I recently had my hopes and dreams crushed unknowingly by someone I look up to. When I started blogging I did it because I wanted to make a difference out there, even if I just touched one person’s life I was happy. I have never written a blog to float my own boat or to get gratification in anyway whatsoever. I do what I do to glorify the Name of my Father in heaven. I still just want to make a difference out there!!!
For weeks now, I have been miserable. I have been down and out, moping around. Nothing seems to make me smile anymore. I have been meaning to post a blog but I have had no inspiration…whatsoever. I can blame it on life or that person that I look up to; but it’s just me. I’m miserable because I’m not doing what I have been called to do because I care too much of what other people think of me. God put one obstacle in my path that was meant to help me overcome my fears and I failed it horribly. The wonderful thing about Our Father is that He is always guiding us, even when we don’t feel it, He is there!!!
I was reached today, God put something in my path that changed my outlook on how I see things. Today I watched a movie called Patch Adams, I do recommend everyone I know and don’t know to watch it. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world.
I learnt that’s its ok to do things differently. Its ok not to be like the rest of the world or people in the same walk of life you are journeying in. Its ok to think outside of the box and do things the way you feel led to do. Its also ok if not everyone gets it, it’s ok if they come up against you and make you feel like you are messing up in your life, like you are not meant to do what you are doing. God put blogging on my heart for a reason. When I was a child I used to love reading and writing… I still do. Its what’s in my soul, it’s what God has given me. It’s my gift from God. Others have their God given gifts. My gift is not perfect and I make so many mistakes everyday but that’s ok because I’m learning each day and the best thing is God is helping me and guiding me each step.
I’ve learnt that not everything is as it seems, we all have different opinions about everything in life so why can’t we have different ways of reaching the lost and the hurt and the broken? Why must certain things be done according to the book, why can’t we do things with love and the hope of reaching a lost soul? 5+4=9 but so does 4+5 and 6+3 and 3+3+3 and 5+3+1 and 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1.
This is probably the shortest blog I have ever done but that’s ok because its exactly what God has placed on my heart.
I want to leave you with this. Do what God has placed on your heart with all your heart, even if it seems unorthodox to others, that’s ok, they will get it one day!!
It’s okay to stand out, like the popular quote says, from Dr. Seuss “Why fit in when you where born to stand out.”
“Do everything with so much love in your heart that you would never want to do it any other way.”
“Always try to leave people better than you found them…”
Lastly a quote from Patch Adams himself… “See what no one else sees. See what everyone chooses not to see…”
Also…do what no one else does, do what everyone else chooses not to do…with all the love you have and glorify Our Father in heaven.
