"Shall I not drink from the cup the Father has given me?"
There is something very specific God has put you on this earth to do. He has equipped each and every one of us to do a special job for the kingdom. We are being trained with the skills and tools necessary to accomplish that purpose for which God has fashioned us.
Every trial will strengthen you for the task at hand, and what you have always considered as your weaknesses are actually your greatest assets to accomplish God's mission. God made no mistake in your life. Everything you've been through, all the blood, sweat, and tears, are for this moment now. Do not let it pass you by. It is for you to decide each and every moment if you love life or fear it. I tell you the truth, there is no future for the one who doesn't move forward out of fear.
God has not abandoned you to figure out life by yourself. He is always already guiding those who trust his guidance. If you are lost and do not know where else to go, if you are stuck or just plain scared of moving forward because of fears from the past, God is with you and has been from the start. You are not forgotten.
The Father has given you a cup. Will you drink from it?
