Amazing how the world defines success as climbing up. There are many articles on statistics in one area or another of how to be successful. In many cases you will see that of people who have a career (making the bucks) i.e Executives in all categories may have inherited their wealth some may have gotten this success from a good education while some may have had mentors or some who have been in the right place at the right time. In essence someone who is successful has either come from humble beginnings or some by any means necessary to accomplished success in which the world sees. There are a lot books on the market as well how someone may have come from the bottom with humble beginnings and climb their way up the ladder. There is also another side that many of us don’t know sometimes the struggle or maybe the hard work they put in to climb this latter in what we see as successful. Ironically, this brings me to my perspective for 2018. I’ve decided that not to make promises or resolutions for what I could remember I always in one way or another would do every New Year. But this year I believe for the first time in my life I will knowingly wait and let God tell me what I need to do for this new year.
For years, I’ve been told to write it down. I have always been afraid of this gift that God has given me. I’ve always asked the question “Why Me Lord” At an early age I have known that there was something peculiar about me. I can remember now profound it was for me to discover the verse I Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: I mean I owned this verse it explain to my understanding that this is how God sees me and this is why folks would look at me sometimes with envy sometimes with love. It’s not my fault or my doing when I receive favor and I seemed to always jump back when things don’t go well in my life. Out of all the siblings in my family I was the different one. Always and even today my siblings when they look at me there is always this look that they give me that there is something special about me (with Love) This is who we are in 1 Peter 2:9; that’s you too.
