There was a time during my college years where I had isolated myself from everyone. I was around people all the time, friends even, but I had shut myself off from engaging on a real level with them because of an unhealthy relationship I was in. A relationship the Lord made very clear to me from the beginning He didn't want me in. I chose my own independent way and it led to death. I thought the only way out of my self dug hole was to die. But God stepped in and saved me from myself. He opened my eyes to the mission He gave me of making disciples and put opportunities in front of me to live it out. I took little steps with my mustard seed of faith and God stepped in to show Himself awesome. He let me see many girls surrender their life to Him and helped me lead my first ever Bible study. I saw these girls hearts and lives change as the Holy Spirit worked inside them. I began living as though God, and making Him known, was my purpose in life and it gave me reason to not give up on life.
God has given you purpose and a very specific mission.
Are you living it?
