God Doesn't Need You


This fall season has been one for the books. It's been absolutely insane. Trying to figure out all these changes with my body has been tough. At 16 weeks the nausea finally went away and for that I am so thankful- I am feeling so much better. Work wise, it has been such a whirlwind. God is so faithful and has been so good to our church and to me but oh my, I've learnt a lot and been forced to deal with stuff I haven't wanted to deal with.

Through all the craziness of our pastor and wife just abruptly leaving and Mark and I trying to fill in so many gaps- somehow God has thread through this life lesson so loud and clear over these past fifteen weeks.

He doesn't need me.

Now, some people would find offence to that… but it has been the most comforting thing to my spirit over this season. God's got it. God is so much bigger, so in control, so sovereign that whether I am on board or not, God will still do His thing. Whether people leave abruptly or not, God knew and isn't phased.

God has a plan. He always has since the beginning of time and has a plan to come back soon and rule and reign on the new earth. God has a sovereign plan in place. He has it all covered. The bible says in Matthew 16:18 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it." God is building His church and nothing, not even the gates of Hell will overpower it. Our God is so strong. This stuff excites me. It gives me so much hope. 


& the most humbling part about this lesson I've been learning… God doesn't need me but He wants me to be apart of his divine Kingdom plan. Wow. Thank you Lord. You want me? Sinful, messed up, selfish me?? Yup. He wants me and wants to use my life to bring glory to His name. He gives my life purpose, meaning and significance. I am in a fight - fighting for souls on the Lord's army. 

and it's thrilling!! I love this journey with God. I love being apart of His team knowing that He has already won. What has gotten me through these past crazy months is knowing that God has complete control and will continue to build His church no matter what. 

No matter what season of life you are going through, know that God has a plan, is in control and is completely sovereign. You can trust those promises.
