“God has created each of us with a purpose, with dreams, and a call to fulfill. And for each of us, as life gets in the way, we must decide how we will respond. We can allow what others have done to us to dictate our destiny. Or we can push forward, forgive the wounds of the past, and use what we’ve learned to lead us to achieve our God-given destiny.” – Gil Mertz
