For years in my life, my motivation to be the best drove me to succeed. Whether it was athletic endeavors or the corporate world, I wanted to be the best. However, after recommitting my life to Jesus, I've discovered a more significant purpose bigger than myself.
In the quiet moments in my room, God revealed His desire for me to share my testimony of faith. He wanted me to offer hope to the hurting, encouragement to the lost, and inspire people to draw nearer to Him.
I cannot express the joy that I woke up each morning excited to see what God has in store for me. How did He intend to use me for His glory?
The wonderful thing about God is that He is always faithful. Even when I fall short some days or get distracted from my purpose, He always inspires me with something to share.
I refuse to share a blog post or create an outline for the podcast without having inspiration from God's Word.
I encourage you to spend quality time reading and meditating on the truths from God's Word. Talk to Him. Listen for His leading, and He will never disappoint.
You, too, friend, can find your divine purpose that will change your life for the better. Seek God with all your heart!
The Furnace of Affliction
In that painful and isolated moment, God spoke to me. He revealed that His desire was not for me to live for myself or to accumulate wealth and things of no heavenly value but to live a life that glorifies Him—to share my testimony of faith with all who will listen (and even those who won’t). He saved me from eternal damnation, not so that I’d “stay out of hell,” but so that I’d help people know Him and inspire them to live for Christ.
