“O Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”
The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Jeremiah 1:4-8
I love this scripture, for me it’s a clear picture of what God want’s from our generation as young people.. I have and still do deal with the question “God what is my purpose? Where do you want me to serve? What do you want me to do? Where do you want me to go?”
Have you ever wished God would write a letter with your purpose on it and just posted it from heaven to you?
Have you ever wanted to do something so badly but it never worked out? This is because God has His plans for your life that are far better than what you want for yourself. So thinking about this, how do we allow God’s plans to take over ours? God says when we obey Him and seek him diligently, when we pray He will reveal all to us.
We have an assignment as young people, if we look around us, the wars, the pain, the brokenness. We have a task here on earth, I have heard people say, “When i’m older I will serve God, When i’m 30 I will give my heart to the Lord,” But God is saying RIGHT NOW!!! He needs us to do things now..We need to share the truth. Jeremiah was resisting God’s call. He didn’t think he was good enough or smart enough or old enough or prophet enough. But God reminds Jeremiah that no one knows him better than God does. And in that same light we need to look at ourselves and say Lord, I might think I’m not good enough, but You know me better than I know myself so use me Lord.
Never be afraid of the tasks that God puts in your way. He only sends you to do the things that he knows you can do.
God is saying He knew you, as he knew Jeremiah, way before you were born or even conceived. HE thought about you and planned for you. So when you feel discouraged or inadequate, remember that God has always thought of you as valuable and that he has a purpose in mind for you.
Jeremiah was “appointed” by God as “spokesman to the world.” God has a purpose for each and everyone of us, but some people are appointed by God for specific kinds of work. we are also called to do work for God. Whatever work you do should be done for the glory of God. If God gives you a specific task, accept it cheerfully and do it with diligence. If God has not given you a specific call or assignment, then seek to fulfill the mission common to all believers – love, obey, and serve God until his guidance becomes more clear.
Often people struggle with new challenges because they lack self-confidence, feeling that they have inadequate ability or experience. Jeremiah thought he was “too young” and inexperienced to be God’s spokesman to the world. But God promised to be with him. We should not allow feelings of inadequacy to keep us from obeying God. He will always be with us. If God gives you a job to do, he will provide all you need to do it.
Jeremiah’s call by God teaches how intimately God know us. He valued us before anyone else knew we would exist. He cared for us while we were in our mother’s womb. He planned our life while our body was still being formed. He values us more highly than we value ourselves.
So, after reading all this, what am I called to do? I am called through the love that I have for God to endure. It will be His strength that upholds me, it will be His mercy that will sustain me and His grace that will cover me. Jeremiah was often mocked. No one would listen to his warnings, yet he endured because his faith was firmly rooted in God. Even when he was discouraged, Jeremiah’s heart for God overcame his strong negative emotions.
I will be blessed if this helps one person, remember God can use you at any age and the time is now!

I read a quote on the internet one day that said “If you only pray when you’re in trouble, you’re in trouble”
Think about it… how true?
What would we do without prayer?
Prayer is so essential.We need prayer to be apart of us daily.
So, what does the scripture “Pray without ceasing” actually mean?
Thinking about the words pray without ceasing may make you think of people walking around with their hands together, eyes closed and heads bowed but while certain ways we pray and times we set aside are important in our communication with God, praying all the time obviously doesn’t mean we should pray in a way that’s noticeable every moment of the day. It also does not mean you’re supposed to devote yourself to reciting ritualistic patterns and forms of prayer.
To “pray without ceasing” means nonstop talking to God throughout the day. Prayer is to be a way of life,you’re to be continually in an attitude of prayer. It is living in continual God-consciousness, where everything you see and experience becomes a kind of prayer. It should be instant and intimate communication just like you would chat to your best friend.
To “pray without ceasing” means when you are tempted, you hold the temptation before God and ask for His help. When you experience something good and beautiful, you immediately thank the Lord for it. When you see evil around you, you ask God to make it right, if that is His will. When you meet someone who does not know Christ, you pray for God to draw that person to Himself and to use you to be a faithful witness. When you encounter trouble, you turn to God as your Deliverer.
All life’s thoughts, deeds, and circumstances become an opportunity to communicate with your Heavenly Father. In that way you “constantly set your mind “on the things above, not on the things that are on earth” (Colossians 3:2).
“Bloom where you are planted” ❤
Have you ever felt like you not where you want to be in life just yet?
You may be in a job that’s not really what you enjoy doing and working on your dream in your spare time…But like a flower that grows through a crack in the concrete, sometimes we have to make the best of our situations and bloom where we have been planted.
Sometimes our dreams take time. Not everyone can quit their jobs to follow a dream.
but instead of getting upset at your situation, why not try blooming where you have been planted? You may not realize it, but where you are now is providing you with life lessons for your next adventure.
Every chapter in your life builds a foundation to launch the next chapter. So you have a choice. You can either feel sorry for yourself, wondering why you are not where you want to be and cursing the situation that you are in. Or you can look at this as a lesson. Ask yourself, “What is this here to teach me?” and “How can I use this experience to drive me to my ultimate goal?”Learn to shine your light so bright that it drowns out the darkness. Keep working towards your next step and understand that your destiny is not determined by your current circumstances.
So, why not choose to be happy now?
To truly blossom, you must stop complaining.
Your job and circumstances may not be ideal right now. But you have to decide for yourself what you can change and what you cannot.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you can’t change it, change your attitude about it. – Maya Angelou
We all want to be the best wives we can be right?
And yes,we make mistakes and get busy just like everyone else.
There are times where I feel so helpless because I want to help alleviate stresses, pressures and demands that my husband endures as well and it is during these times that I am so blessed to have prayer by my side ♥
Stormie O’Martian’s “Power of a Praying Wife.” Is one of the best books i have ever read, my mom gave it to me after i tied the knot and I suggest this book for all christian wives, it’s amazing. I won’t go into details but this is a must read for all christian woman!
So, why should we as christian wives pray for our husbands?
You see, my husband benefits from my prayers, but It’s beneficial for me too. I benefit from giving all my concerns to the Lord instead of trying to handle them myself. And in the process of being in my “war room” (Prayer time) out of love for my husband, I in turn, have been growing and digging into my own heart the desire to be more of a helpmate and blessing to him.
I strongly encourage you to start praying for your husband, prayer is a precious gift to give, show your spouse how deeply you value him and give him this tender gift of love.
Dino, If you ever get to see this, I love you and i pray for you every day ♥
