Finding Your Purpose Is Often Not How You Planned It

On so many days I struggle with myself, wondering why I am called to write. Thoughts of doubt creep in when I see how many people God has given the gift of making their thoughts come alive on paper.

Yesterday, I had a conversation with a friend that meant so much to me. I was told that my book had touched a young child’s life, but also had an impact on his mom. It was amazing to hear that my book has a powerful message for families that displays moral value. Even if I have touched one life, it is worth it all!

Today I woke up with a renewed sense of vision and passion for my pursuit. On a daily basis, I have found the strength and courage needed to continue on, despite the incredible challenges of wavering creativity and self doubt.

If God has given you a dream, embrace it and tackle it with persistence. I can promise you it will never turn out the way you had planned, but His unique work will be accomplished through you and around you.
