Nobody Else Can Do What I Want You To Do. That’s Why I Created You

Perhaps you are growing weary as the person who everyone looks to for encouragement or a kind word. I know I’ve certainly seen those days but here’s what I know. Only you can be you. I had the privilege of speaking to a friend who is gifted in hospitality but over the years she had grown tired for various reasons. Along with that she became a little unhappy and couldn’t figure out entirely what the source of it was. After honest soul-searching she discovered that it was in part due to not doing what it is God designed her to do. She shared with me that by giving in to those feelings of weariness she realized that she was punishing herself.

I hadn’t thought about it that way but that is so true. That spoke to me because I am quick to offer a word of inspiration as often as I can but I will admit that sometimes it doesn’t always make its way to my door exactly when I need it, it takes its sweet time but it does come. It was comforting to hear that someone else experiences the same thing I do because we often feel like we are on a deserted island but that’s not true. So I too have decided not to punish myself and continue to offer as much encouragement and kindness as I can as often as I can because that’s how God created me. There’s a Tramaine Hawkins song where she sings “nobody else can do what I want you to do that’s why I created you.” That reigns true for both you and I. Continue to do you!
