The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

Purpose

FAIR WARNING: THIS IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN MY NORMAL POSTS!

Every once in a while I hear or see something that really moves me. Often, I don’t know why. In some way I must relate to what I hear or see and it touches me deeply and inspires me greatly. Today, I heard a clip on the radio which did just that. Her name is Gianna Jessen and she is an abortion survivor.  Until today, I didn’t know there was such a thing. In this clip she is giving  a speech in Australia.

Surviving an abortion is not what inspired me. That was God’s doing, not hers. What inspired me is that she knows that God has a purpose for her life and she is willing to be hated, and I mean hated, to fulfill her purpose. That is courage that I can only pray to strive for. She unabashedly, although clumsily at times, proclaims her faith through her weakness and that inspires me. If you get one thing out of this video I hope it is that God has a purpose for you life, and he has a purpose for my life.

I believe I have fulfilled a small part of that and it is time to start working towards the finish. I don’t know yet what that will be, but I am excited to find out. Because I know if I find it and if I walk it, my life will only be fuller and stronger, and that will in turn do affect my family the same way. Perhaps I will be the only one that feels this way; perhaps this is old news, it may even be too over-the-top for most. But I felt as if I had a duty to share this and I hope that you too can find a nugget of inspiration from it.
