Audrey Roloff is a woman of very strong conviction.
She's been very open about her faith and her devotion from family from the moment she came into our lives as a cast member on Little People, Big World.
She and husband Jeremy are no longer cast members on this TLC series, having announced their departure in July.
That said... Audrey is still around, still sharing posts on Instagram and still espousing her religion.
Below, for example, Roloff delves into her belief in God and into how this Higher Power has taught her a number of life lessons.
Audrey's Opening Statement
"Your life has PURPOSE. Whether you can clearly define that purpose or not, God wants to purpose MORE out of your life RIGHT NOW," Roloff wrote to open this lengthy message. "Not once you graduate, not once you’re married, not once you’re a mom, not once you get this job or move to that city. No."
What Does God Want?
"He wants to purpose more out of your seemingly futile daily tasks, your to-do-lists, your surface level conversations, and your day-to-day. He created you for so much MORE than just living through moments."
What Else, Audrey?
"He wants to fulfill His purposes through every part of your life – the big moments and the small moments, the celebratory moments and the heartbreaking moments."
How Can One Figure All This Out?
Writes Audrey, acknowledging this major challege: "But discovering God’s purpose for your life can seem daunting... maybe you don’t know for certain what God has purposed you to do, or who He is purposing you to be."
It Can Be So Hard to Figure It All Out
And there can be so many reasons to be confused, as Audrey also acknowledges: "Maybe you’re trying to figure it out, but you’re just not sure yet. Maybe you thought you knew, but then some life circumstance changed your course."
Also, Along These Lines...
"Or maybe you have been so focused and determined in what you thought was your purpose, but now you feel like giving up because it’s still not bearing any fruit. Girl, I get you."
How Has Audrey Navigated Through Life?
"Here are a few encouraging truths that continue to help me," she wrote in her post, prior to elucidating seven life lessons/teaching from God. Scroll down for each one...
This is at the beginningof Audrey's list: "God’s purposes will prevail even when your plans fail."
They Just Woke Up!
"We woke up like this." So Audrey Roloff wrote as a caption to this photo of herself, her husband and their child.
"His purpose for you might change. Be willing to go wherever He leads."
"God can fulfill magnificent purposes through our menial tasks done in faith."
"Sometimes God doesn’t reveal His purposes to us in order to keep us humble."
"Be patient and faithful. God will reveal His purpose for you in His perfect timing."
"What God is doing in you, through you, and through your circumstances, has an eternal purpose."
“I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” - Job 42:2 write that one on a bathroom mirror sticky note and read it or load every morning.
