You Have A Purpose,
An Important Part To Play On This Planet.
There is something for you to do that only you can do; and if you don’t do it, it will never get done. Your unique contribution matters—and it matters if you quit!
Your destiny may be tied to loving and believing in someone when they can’t love or believe in themselves. It matters if you quit! Your destiny may involve consistent and persistent parenting for a child who struggles to learn. It matters if you quit! Your destiny may require you to build, write, or create something tangible to share with this world. It matters if you quit! Your destiny may be a discovery that literally saves lives or may involve a hug to be given or a note to be written that makes another feel life is worth living. It matters if you quit! Your destiny may be one of persevering in prayer for someone’s safety, salvation or healing. It matters if you quit!
You being you matters. Much is depending upon you having the courage to be you. Quitting is not an option.
“I would literally be dead if you had quit or said no. Thank you for having the courage to be you.”
My adoptive daughters have spoken those words to me on numerous occasions since I met them five years ago; both had pasts that involved extreme sexual abuse and exploitation. Loving them and calling them family was a part of my destiny. It was difficult but quitting was never an option.
When I began my journey of purpose I never imagined or contemplated what would have been at stake had I settled for less than I was created.
Now I do. After hearing my daughter’s story, now I do.
