Give It Time

Updated: Jan 9

Have you ever heard the phrase, "things take time?"

If you still need to, this phrase is said very often. It can be referred to different things such as weight loss, figuring out your career, etc, but today, I will approach this phrase from the angle of fulfilling purpose. I do not know if you remember in our first blog when I mentioned that as young women, we should spend our teenage and youth years discovering our interests, passions, talents, and gifts, but to do this, we must first know God as much as it is important to spend our teenage and youth years knowing God and discovering our passions, interests, talents, and gifts. We must also understand that it takes time. It takes time to discover your purpose and to know God. We cannot know God fully throughout our teenage and youth years; we cannot even know God fully throughout our lifetime. God is limitless; generations have come and gone, but no generation has discovered him fully. I do not want you to be under pressure to discover your purpose on earth; you need to be patient with yourself and hear God properly. Many people often say that what you enjoy doing the most without getting tired or bored is your passion, and therefore, your purpose lies there. Your passion could be your purpose, but this is different for everyone. We are different, we have different interests and passions, and we do not and cannot all discover our purpose simultaneously. Some discover theirs before others. 

But whenever you discover your purpose. Take your time in establishing it. For example, if a person's purpose is to encourage others. There are many ways they can achieve this. It could be through text messages, social media, emails, Word of mouth, etc. By learning and establishing different ways to encourage others, this individual can fully achieve their purpose. No purpose is greater or lesser than the other. God loves every one of us the same, and we must learn to see ourselves the same. Our society ranks people, families, and everything, but an individual's purpose is theirs, and God assigned it. What matters the most is knowing your purpose and fulfilling it to the best of your ability. There is a reason for every purpose. God has assigned each purpose for a reason. God has an ultimate plan for the world; we are all part of it. Doing our parts will help us achieve God's plan. We must make sure we are trying and doing our best each day to fulfill our purpose, and at the end of time, at the end of the world, we will all be rewarded by God. 

Do you know or have heard about the Late Mrs. Ibidunni Ighodalo? The Late Mrs. Ibidunni Ighodalo was a kind, selfless, and loving woman. She was a woman who looked beyond herself. Her purpose was to help others. She served others passionately through her foundation and business, Elizabeth R Events. I did not know of her until her death on June 14th, 2020, but what is significant about this is that her life, her story, and her purpose announced her to the whole world despite her death. This is how it is supposed to be for all of us. When you fulfill your purpose and destiny, you inspire all, even those who do not know you. I want to challenge you today to begin to discover your purpose, take your time doing it, establish it, and if you have found your purpose, continue walking in it. 

Thank you so much for reading; God Bless You Greatly. Remember to like, comment, share, and subscribe. If you are reading and do not believe in God, I encourage you to have an open heart and mind and give God a chance to prove himself to you. Please say this prayer: "Heavenly Father, I am a sinner and come to you to ask you to forgive me of my terrible sins. Thank you for dying for my sins and bearing the shame on that Cross so I may have eternal life. Today, I confess with my mouth that I have sinned against you, and believe with my whole heart that Jesus is Lord, and God raised Him from the dead on the third day. He is seated on the Heavenly throne and intercedes on my behalf. I give you my heart, soul, and life and pray that I will obey thy Word. In the precious name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen." If you just said that prayer, welcome to the family of believers. Congratulations!! Heaven rejoiced; God is so glad and happy to have you in his family. I will be praying for you and your walk with God. Feel free to contact me on the next steps in this new chapter in your life.
