Each of us has lived a life that is very unique, and what we’ve heard, seen, and experienced throughout our lives has brought us to the point and place where we now reside. We are who we are because of all that’s transpired in our lives, and there is nothing we can do to make ourselves be someone other than who we are at this moment.
What we can do, is focus on God, and allow Him to use us in His plan, in spite of, or maybe because of who we are. God reaches each of us in a unique way, and will use our individual personalities and abilities to encourage others to understand His love and will for their lives.
As I stumbled and rumbled through life, I seldom had a clue where I was headed, and believe me, I’m just as shocked as anyone to find myself where I am, and doing what I do. I’ve come to realize though, all the things I did before—good or bad—were leading me to where I am.
And I’m sure glad to be here.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5
