No matter where you are, you are where you are suppose to be.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Have you ever just stopped being busy and looked around at where you are?  Take your time and look around right now.  I am sure things pop into your head that say, "Well... I am here but I do not have ....."  Or "I am here but I sure would like to think about what being over there offers..."

God has placed you right where you are for a reason.  Despite our attempts to go off on different paths to seek things we think we need, He manages to keep us heading toward his plans for us.  Often our missteps create a longer journey to get where we are suppose to be.  Not sure about you, but that really makes me tired thinking about it.   

We watched War Room recently. If you have not seen it, rent it or find it on Netflix or Amazon Prime.  Wow.. Spoke to my heart in so many ways. 

I only belong to God.

If I am going through troubling times and feeling there is fault with others, I am allowing Satan to steal my joy.  God has put me RIGHT where I am suppose to be. SO if I am finding fault left and right, I am missing all the JOY God has for me right where I am. 

Then throw in praying for others and making it a top priority and not allowing those others to 'get under your skin' because that is negative forces at work.  Did you even think about you can have Joy and Happiness every single day? It is right there waiting for you to see it and feel it. 

Deuteronomy 30:16 NIV
For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
