I was reading a document created by a very dear friend yesterday and I was so blessed by one sentence in particular, which to me outlined the very foundation of living on purpose…
“Can an acorn become a rose? A butterfly a sparrow? You cannot be anything you want to be, but you can be everything God wants you to be.”
Don’t let people try to take away your uniqueness by telling you that you can choose to be who or what you want to be!
You can choose if you like, but if you make a bad choice it will feel like wearing someone elses jacket – it just won’t fit! And, even if it does, you’ll know it’s not yours – you’ll soon have to give it back!
God chose you for a purpose before the world ever began and I know from experience, it’s easier and more enjoyable to walk in the plan and path He has set for you. It is only when you’re being YOU that you can release your full potential and enjoy the true prosperity in every area of your life that God designed for you to enjoy.
The Amplified Version of Romans 8:28 says…
“We are assured and know that [God being partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.”
If you feel that you’re walking on the wrong path today, ask God for direction. The direction He shows you might even feel uncomfortable but there are steps to every plan and the beginning is often filled with uncertainty, but when you’ve reached that place when you’re doing what you love, when your heart’s desires are being met, it is as the Bible says “like a tree of life.”
