So our future is about you. I had the honor the other day to sit and to watch as a trump presidency end and the Biden presidency began. Oh my, what a moment for our country. We sat as we want to president-elect, Biden. Give his presidency speech and we want is our new VP. Kamala Harris old took the stage. What a moment. There was so many emotions for me emotions that are just, I can't even begin to explain is Kamala. You took us on a journey to. I see you in a little bit about how she became about her father and her mother.
Look up. Different countries are Jamaica and India, and so she's the product of two special country's two special people. And now, her life has taken a special turn. Yes, she gets to serve serve in a bigger and greater way. And as I was sitting there watching, I begin to think about my beginning as a young girl, I to remember that I've been I started, I was birthed from a mother and a father for the two different countries. Yes, my father was from Cuba and my mother from Jamaica and I am to yes, a young girl filled with possibility and filled with potential. I've grown up in life. Just seeing life of a worldview of a future that is truly purposeful. And this is what brought me here today.
To you, on our flourishing Journey. Because, yes, our life is about our future. And so gen xers Millennials, and US, specially you. Whatever you are in the world, know that because you are listening today. You have a purposeful life. You were successfully designed for purpose and your capacity to achieve is immeasurable.
Without divine order in your life, you lose the ability to hear from just just here. Everything about US, Census is connected to our purpose, in our divine order in life. Everyone was created with the ability to inspire to motivate the guide to direct. And to listen, you are an overcomer with a divinely appointed purpose. And as you continue your purposeful work to develop a truly authentic relationship. Just know that you are prepared daily through the word, through the word of God, to fulfill your purpose.
Now this is a time to look forward with great. Hope and expectations. You can no longer look at life or your goal is something that is not obtainable. But as something that can be done. Yes, our presidential election against amps, the approval on the fact that we can do whatever it is. We were created to do, we were destined to do, it is our purpose and is the paintable and it can be done and successful. Life is a disciplined life. So we must exercise discipline in every area of Our Lives.
How do we become disciplined, well-disciplined? Comes from receiving instructions. The most credible tried and proven instructions over. The centuries of time are found in the word of God. From a young girl. I got, I gave my life to the Lord at the age of 13. I was young, but I knew that there was something bigger that I was birth to two, as a young girl. I will get up. And, you know, is, I'm looking out even over the mountains or just looking into the sunlight or whether I'm at the beach. I always use those moments as times of section. And when I close my eyes, I really could picture of me being in doing something much bigger and greater. I know, I would have
Trains, and I'm a dreamer. And I believe that God shows me things visions and dreams, and he literally, at a young age would show me me being in different places. Like I saw myself when I was in Jamaica, I saw myself in the United States. Yes. I mean, I saw me driving, and then I, when I made the turn back turn, I saw a post office. I saw a bank and I saw it to church, and do you not know that was a dream. I had as a young girl much many, many years later in life, as my mom and dad moved to the United States of America and begin our new life. I grew up. I went to school. I went to college and then I landed my first job. Then my second job working for the division.
Medical assistants in the United States. I had, you know, all through all my travels and everything. I ended up in North Carolina with my husband. And that was one of the jobs that I had. I remember driving to a location to meet with some Physicians with a hospital, the directors and meeting with various agencies. And I was, I was traveling, I didn't know where I was going. But then, and I was filled with a little bit of anxiety because, you know, this is my first time traveling that state, but I was following my navigation following directions, and but still a little apprehensive. I remember turning the corner and when I turn the corner, all of a sudden, you know, ran into this familiar moment. The dream that I had as a girl, I saw the bank, I saw the post office and I saw the church.
And I was like, oh my goodness, immediately. I knew where I was but, you know, because this was something again that God showed me as a young girl that, you know, his hand was on my life and that I had nothing to worry about that. He would show me where I was going even then because I knew that there was something bigger and something greater. So success in life is a disciplined of life. We must exercise discipline and every area of our life. So 1st, Kings 3. And 14 says, God will lengthen the Days of Our Lives. If we walk in his ways and keep his Commandments too, experienced success, this requires that you press through any life situations and circumstances. You're going to have those moments. You're going to have
These breaks in life, where you feel like you've been given a lemon. And I always say when you're giving a lemon in life. No matter what that bad taste is with bad experience. In battle or bad opportunity. You cut that lemon open squeezing and some water and some sugar and you make the best drink that lemonade, and enjoy your life. The pencil people are people, who are you think purposefully, you have a mission and assignment to do and you've got to be on purpose. It's okay. If you are on a path to discovering your, you know, who you are, that is a great exciting, place to be a place of Discovery if you don't know your purpose and if you don't know what your assigned to do, stick around continue this
Journey. Because I believe that, as you listen to the episodes, you will come into your own. You'll begin to get receive knowledge and instruction and you will understand exactly who you are. And what you are designed to do. You will find that wrapped up in, on the inside of you are great potential. To be discovered potential, that are literally going to shake your world and calls you to emerge out of challenges. Much stronger and ready to dominate in every place where your feet will take, you, you are more than you appear to be on the outside because on the inside you carry giant possibilities. The world is waiting to discover the possibilities that are on your fingertips. You are ready.
I do whatever it is that you were created to do your filled with giant possibilities.
Filled with possibilities and big super gigantic. I don't know. I'm just at a loss of words to really explain what's on the inside of a. You you have not even begin to scratch the surface of the greater purposes. They God has so carefully placed on the inside of you. So I want to encourage you today. Dream, big dream big, the world is waiting for you and God wants you to know this. He's painted the skies because the sky is the unending limit limit to what you can have. You must believe it. You must receive it because God is going to perform it in your life beginning today.
