Living on Purpose

Cynthia Banks
Since Chadwick Boseman's passing on August 28th, I along with everyone else have had an opportunity to reflect on his life and how determined he was to live it with purpose.  I believe, like Chadwick, that God has created each of us for a purpose.  God has a plan and a destiny waiting for us if we chose to fulfill it. In the following YouTube clip Boseman said: 

“Sometimes you need to feel the pain and sting of defeat to activate the real passion and purpose that God predestined inside of you," said Boseman. "God says in Jeremiah, 'I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

He further stated, "I'd say find purpose rather than a job or a career. And some times you've got to get knocked down before you can figure out what your fight is. Don't take the easy path. Take the harder one. The more complicated one. The one that has more failures at first than successes. The one that has more ultimately proven to have more meaning, more victory, more glory, then you will not regret it. Now, this is your time. (Our) legacy is not wrapped up in the money you will make, but in the challenges you will choose to confront. Press on with pride. Press on with purpose. I love you ... forever." ~ Chadwick Boseman, Ph.D.

Chadwick Boseman chose to live life on purpose and I am doing the same.   Please join us!
