This is the first of 6 weeks of posts that are a glimpse into my upcoming book “The Apryl Michelle Brown Story.. More than a Body.” Check back each week for more.
There is a rainbow in every “dark” cloud.
If you are afraid of the “darkness” you will miss the rainbow every time.
The “darkness” is the opportunity to exemplify our faith. Faith is the amazing gift that magically moves mountain.
I have heard this quoted most of my life (being raised in a religious church(cult). But it wasn’t until I was faced with the “darkness” of losing all of my limbs and my butt cheeks, that I really put faith to the test, although I thought I already had great faith(thanks to my mother).
It’s so easy for us to talk about how much faith we have.
For example. If your mortgage is 2000.00 and you have 5000.00 in the bank, you don’t need to exercise faith, you just need to write a check. But, if your mortgage is 2000.00 and you only have 500.00 in the bank, this is where your faith kicks in.
We are so afraid of things outside of “our control”. I Know I was.
I would always say, in my “old normal”, as long as I have my hands , I will be fine.
- I believed that I had so many gifts and talents in my hands.
- I believed somehow they were my “savior”.
What this experience has taught me is as long as I allow ,God(Spirit) to be “in control”, (no matter how it shows up) I am fine.
Actually, I am beyond fine.
Most of us are waiting for our true purpose to show up wrapped in a beautiful bright packages. No rain… No bow.
This is why we miss “purpose” every time.

I am so relieved to know the purpose for my life.
It has taken away all of the questions we ask God like:
- What is it all for?
- Why does this happen?
- Why does that happen?
It is all happening for our purposes. If you question yourself about your purpose, you can’t believe you have one.
We all innately know our purpose , but we innately fear our greatness. Because greatness can be a very lonely road, most of us will not stand for greatness.
We have to go beyond what’s familiar, because what’s familiar is easy.
We can do it with our eyes closed. But greatness is trusting(not believing) that something much larger than you is walking before you.
Most of us rather spend years blaming a “devil” for our misfortune.
It’s not a “devil”, it’s us being afraid to walk in the dark, because we can’t see.
Seeing is not the key, neither is believing(because things will happen in your life to shift a belief).
It’s all about the knowing…Knowing that no matter how it shows up, it is all in divine purpose (order.)
Purpose is the only thing that makes it “all” worthwhile, and it is the ONLY thing that makes us great beyond our wildest imagination.
So get on purpose and be your greatness, because it’s all inside of YOU waiting to show up for our planet earth 🙂
