Reflection brings a lot of clarity. When we are young, we strive to follow a dream when we are older; we surrender to our calling. I remember when I was young, I wanted to be a VJ on MTV. I am glad that dream never happened; MTV is crap TV now.
I choose to accept my calling and own it. A calling is never easy; a person questions if they are right for it. There have been signs that confirm that I will be successful at my calling. Some play the part; I live it.
We all have a calling; some accept it, and others don’t. For some, there are various reasons why people do not accept their calling because they fear what others think. They fear their past even though it’s over. What helps me is knowing that God forgives, and He heals. We all have a past, and many are part of our testimonies. Why??? Because we are no longer the person who we used to be. We have grown, and we are set apart from our old selves. People who remind us of our past we have to ignore, forgive, and place them into God’s Hands.
The most prominent reflection has an epiphany in knowing that we are set free from our pasts, and God can indeed use us!!! Hallelujah!!!
Revelation 12:11 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.
