Be Authentic

Lately I find myself feeling unworthy and in a negative and low mindset about what I can do. I was going through imposter syndrome. I find myself asking, “Am I doing what I’m truly passionate about” or “Is this my purpose”.

Needless to say… but this was a fruitless exercise. It drained so much energy and faith out of me. I had to remind myself of God’s promises and know that I was fearfully and wonderfully made by Him. He set an authentic path for me already. I needed to meditate on this and trust that I was presently doing what I was supposed to do. This is my mantra –

“I am presently where God wants me to be.”

Most importantly I reflected on my life and was content that every single one of my accomplishments could not have been done on my own. It truly took a village. I reflected on all of the souls that touched me along the way. Some of them were nameless and faceless in my mind. Truly so because I never put a face to the people who gave me a government scholarship for my law degree. Nonetheless, they are important and apart of the bigger picture.

The fact of the matter is… I cannot do anything without God! He is the orchestrator of my life. My plans and hard work is truly meaningless without His favour on my life. His grace towards me makes me sufficient.

Neither does God make mistakes. Humans do. That’s why we need him. We need to take action and find the authentic path that God created for us to be on and let Him do the rest.
