My entire life I have been a visionary and one who has believed that God’s plan for me is an amazing one, and that His desire was to take my ordinary life and make it extraordinary. My friends used to tell me that my dreams were too big and that I needed to take them down a notch. You can imagine the disappointment and humiliation I felt when every dream I had ever believed, didn’t come true at the time I expected.
I’ve been at quite a few crossroads and navigated through more transitions than I can count. Since people didn’t really talk about it, I felt alone in my journey most of the time. Faced with more questions than answers, I began to dig deeply into the Word of God to gain understanding. It has taken me years to see God’s heart, and I’ve learned that crossroads don’t require me to figure out my life, but rather to rest in my Heavenly Father’s love. Still, it’s a process and not a one-two-three formula.
I have a strong need to understand and know truth, not just a bunch of religious clichés, but to know experientially. I needed to know God loved me, that my life mattered, that I belonged, and that God really did have an amazing plan for my life despite the many disappointments and unfulfilled dreams.
Time. It took lots of time to erase the religious-ese and trite answers from my well-meaning friends. Those kinds of answers do nothing to feed your soul. What makes me unique is that in spite of every disappointment, I have confidence and trust my life to the care of a personal and loving Father who has a wonderful plan perfectly designed for me. In fact, I still believe in every dream that I’ve ever had, even the ones that have yet to be fulfilled.
My anchor. I searched the Scriptures and looked for trends and patterns in my own life. I read every book I could find, I prayed and learned to listen. At the same time, my professional career and ministry enabled me to coach and counsel hundreds of executives and leaders through their own crossroads. Without realizing it at the time, God was orchestrating my future. He began to reveal good news, and here are three life changing truths I would like to share.
