3 Signs You’re Settling For Less Than God’s Best

[tps_header]God's best[/tps_header]

One of the biggest challenges in life is to make sure we are living out God’s will and not our own.

Even though sometimes we are content where we are, something just seems to be missing. You can’t pinpoint the problem , but it just doesn’t feel right.

Settling for less is not always a conscious or intentional choice.

Many people don’t even realize when they’ve settled.

The good news is… if you have, it’s not too late!

Here are 3 Signs You’re Settling For Less Than God’s Best…

1. God’s Best Won’t Bring Confusion

I remember when I started this blog, I was unemployed. Two days after the one year anniversary of The Praying Woman , I got an email from one of the jobs I had applied to 10 months earlier. The blog had just started to blossom. I had garnered a nice little following, but I was barely making ends meet financially.

I knew that taking the job would mean that I would not have the time to dedicate to this blog like I wanted. I was torn. I didn’t know what to do. Was this new job a blessing from God or a distraction from Satan? Hmmmm. I couldn’t tell right away. But it didn’t take me long to figure out that it was the latter.

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. (1 Corinthians 14:33)

God is not the author of confusion. When it’s truly God’s best, there will be a sense of calmness, relief, and peace. I’m not saying that everything will be peaches n’ cream or flow just like a fairytale. But I am saying that there will be no doubt which is God’s best and which is settling for less.

Dear Dreana, this message helped me deal with my own decision-making making which have been based on emotions and to feel included. Your sharing encourages me to follow in the perfect knowing that God is there, thankyou so much for sharing. Stay a blessing to all.


A much needed message because have been praying for a life partner and at my age (36) I know what I want especially now that I have rededicated my life to God but I keep meeting younger guys who like me because I look younger than my age and they are more sexually active which is not what I need right now so the back and forth conversations I have with them makes me feel bad but do I now compromise because of not wanting to be alone or having waited for so long? I feel guilty for saying “No”… Read more »

I thoroughly enjoyed this message! Thank you for sharing!
