Not All Heroes Wear Capes!

It’s been a crazy kind of year! Just when I think I‘ve reached the pinnacle of my purpose, I am reminded that I have more to give. There will always be a reason to pursue and apply my purpose in various contexts of my role as an educator. I've learned, wherever God leads, I will follow. It is His love for me that shines bright in my work and interactions with others. My willingness to trust Him in all things is what he requires of me, as He carefully orchestrates the details of my life and delivers on His promises in His timing.

"Wherever God leads, I will follow."

When I say yes to God‘s will, I experience freedom to be who He created me to be. It doesn’t matter how big or small my contributions are to the world around me. God sees my sacrifices, challenges, and commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. I used to think that purpose had to be accentuated with an explanation point. I thought that big bodacious acts were a result of a purpose driven life, something that I’d never amount to. Also, I have learned over the years that God has given us a measure of gifts and talents to serve for a specific purpose. If and when we compare ourselves to the likes of others, we lose focus and diminish the effectiveness of our contributions. It is a surefire way of canceling oneself from experiencing the fullness of God's blessings.
