You are where you are for a reason.
We don’t necessarily have to understand why we are where we are in life.
When I say that I mean, the Lord has placed us where He has placed us for purposes known to Him. It’s up to you to discover His will for you in His grand plan.
Maybe the place you’re at is luscious, or perhaps it’s unsavory. It doesn’t matter. The Lord has a reason for this.
If you live in a terrible location, filled with crime and sin, but you’re reading this post, have made it this far into my post, and you have been following my Instagram feed, there is a reason the Lord has you where He has you.
You have righteous desires. He has taken you to an area of His vineyard where He needs you to produce good and desirable fruit. You may be among the few people in your area to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Start seeing your area as an opportunity. The Lord saves his valiant ministers. So, go be valiant and harvest your area!
”For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul.” (D&C 4:4)
The Lord doesn’t want you to question His placement for you; He wants you to get work, and He will help you understand the ’WHY.’ We learn this by reading about the Lord and His servant in the vineyard.
”And it came to pass that the servant said unto his master: How comest thou hither to plant this tree, or this branch of the tree? For behold, it was the poorest spot in all the land of thy vineyard.
And the Lord of the vineyard said unto him: Counsel me not; I knew that it was a poor spot of ground; wherefore, I said unto thee, I have nourished it this long time, and thou beholdest that it hath brought forth much fruit.”
Trust in the Lord, hear Him, and go harvest your area!
