The Purpose

Why not me?
I was chosen for a purpose that hasn't been revealed
Should I sing, Should I write or maybe even heal
Who am I?
Just an average girl,
Who can't find her place in this world
But why me?
I wasn't sent here for impending doom
God knew me when I was in the womb
My heart is big and full of love
The breath I take came from above
What can I offer?
Wisdom, encouragement maybe a prayer
Healing hands, a song or maybe just share
I didn't ask to be here but it was in His plan
To fulfill a purpose and help where I can
I don't know why I'm here and deserve all of this
I guess it's to fulfill God's mission and the purpose

    I totally understand where you're coming from. I struggle trying to find my purpose too. Hopefully, it will be revealed to both of us. Have a great Sunday.
