HAPPY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Greatness is a potential that lies in all of us. The Creator of the Universe placed it there. But many of us go through life never tapping in to that potential that is meant to catapult us to extraordinary heights--whether it be in our careers, our businesses, or our dreams and aspirations as artists and creators of beautiful things. I have found that the way to really comprehend who it is you were meant to be in this life, ergo your purpose, is to ask and seek your answer from the ONE who put the greatness inside you. God has a plan for all of His children. One child in particular who achieved his purpose in life was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Here was a man who realized that he was destined for Greatness, not in an arrogant sense, believing himself to be better than anyone else. It was in the sense that he knew that God had a plan for him and he spent his life acting on that God-given plan to bring justice to all people on a global level. And though his life was cut tragically short, I think it's safe to say that Dr. King certainly accomplished more in his short 39 years than many of us would given 3 times that long.
So let's take up the helm and strive to find our true purpose in this life. Let's ask the questions, what has God put forth in my destiny? How can God impact the world through me? What can I do to keep the Dream alive? Who can I love on today? How can I give someone else hope in what seems like a hopeless situation? Seeking your real purpose in life can be kind of scary, simply because we have no idea what the journey to our purpose entails. But if God gave you the vision, be sure that HE will make the provision. It is up to us to ask the right questions and make the effort.
CELEBRATE GREATNESS TODAY!
