We are so excited to welcome renown radio personality Brandi Lanai to our
weekly blogs. This is a God wink for sure, and maybe some day we’ll be
broadcasting live to share how it all came to be, but in the meantime, enjoy
what she shares today, Faith-Filled Friday with Brandi Lanai.
Earlier today I was part of a women’s conference on CONFIDENCE. Something that the
keynote speaker said stuck out to me. She said, “confidence is not about a person, it’s
about a purpose”. So often we allow fear to keep us from pursuing our goals and
dreams because we’re focused on ourselves or, on what others may say or think
instead of focusing on the purpose.
God gives each of us gifts, talents, and skills, not just to lift ourselves, but to be a
blessing to others. That is the purpose. When we allow fear or intimidation or lack of
confidence to hold us back, we’ve lost sight of the purpose. The purpose of your vision,
the purpose of that business you’ve always wanted to start or that dream you can’t
shake, is ultimately to bring joy to someone else’s life, it’s to encourage or inspire them
in some way, it’s to impact their lives for the better.
So when we focus on ourselves, our doubts, our fears, our insecurities, we lose sight of
the reason God gave us our unique skill or talent in the first place… to be a blessing to
others. We’re not supposed to keep those gifts for ourselves, we’ve been called to give
those gifts away. So whatever it is you’ve been holding back, remember the PURPOSE
and that will give you the confidence to achieve anything.
“Each day is a gift God has given us, and each moment of our day is in HIS hands.”
