I have met and found wisdom in more than my fair share of extraordinary people! I am so grateful God has found use and purpose for me in any capacity and desired to teach me and impart knowledge and said wisdom from such extraordinary world changers!
I could be in a completely different place in life or possible not presently living had it not even for giving and loving God fearing people in my path helping guide me. To you I tip my hat with not only gratitude but respect and honor! You know who you are!
I was on a track of destruction before Jesus found me and leaving a wake of pain in my path. I made a decision to be more… More than even those around me expected of my life. Many told me I would be and do nothing of any significance but I say I refuse to be normal! Being Normal is for the weak and afraid but striving to be extraordinary is for the courageous and for those dreamers of dreams and makers of music!
I have been unwanted and cast aside I have been used and thrown away by people claiming to be loved ones but who hasn’t? I am talking strictly people at this point! God brings all good things but people have free will. Even those considering themselves followers of Christ but have not seen His face been in His face can destroy others and do that very thing! But being an extraordinary person means much more than living the American dream or the every day, day-to-day living….
Loving to the point of laying your life down
Giving at your own expense
Patience in the waiting place
Gentleness kindness discipline and self control
I desire to always be poured into so I may in return pour all I have out, to die empty and used up! I pray I never find myself stagnant but always seeking a challenge to grow and evoke better!
Why? Why strive so hard when in the end it all goes away…
Why? Because of that ONE! That one no one else could reach but I can!
The word says that not one should perish so I do my part to find that one!
We do not know how many will enter the kingdom behind our yes ad we do not know how many are lost behind out no!
I was behind someone yes… If that someone had said no I could have been lost forever… I am grateful!
But there’s more….
We are to give and give and give and in our humility do not be to pridefully humble that we are not able to receive as well! We are not called to be takers by any means but pour out all we are given for the kingdoms cause but remember someone may be learning and growing by giving into our lives!
I have always cherished having a mentor and someone to find value in my life with a desire to teach and challenge me. I am at a place in my life currently I have never been before, without a mentor. It’s a very vulnerable place that I don’t really like but I know God is teaching me and Holy Spirit is guiding me and seasons are just that seasons that change quickly.
In 2 Timothy 1:1-8 we see Paul’s mentoring of young Timothy. Paul thanks God for Timothy (3a), he prays for Timothy each day (3b), he longs to be with him (4), he is intimately familiar with Timothy’s life and family (5), and he speaks encouragement and direction into Timothy’s life (6-8).
We are to continually watch over each other in love! It is essential that mentors be loving enough to correct (Proverbs 27:5-6) and caring enough to affirm (Hebrews 10:24). I know this generation and our modern lifestyle has created a people without time to spare but people are worth our effort and time! People are worth schedule stoppers as e-break pullers!
We were made to be relational. Reach out love someone give to them and treat them with kindness. Change lives because everyone has the power and ability to be world changers. Stop spreading hate and find a way to give back.
