ALL ABOUT DESIGN!!!!

Ephesians 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Design is very important in the way we decide to walk about to and fro in this world.  We live in a world full of influences to be like this person or that person.  We are all truly unique.  God is our Creator and He knows what kind of life we were designed to live and how we were designed to go about our business in this world.  I believe there are many occasions where some of us fight against our unique designs.  As women we feel pressure to conform in so many different ways.  God has designed an amazing role for women to play in this story of life.  It is diverse and multi-faceted.  However, if you start adding the "worlds" pressures to conform along with your god-given roles it can easily be overwhelming.  I think one of the most important pieces of information one can know about oneself is what your unique Godly design is and how it ties into the different aspects of your life.  We have a purpose and we are to fulfill it in every aspect about the way we live our lives.  Our children, have a unique design and I believe it's important as a parent to be tuned into that, so you can make the decisions for your child that are geared towards their design.  It's not always easy, but through prayer God can show you.  I know God has shown Reggie and I some things concerning Noah's design.  Noah is busy, constructive, and high energy.  She loves to learn new things.  She seems to enjoy learning things that are going to empower her.  She loves learning about God and she loves learning the skills that will be necessary for her to read and write.  She enjoys interaction with others.  She is highly interactive and socially mature.  We try to make decisions for her that are geared toward these things.  I pray that God continues to not only guide me in making the right decisions for Noah based on her purpose and design but also for myself based on my purpose and design.  He designed us with purpose in mind but only He can show us what that is.
