3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5he[c] predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. 9And he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
11In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory

Well today, I hope this reading will some how open your eyes and heart and give you a better understanding of who you are, what your purpose is and Yes God’s design for your life…
For starters, God created your life with a huge purpose and plan? He placed in side you the plans of your life and the journey you will take to get there.

Around the spring and summer times, if you look at the flowers you will see beautiful butterflies. Some of them have beautiful shades of colors and patterns. What a lot of times happens is we forget the path of destiny the butterfly took. It was once a furry, furry ugly looking caterpillar that a lot of people see and are afraid of! Now the caterpillar knows it will soon have to go through an uncomfortable process that will transform it from a caterpillar to a butterfly. When the caterpillar is ready for its purpose it will first;
attach itself head down to a convenient twig, they shed their outer skin and begin the transformation into a pupa, a process which is completed in a matter of hours. After this process is completed the caterpillar will stay in this position for 2 weeks! In the 2 week process it will begin to transform itself into the beautiful butterfly it was intended to be. Now here is the thing, the caterpillar, butterfly process must take 2 weeks, if a human, animal or other insect would try to destroy the covering , it will harm the butterfly’s wings, and cause it not to function the way it is suppose to. Once the 2 weeks are done and nothing has been disturbed the butterfly and the transformation process! It will be able to finish off it’s purpose! And Live life the way God designed it to be! Sure it was painful at times, it was uncomfortable but the out come is so much greater then the process!!
Your saying to what does that have to do with me, very simple! You are in a process in your life! Where you are today is not your final destination. You like the butterfly will have to go through a transition and when the time comes, if you Trusted God wholeheartedly to direct your footsteps you too will fulfill your purpose in life! GOD IS A GOD OF STRATEGIC PURPOSE, AND ITS THAT STRATEGY THAT HE HAS THAT WILL MAKE YOU THE MAN OR WOMAN YOU WERE PLACED ON EARTH TO BE!
Isaiah 46:9-10 9[Earnestly] remember the former things, [which I did] of old; for I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is none like Me,
10Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose.
