Born For This

This week I will celebrate another birthday. Anyone who knows me intimately will tell you that I go hard always for my birthday. After all it is the day,  I was sent to Earth so that I might live, talk, and walk according to God's purpose and plan.

I haven't always accepted this truth but the last two years, nah few months have allowed me to experience a clarity of heart, mind and soul. This epiphany has pushed me closer to Christ and my dream both being used to encourage, uplift, motivate, and empower those I come in contact with daily. I want to serve in this capacity in order for lives to be changed & hearts to be healed because of God's love shining through me. Purpose. My destiny. My life's work.

To commemorate this new year of life, I wanted to reintroduce myself to the world, my blog readers, family, friends as well as those who have yet to discover who I am (you know those God ordained connections that are supposed to happen starting this year). #visionboard 

Habakkuk 2:2-4 (NKJV)
The Just Live by Faith
2 Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
4 “Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith.

The scripture reminds me that I can become what I was predestined to be when God himself handcrafted me in His own image. #thisisBibletoo I was born for this! What is "this'? A few things I am certain of that make up 'this' is 1. I am a great teacher; 2. I am a prayer warrior and 3. I have a heart for young people despite their flaws. #theywiilneverwakeupperfect

If you aren't sure of your place in the world and what you were born for, I hope this post encourages you to seek Jesus. Allow Him to reveal your purpose and the plan He has already established for your life. He knows how to get you from your beginning to the end. He is the only one who can make that dash in between your birthday and your death date significant.

You look lovely! I've always admired not only your style, but your strong faith. It's so nice to follow and interact (via social media) with like minded Christian women; it's inspiring and motivating. You are indeed destined for greatness. I wish you a happy birthday and may God continue to use you. Keep shining, girl...XO!

Thank you Whitney! Like you I'm glad there are others living out loud for Jesus. Thanks for the birthday wish, kind words and encouragement. In the blogging community it is so needed. I'll return back here whenever I feel myself taking my eyes of the true prize. Blessings.
