Over the years, I’ve learned a few things – not many, but a few. In the process of discernment, I have to remind myself of several life principles about God’s working. First, I know that when God is working on one end, He’s also working on the other. God doesn’t work on one end where He’s not working on the other. If He is preparing me, He is preparing others. If he’s creating a ministry passion in my life, He’s working on the other end to bring it to fruition. Because we often don’t see what God is doing on the other end until the two ends meet, I have to remind myself to trust Him at His work. Even when I can’t see Him working in a particular part of my life, I must remind myself that He is working.
Finally, I’ve learned that God never wastes a circumstance or an experience. God uses the good and the bad stuff, the lessons learned in obedience and even the lessons learned in disobedience. He never wastes an experience. God will allow me the opportunity to share what I’ve learned through my circumstance and experience with others. He also uses these circumstances in preparation for others down the road in my own life.
So I see that God is working in my life. Sometimes it is more obvious than others, but He’s still working.
