Growing up without a father. Something was always missing in my life. I was abused, bullied, emotionally abused, starving for attention, molested, just a mess. Joined the Army still a mess, looked for attention all the wrong places whiskey and men. I did drugs and everything to fill that void and low self esteem. Then God led me to a woman I worked with who started going to Church. She was fired up and was telling me about the rapture and things I have never learned growing up. So, her church was having a revival. I went a couple of nights and something was happening in me. (I didn't know it was the spirit at that time) Preacher was talking about cleaning up your life not sweeping things under the rug and I went home and literally cleaned my house from top to bottom. I felt so much better. I went to Church the next night and was saved. I always knew of Jesus and God but wanted to do things my way. I had to be in control. Since then I have meet a wonderful husband who comes from a family with 2 preachers, grandparents who love the lord, and then I could not have children and he led me to meet my adopted son. I am still learning and growing and sometimes that old devil will bring up the past and throw it in my face. I just remind myself that I have been forgiven.

There is reason of being created as human being; and everything you are is related by your origin. The purpose of something is the reason of which it exists or the original intent for making it. Myles Munroe Said “life without purpose is an experiment”. You are original not photocopy.
Oxford advanced learners dictionary defined original as follows:” existing at the beginning of a particular period, process or activity”.
“A document, work of art, etc produced for the first time, from which copies are later made”.
“A person who thinks, behaves, dress, etc in an unusual way”
It defined as a copy make form original documents. This photo copy can be made available as many copies as you want. Each man on earth was created original not photocopy or duplicate. There is no the same two man in the world; even the identical twins has different thing; they could share things in common, but there will be a little different among them.
Every man is an original image of the living God. For you or I to be an image of God, there is a purpose behind it. God is the source of everyman (male or female, young or adult, wealthy or poor, educated or non-educated, white or black, etc).
IS THERE ANY EVIDENCE?
The Holy Bible is the God’s manual that can tell us the true facts on this. The bible says” then Gods said let us create man in our own image …”Genesis 1:26.
Before the above verse of the bible, God had created other things both water, animal, birds, grass e.t.c. before He created man. He made everything man will use available in other to fulfill his / her purpose of being original.
You are original in other to produce more copies. You are the key to God creative expression. He designed you to operate in original format. You are not in this world accidentally, but according to the purpose of being great and become the prestige image of God in your generation.
Be excel and fulfilling your original purpose
