“Why do you fight to fit in when you were created to stand out?” ~Dr. Seuss
We were created by God just the way we are — on purpose.
Designed by God for the good of our works. God has a plan and a purpose for our lives. Find your purpose and make your purpose meaningful to others.
Purposeful living begins when you find Jesus. Know and love Jesus. Love and treat others just as Jesus would.
It is easier for others to see the impact God can have in your life when you have a visible physical impairment. However, it is equally, if not more important, to tell and show others how God can and will positively change your life when your illness and/or impairment is invisible to the rest of world.
Just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Just because you don’t understand something, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Just because you don’t believe something, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
“I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I cannot feel it. I believe in God even when He is silent.” ~unknown

When you have a mental illness or other invisible illnesses, your testimony is is not seen or easily understood. Explain how God changed your life. Strive to tell your story more fully and completely. Just make sure you tell your story.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. ~Maya Angelou
Use your story to move people. Give people hope and encouragement by sharing your story. Figure out how you are uniquely made and use your differences to change the world.
Please watch the following video of this beautiful and blessed man’s testimony and journey. He is making a positive difference in the lives of many, in spite of his differences and because of his differences.
God made this young man uniquely and beautifully different on purpose — to give Him a unique and valuable purpose to many others.
As I watched the video of this amazing young man’s journey, it made me smile and cry happy tears of joy. I hope this video inspires you and touches your heart as much as it touched mine.
