In my early twenties, I landed the job of “Local Marketing Director” for a BIG Fortune 500 company. I thought I was on TOP of the world!
But, the abusive man I was divorcing knew where I worked. I was FORCED to quit my “dream job” and go into hiding, for my own safety.
Matter of fact, I had to STEP BACK from the professional world, altogether, and GIVE BACK everything I’d worked so hard for.
At the time, I was CRUSHED! It was a huge SETBACK in my checkbook, on my resume and for my career.
Setback Or Set-up?
But if I’d stayed in that job, I probably NEVER would have met David.
After 16 years of marital bliss, I have to admit, he’s one of the BEST things that ever happened to me!
If I hadn’t met David, chances are, I wouldn’t have ended up going into MINISTRY.
In God’s plan, I have an AMAZING son that is developing into a pastor, and a TALENTED daughter that is blossoming into a worship leader.
This past weekend, I walked onto a stage in front of a crowd of THOUSANDS and had to ask, “God, WHY do all these people want to hear from ME?”
I don’t know what you’re going through, but I DO know this:
The very thing we fear to be a setback is actually God’s big SET UP for our “God-sized” COMEBACK!!!
Prayer For Today
God, sometimes in the moment, things look hard and we can’t see your victorious plan working in our lives.
Give us the encouragement to walk with bold faith and follow you straight to that “Jeremiah 29:11” destiny that you have planned for us! Amen!
