with God, and he tells me I’ve done my last job.
How excited I will be when I know I’ve finished the race that was set before me! It’s certainly been an interesting journey so far!
How is God using your today to prepare and purpose your tomorrow?
(The current Preparation series is intended to help you look for, notice, and acknowledge God working in your life. At the end of the month, I’ll give away a free ticket to the Living Proof Live with Beth Moore event in Springfield, IL, October 25-26, 2013. All you have to do to qualify for the free ticket drawing is to comment on one or more blog posts throughout the month of March. The ticket will be given away on April 1st (and it’s not an April Fools joke!). (If you live too far away to attend the event, I have an alternate giveaway and will then pass along the ticket to someone else.)
