Purpose + platform have been two words on my mind the past few days. God has given us all a unique platform through which He will accomplish His purpose in us. Something entirely different than everyone else. We get so caught up in worrying about our platform that we miss our purpose. We compare our platform (number of followers, page views, job position, gifts, talents) to so many other people's, when we are called to pursue a purpose. God has given you every single thing you need to accomplish His purpose for you in this life. But this purpose will not be accomplished through a platform that is like anyone else's. It will look entirely different. The platform will follow as an overflow of the passion inside your heart, when you discover who He has made you to be. Don't waste more of your time in self-pity, always wishing your life could look different. Embrace the platform He has put before you today. Let His purpose for your life guide you. And never de-value who you are because your platform is a different size than someone else's. We are distorting the purpose God has for each of our lives by telling Him our platforms should look different.
Quit comparing your platform........Start pursuing your purpose.
