"I have been chosen"

I realized that my self identity is very important in determining who I am and what is my significance. Before this I always saw myself as a disappointment and a person who can't contribute much to other individuals rather the society, due to certain mistakes and wrong decisions made in the past as an individual as well as a leader in the Catholics society of my campus. I have achieved realizing that I am chosen, worthy and put through these situations because I have been chosen for a certain purpose by God and despite all wrongdoings my God still believes in me and knows that I have a bigger purpose in life, and that is to be an example and a leader to all members of catholics society as well as all catholics around my campus over this weekend with God's spirit and grace. Realizing that this is a struggle among most students in tertiary education level, I can use what I've learnt throughout these 3 days to help others who are struggling in the campus.
