Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Since the beginning of my birth, it seemed as if the odds were against me. From being born with cleft lip and palate, microtia, other facial deformities, and heart issues. Well, for a while I thought so too, and the reason I thought so is that I allowed others to determine the purpose for my life. I allowed others to sell me short of what I was capable of because of my shortcomings, and as I got older I realized how foolish of me it was to give another human being the power to do so. I started to look at my life, and what I have been through and I said to myself “I have been through all of these things and I am still here, breathing, and alive so I obviously have a purpose in this life. So, from that point on, I took the upper hand of the things that made me sad about my life I started seeing the positive and embracing the things that were happening. This allowed me to appreciate life more and understand that no matter what people said I was made in God’s image and he is the only one who determines the purpose set for my life. For a while, I ran from what I feel was my calling, because I was scared, but If we learned anything from Jonah we can’t run or hide from God’s will. I had to realize that I couldn’t keep running away, which transpired into this blog, and also my podcast. I want to be an inspiration to the youth, and others. I hope someone who is reading this that is struggling with life, who feels that they lack purpose will find a sense of comfort, I want to let you know right now that you do have a purpose the enemy doesn’t want to fulfill your purpose but he is a liar you will succeed, you will overcome trials and tribulations, and you will prosper. Thank you for reading. May God bless you, and may your hearts be healed.
