Life is a struggle. It can consume your soul, erase your identity, and leave you in an utter state of shock and awe. The journey of life is filled with uncertainties, which often brings pain, discouragement, and defeat.
People don’t submit requisitions to choose their parents, height, gender, color, intelligence, or location prior to their birth. Yet, these attributes provoke a certain response from society. How you deal with those responses will make all the difference in your journey. You are unique, unlike any other person. There’s no carbon copy of you. Knowing who you are is the key to peace in this life. Your purpose is concealed in who you are.
When you realize your life is set on course by God, the journey is fulfilling, the struggle is acceptable, and the reward is supernatural. Your purpose and mission gives you focus. Your character is formed.
I tussled with who society wanted me to be, until I woke up. My natural birth, like many others, placed me with little odds of achieving greatness in this present life. I was in the fog of life when Christ made me new.
If you hold on to God’s hand, he’ll pull you through any situation. He promises to go with you through the fire and the flood.
