Have you ever had someone discourage you from doing something that you are passionate about? I know, I have! People have no idea how just one word can plant a seed of insecurity in one’s heart. Just because you may not be where you want to be, does not disqualify you from attaining or mastering that gift and that calling that is on the inside of you.
No one knows you better than God! Stop trying to prove something that He has already spoken.
