Have you ever questioned your existence on this earth, or even entertained the thought that you have no skills, brilliance or whatever it takes to make an impact in this world? If you answered yes, you are not alone; I have been there, and I have great news for you!
Everyone was born fully equipped with an innate talent, which when pursued will take you into your designed purpose or destiny. In other words, all you need to be great, is within you. This talent, however, will not develop on its own; it must be nurtured and honed unto maturity. Your talent will then become the vehicle which propels you into your God-given purpose.
Some discover their talent from a very a tender age, some in their teens, some in early adulthood, and others in late adulthood. While discovering your talent is important, it is even more important to pursue your talent. A talent unpursued or undeveloped is a talent buried. Buried talent/s can lead to a life of frustration, unhappiness and unfulfillment.
You may have neglected your talent or calling in pursuit of something more lucrative, or simply chosen a path which was more accessible. The reason may even be totally irrelevant today. However, if you still get excited when you think about that dream; if you feel energized and motivated when you see yourself doing that thing (whatever it is), that means the passion is still there. Don’t give up on your purpose/your dream! Remember, it takes far less effort to hone your talent, than to learn other skills, because what you were born with, becomes natural to you. Take that leap of faith, fuel that fire inside and watch it burn.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
