FUEL Devotions: Weekly Theme – Becoming who God says you are
Hi! I’m Susan and I’ll be bringing you your devotions for the week. I’m what some of you might call ‘old’. (But I wish you wouldn’t). Instead of telling you about what I spend my time doing these days (momming and such) I thought I’d tell you a little about when I was your age, and introduce you to our topic for the week.
I grew up in the church, and was active in my church youth group. And even though I managed to make some pretty stupid choices and do some pretty dumb stuff, I also continued to believe that God had a plan for my life.
Trying to figure that out, I travelled to Mexico with a short term mission team 4 summers to teach Bible schools, and decided to attend Atlanta Bible College after I graduated. I knew God had something for me, and I was doing everything I could to run around and try to find it.
Maybe you’ve felt that way before. Or maybe you’ve wondered if God really does even have a purpose for your life.
I wish I could tell you that reading the devotions here for the next week will reveal to you everything God has for your future. Unfortunately, that’s not the way God works. He typically just reveals the next step on the path.
So that is what I’ll be praying for you this week. That He will show you the next step in whatever area you are seeking His will for your life. He is a good God.
We’re not going to be reading in just one book this week. But I will give you one verse to commit to memory:
2 Peter 1:3
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
