But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious, undeserved] grace [which makes us free of the guilt of sin and grants us eternal life].Acts 20:24
Not many can say these words of Paul’s and truly mean them. Jesus knows you, and you also know that you’re not here yet. You still struggle at times with who you are and who you wonder that you are supposed to be. You wonder if there’s more and if you’re missing something. Paul had an unmistakable defining moment in his life. Jesus met him there and completely changed his course of direction.
Not everyone is supposed to be like Paul, you were created different and placed in a different time. Each individual has a place designed specifically for them and the talents and abilities that Jesus has instilled in them. Keep diving deeper into God’s Word and keep growing. Your road doesn’t dead-end, so don’t be concerned with where Jesus is taking you.
Each step you have taken has already fulfilled My Purposes, sometimes you are unaware of the influence and impact you have on others who I have led across your path. Don’t compare yourself, but just be you. Take each day as it comes and walk with Jesus. One day you’ll be able to turn around and see just how far that you have come together. Until the, stay in God’s Word and take one step at a time.
