What’s motivating and driving you everyday? Many of us don’t know. We’re living our day to day lives stuck on auto-pilot. We’re letting other things control us. Why? I believe it’s because most of us have lost hope, lost ourselves, and don’t believe we have any power to do anything different. This is why most of us just coast. We don’t stand out or blend in we’re just there. If this is you let me ask you this… Do you think you were born to be unhappy, in constant sorrow, coasting, then just to die? No! No one was born with that destiny, however that will be the destiny of most. Most of us will let having too much fun and other circumstances stop us and get in the way of our true destiny.
Everyone is born with the ability to make an impact. We all contribute to society in some way. There are billions and billions of people on earth, but there’s not another you. Isn’t that crazy?! Only you can do what you were put here to do. So now the question is do you know what you were born to do? Our sole purpose is to help others with our gift. The gift that was given to us by God. Trust me when I say you have something that someone else needs and vice versa. Figure out what that is and go share it. This doesn’t mean your life will be all rainbows and butterflies from here on out, but it does mean it will be worth it.
Sometimes in life you have to endure some pain for the overall good. Let me put this in perspective. Jesus! He knew what he had to do and what had to be done. He had to be crucified in order to save us all and he allowed it, because of his love for us. He endured the pain so that we may have everlasting life. This is exactly why you have to remind yourself that it’s not about you, when we suffer and go through things we don’t understand. No one knows better for you than God, and he intends to get work done through you.
For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord,” plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
