I can’t. And though I am a songstress in my home, it is not what I am called to do. However, when I was younger I thought being a gospel singer was the best job in God’s kingdom and wanted nothing more than to kill a Lashun Pace song in front of a packed audience.
But as I got older, I came to the harsh realization that singing was not my calling. So I started asking God to show and prepare me for my purpose. And He assured me that He had something amazing waiting for me. I realized I had to stop chasing the wrong dream to walk into my purpose.
Bottom line: What’s for you is for you. It’s easy to get caught up in someone else’s gift and never discover your own. Don’t box yourself into a lifestyle that God hasn’t confirmed. And remember, take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).
Good scriptures to highlight:
Ephesians 3:20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
