I’ve rejected titles for some time now. You know what I’m talking about.
THEM: “So, tell me about yourself.”
YOU: “I’m an accountant (or a doctor, mechanic, purchasing agent, dentist, lawyer, pastor, marketer, etc.).”
No you’re not! Those are all descriptions of what you do…not who you are.
I believe that God placed His incredible thumbprint on each and every one of us. We carry His divine design, His stuff of destiny, His DNA.
When we understand who we are and why we are here on this earth we begin to access this stuff of destiny; we get it, the shoe drops and we understand. We may not understand the WHAT yet…but we definitely know the WHY.
I believe our destiny is like our flavor. It’s the seasoning we carry into any situation or circumstance. Just like eggs need salt and chili needs pepper, there are places out there that need the seasoning that is you.
I’m sure you’ve seen this before. There are definitely specific people you want to invite to your party because they’re so full of life. There are people you want to travel with because they’re so fun. There are people you seek out when you’re hurting because they’re so sensitive.
There are churches and communities and schools and neighborhoods that need what you, and only you can give. You are the answer to someone’s prayer.
It’s not about what you do. It’s about who you are. And we need you to be who you were created to be.
