Hey there, world changer!
You were created to dream of your future and the unique purpose that God has placed on your life. It is a beautiful thing.
I listened to a message from Shawn Bolz recently and he shared a story that impacted me deeply. He was visiting Hawaii and was his way to grab a sandwich at Subway late at night and on his walk, he crossed a street corner of drug dealers and prostitutes. A young man asked if he could sell him a 16-year-old girl on the street corner and Shawn was deeply troubled by this. He walked over to her and asked if he could pray for her. While praying, he asked God to reveal his unique purpose for her life and asked her to envision the happiest version of herself. As he prayed, she blurted out that she saw herself as a chef. Long story short, within six months of that encounter, the girl began working at her uncle’s restaurant and eventually became a restaurant owner working full time in the kitchen.
What stuck out to me in this story was that in a matter of minutes, God took a girl without hope, no future, selling herself on a street corner and gave her purpose and meaning in life. You see, that’s what God does. He intersects into our broken lives and changes everything. I’ve been working in homeless ministry for four years now and I’ve personally seen it over and over and over again.
Acts 2:17 says, “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”
Right here, right now, close your eyes and ask God to give you a vision of His perfect, unique purpose for your life. Ask God to reveal to you the happiest version of yourself and who you were created to be. What do you see?
