"We all have different "kingdoms." Each of us has been led to a different destination, by a different path, journeying through unique circumstances to get to where we are today. Where you are right now - where He has you each moment - that is your kingdom. That very place is the piece of God's Kingdom that He has entrusted to you. Whether you believe your kingdom us substantial or completely irrelevant, it is still yours and it is still His."
She Reads Truth
Anyone else out there ever struggled with or questioned a place you've been in, or even the one that you are in currently? Because I definitely have, and even sometimes still do. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it is far too easy for us nowadays to become discontent in our spaces - our work, our homes, our relationships, even our own bodies - and that, my friends, is a slippery slope. With the rise of multiple social media platforms over the last few years, we have grown so accustomed to seeing highlight reel after highlight reel of other people's lives (think our feeds on Instagram, Facebook, etc.) that it can make certain aspects of our own lives seem boring or insignificant.
The thing is, who are we to determine what is better? To deem what is of more or less significance? Our perspective is so insanely limited in comparison to God's. We hardly even get to see a glimpse of all that He is able to see at any given time. After all, what we see play out throughout His Word remains true today: this story is not about us. From the days of Adam to now, it has always and will always be about Him: His renown, His power, His glory, and His name. And He is One who gives us the particular pieces and places that we find ourselves in. And because of that, we can rest assured knowing that nothing is in vain. Every part of our "kingdom" - our work, home, relationships, and bodies - are given to us by Him with intention and purpose and, most importantly, to be used for His glory.
