So many of us spend a lifetime trying to be someone we aren't to please people that don't really matter.
We were all created with specific gifts/talents/passions to build each other up, make God known, and live with love & joy.
When we allow God to direct our paths, we quickly achieve this; however, keep in mind that the enemy will try to use what God created in us for his own wicked benefit. One of the reasons I am so grateful for the Holy Spirit and its conviction-God will always give us a nudge when we start to get off course.
Know God, Know Yourself.
