A year ago, I don’t think I even knew that my purpose would have morphed into what it has. Exactly a year ago, I was just a college student.
I am coming up on year of blogging and my life has been changed.. woah
In this past year, I have.. made it so that I will graduate in three years! This was one of my biggest struggles in the past year. What should have been really simple to figure out took the WHOLE semester. I was so ready to just give up. But it’s in those moments of weakness that God shine the brightest.
I have started a business only to realize that it was not for me.. Though I will forever use the product, because it is made with us in mind and I absolutely love it! For a while I was even writing for another group and I thought that was SUPER huge.
At the last two things, God said “no no no.” *I imagine Him shaking His finger at me* He wanted me to be solely focused on the vision He had for me. So I stopped writing for the group and was no longer apart of the business, to focus on what God had placed before.
In Psalm 2 God is laughing because of how prideful people have become. They hold so much pride thinking they have done it all in their own strength, but in reality God blessed them with the position they were in. Since God was the one to bless them with it, He could easily take it away. He laughs at their confusion, not them.
Now I am totally sure I was in this place a couple ties throughout the year. I am not ashamed to say that I have been prideful, because I am a sinner. We are all sinners, its the way we were born. What is important is that we recognized and make the effort not to do it again. It’s time we humble ourselves of the blessings God has given us.
I then ended up finding the business that is right for me and in this next year I am going to freaking rock. Not a soul will stand in my way. God is guiding my path. I am helping people change their lives! This is what I have always dreamed of. It’s no longer a dream anymore, t’s actually happening. The only reason it is happening is because I have stepped out on faith. I know that God is my assistant. He is not with us to do all the work. If he were going to do all the work, we wouldn’t be here!! God has purpose for you life! Tap into the blessings that God has for you. Make time for Him and He will show up like never before. He is for us and not against us.
Change is incremental. Nothing happens overnight.
Our life will not drastically change from one moment to the next. God does not work like that. He wants us to see that we can not live in this world without Him. I promise you, you cannot journey without Him. He is the only way for all of us. God is protecting, positioning and preparing us to go in the world and do great things. It’s incremental changes every day that will get us to where our purpose is at one hundred!
As a generation when we want something, we can pretty much have it then. This is not the case in our spiritual journey. God works in mysterious ways my friends. So when something is on your heart, ask God to guide your footsteps, so that you are working towards what He has prepared for you!
Our blessings are always useful!

I have learned that while a break is always needed, we should not use our break as a reason to be lazy about what God has placed in our life. Our breaks should be spent selflessly building ourselves up, so that we can jump back into our work better than before. All of our blessings are useful in our life’s journey.

Now I am a purpose driven, Jesus seeking, heart forward believer bringing people out of their own darkness into something greater than themselves. Life is not about what we can do in our own strength. It is about what God can do through us.
Friends I hope you have a happy happy Wednesday and that this post really resonated with you.
much love, Tae!
The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom
2 Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
7 “I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
8 Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
9 You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”
10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son,[b] lest [c] He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
