It's My Anniversary

Two years ago, I wrote this:
No one is you. No one can tell a story like you because they don't have your experiences, your perspectives, your anything. Your story matters.
And that's where the title came from too.
I matter and my story does too. It may not matter to a lot of people but that doesn't mean that I don't matter.
A year ago, (where does the time go, seriously) I shared this:
This is why I can't stay still. This is why I keep moving. This is probably why there's longing within your soul because you have an inkling that you can do so much more. And you can, through His strength that is readily available to you.
But you have to break that mindset that keeps you enslaved and replace it with truth. 
And tonight, I want to remind you of all this:

  • You are not random.
  • You are not by chance.
  • You are not convenient.
  • You are not just there.
  • You are purposeful.
  • You are chosen.
  • You are not an extra.
  • You are not chaos.
  • You are not taking up space.
  • You are not the constellation prize.
  • You are the prize.
You are a deliberate thought formed in our Creator's mind and He saw you were good. He knew everything about you from the beginning, how many times you would make mistakes, how many times you would turn away from Him, how you ultimately cost Him His only Son and not only did He think you were worth it, but He chose you for a purpose. He picked you and thought you were fitting to be His vessel for His purpose.

You are not a blip on the radar. You will be missed if you went missing. You are loved and looked after by the One who created everything around you.

Don't give up. 

You have so much riding on this one life. I know that sounds daunting but you're not alone. God is with you every step of the way, guiding you and providing for you. If you'll just press into Him, He'll make your paths straight.

But it starts with expanding your faith: you have to start believing in yourself; you have to believe in all He says you are, in all He says you can do.

Can you do that? Because once you do, then you can do anything. And trust me, the world needs who you are and what you can do.

We need you so please don't give up.
