God keeps me going. Sounds cliche but seriously if my life is going to be cliche, I would rather it was with God. On those days I feel like giving up, I always struggle in the midst of doubt and I manage to say “help me Lord”. Guess what? It always works better than magic.
Purpose. Since I found purpose in God, it’s been awesome. When I feel down, I remember my deal with God, when fear creeps in, I remember my deal with God, when people talk me down, I remember my deal with God, when I ain’t got no money, I remember my deal with God. My Purpose is My Security!
My failures and mistakes! Sincerely, I have failed a lot… One too many times and I’ve made stupid, stupid mistakes (sigh!) but the thing I’ve realised about them is that once I get beyond that stage, everything is always fine. From my experiences, I’ve learnt that my failures make me wiser and my mistakes make me stronger, so these days, I just look forward to them. The fact that I survived my past means nothing is insurmountable.
