my coach Marcos, and somehow he knew the gist of my situation without me even telling him. I was amazed because I thought my parents had told him to talk to me, but it was actually God calling him to speak to me. He came up to me and said “Hey I feel like something happened over the break that you need to talk about because you’re not understanding why it happened to you.” I told him what happened. He responded with saying “I truly believe God has a purpose for everything He does, and I feel like He has something greater for you than you are even imagining right now. Look up Romans 8:28. It says and we know that in all things God works for those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” The talk with my coach has forever changed my perspective on what happened to me. Do I still wish it wouldn’t have happened to me? Well of course, but that’s not what the Lord wanted. He wanted me to have that experience for some reason which I still don’t know yet, but I am trusting that it happened for a purpose. I’m trusting that God has control of my life, and that He has an incredible future planned for me that is far more than I can ever imagine. I do believe this whole incident did happen for a reason, and it does have purpose. 16. Unfinished Sentences 1. I usually worry about what the future holds. I know that God has a plan and purpose for my life, but it scares me that I will settle for something less than my best or go down the wrong path. I should give my worries to the Lord and trust His plan. 2. I feel angry when I’m not making progress on something right away. This is not a good habit because some things just take time, and things will happen based on God’s timing 27
not mine. 3. I’m moody when my siblings think they know everything or try to be show offs when others are around. This makes me moody because when they do this they aren’t acting themselves and are just trying to attract attention. 4. I’m happiest when all my family is getting along and when I see someone dedicate their life to Jesus Christ. When all my family is getting along, it gives me peace and joy because I know everything is working out. When I see someone dedicate their life to Jesus Christ, it gives me goosebumps because they are creating a relationship with the Lord and will now spend eternity with the Him. 5. I feel confident when I am encouraged by others or when I encourage others. Getting encouraged reassures me that I can do anything I set my mind to. When I encourage others, I feel confident in myself because I know I might have just given them the same feelings I get when I am encouraged. 6. I feel frustrated when I can’t come up with ideas right away for a business or product I want to create and own someday soon. This makes me frustrated because I want to create something so bad to not only make money but to also find a solution to a major problem in the world.
