Going From Punishment to a Purposeful Plan.

“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago” Warren Buffet, investor.

2Peter 1:2 NIV. 2)- Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.

Ann, a long-time, child hood friend phoned me. She was excited about being given a career promotion she had long desired. She asked me if I could attend the ceremonial breakfast where her promotion would be announced. I was so excited for her and I could hear the jubilation in her voice.

Ann had recently gone through a lot of life changing occurrences. A few months ago one of our classmates had died from a massive heart attack. A few months afterwards, her mother passed away, then shortly her sister passed suddenly. This was not in her plans to be suffering numerous emotional setbacks, however she persevered.

She asked me to please be in attendance. I didn’t immediately see how I could attend because my job vacation calendar was full for that day. I whispered to myself “God, you have it all under control.” I wanted to desperately be at her award ceremony. She said she wanted a familiar face to be there to support her. She wanted me there because I knew her the longest and knew about the struggles she endured to get to this executive level assignment. She said perhaps you can share a ice breaking moment and oral history about me to the audience.

All day at work I was in a meditative state and being with Ann was so heavy on my mind. I didn’t want to disappoint her. I called my daughter to ask if she could represent me and attend Ann’s promotional ceremony because I was scheduled to work. My daughter said she wasn’t sure, but she would try.

A small incident occurred on my job, that was an honest oversight on my part. I was cautioned to be more observant. I said ok. When I arrived to work the next day, I was punished for the mis-step and given the day off. Oh, Lord, things began to shift and move around right before my eyes. My heart was racing while trying to keep my mind calm. I was witnessing a miracle and in awe of what was happening. I had been praying for several days about Ann’s award breakfast and now the path had been cleared. I quickly and without hesitation exited the building. I walked out singing Amazing Grace , how sweet the sound. I entered my vehicle and began to get my praise on repeating , Thank you Lord. Do you see why I’m happy? Have you ever wanted something and you couldn’t do it on your own ? Have you made mis-steps and others tried to put you in a pit to lower your confidence , value and self esteem? I’m a witness that greater is He that is in you, hold on to your faith.

When we wholeheartedly try to be fair, upright, faithful, and kind we will be rewarded. Granted, I didn’t see the punishment coming, my mind was so engrossed with Ann’s ceremony that I forgot a small detail of my work assignment. However, the door was opened for me to be there for my true friend. Her face was brighter than ten thousand lights when she saw me enter the building. We both were emotional wrecks as we hugged she cried and said “ I knew you would make it” I shook my head in agreement and said “ Girl, I’m here and I have a story to tell you.” I was shortly called to the podium and shared highlights with the audience on how amazing a person my friend truly was.

I went from punishment to a purposeful plan. I’m here to encourage you to believe in a power greater than yourself. The darkest is just before dawn. When going through the darkest moments, hold fast, the dawn will arise. I didn’t foresee, that this day would unfold this way, but God did. It was all grace which is Gods unmerited favor. When we take our desires to the Father, it will be handled appropriately with diligence and due process. That is collecting, understanding, and assessing our situation.

God had established a purposeful plan for Ann and myself that this monumental moment would be shared and our desires fulfilled. Do you have an unexpected situation to share?. We are overcome by our testimonies. Tell your stories because you can go from punishment to purpose. God has our total health, it being mental, spiritual,financial, mindful etc. in his hands. He’s the keeper of our very heart.
