What on earth does it mean to be an original? We just copy a little bit of what everyone else is doing and we get by. With social media and all of the trending tags, we all seem to consume the same information based on our likes and followings so we can replicate others.
I will tell you the secret to being original. It’s simple and yet incredibly complex. The Holy Spirit was given to us as a gift from Jesus when He departed from earth to be our helper. The Holy Spirit is God and therefore is our Creator.
Hmm, if I knew my Creator and had a personal and intimate relationship with Him, I think I’d start understanding better why I am the way I am and what my purpose is and so much more!
So, the answer is simple but walking with God having a relationship with Him can get complex. You see, starting any relationship is easy but it’s the walking it out that is complex. The longer you walk with Him though and the deeper you go with the Holy Spirit, the more you’ll shed the things that don’t matter and have no eternal value and you’ll start being the most original and authentic version of yourself.
When you’re new to faith it’s normal to imitate people who’ve been doing it for a while but after a while the Holy Spirit will not allow you to stay there. He will start giving you your own map with specific destinations. This adventure map is strictly between you and Him. You’ll start operating in your purpose and having original ideas and creations. All of this takes a lot of intimacy with Him and incredible discipline but it is the best adventure ever!
If you do not have a relationship with God or you’re not sure if you do, please leave a comment in the chat or message me on the contact page.
