Present, not perfect

Presence is my super-power…. And no, I’m not being arrogant by saying that.

You see, there was a time in my life when I used to look at myself and see a man that was weak and easily over-powered…. I believed that lie because I underestimated my strength. My spiritual blindness didn’t allow me to all that God placed inside of me since birth. Little did I know that I was created for greatness. I had no idea that someday the Spirit would someday use me as a conduit to bridge the hurting with His healing grace.

Today I carry confidence. Confidence that I can face the unknown. Confidence in who I am and what I was created to be. By choosing to be present I’m taking ownership of the greatness that gifted to me….. and today I choose to be present to those that God places before me.

Today, this presence invites you to join me on a journey. It’s not a perfect one. In fact it can be messy….. but it’s absolutely worth it.

Unapologetically yours,

John Eli
