"My purpose shall stand, and I will fulfill my intention." Isaiah 46:10

Why are you here?

Have you ever wondered why you are here on earth, or what your purpose is? I know many people who never even entertained that thought as they are really into enjoying their life and the pleasures of life around them.

Personally I believe God created each of us for a purpose. In this lifetime it is our goal to find things that fulfill the purpose of our being. As we are knitted together in our mother's womb, God has put together the genetics that are required for us to live this life. There is a wide variety of personalities in our one family alone. Some recognizable traits are there and others are not.

Being in the right place at the right time will result in everything falling together as it is meant to be. Our talents and contributions will immediately begin filling a need for others and we will be gifted back ten fold for our giving out.

It is what I call "The Perfect Fit."

I ordered some custom made jeans online for "the perfect fit." They arrived and the hips and legs are perfect, but they are slightly short (despite my measuring). When you order these custom, you are so careful to measure. I know now to add an inch to the length. I should have known when they said NO INSEAM measurements that I would miss it. My inseam is 36 inches. They have you measure from your waist to the floor...which is what I did, but my jeans are a tiny bit too short. Everything else is sooo perfect with the jeans. Choosing my own style and they fit around my hips and legs like they were custom made for the perfect fit! They were! Why did I do this? It was to have jeans that I could wear RIGHT NOW... the Perfect Fit.

Are you doing a job that is a perfect fit for you? Are you involved in life with things that are a perfect fit for you? If not it is time to pray and make some heartfelt changes.



"You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother." Psalm 139:13

Hi Laurie, The horse does stand proud! Very nice painting. I saw your paintings in person at the Dutch Art Gallery on Friday - I love your works!
Right now there are things in my life that are a perfect fit as are things that are just a little short like your jeans - but I'm sure I will find a way to either change it or learn to deal with it.

"The Perfect Fit" - a timely message for me as I do exactly that! I'm looking for what is the perfect fit for me in my art, my ministry, my life! Thank you for reminding me to seek God to be my tailor and help me find the perfect fit for me!
