After watching the video, I went to the Youtube channel that posted it. He has songs and videos about cats flushing toilets (5 million views), a boogie woogie hedge hog (3 million views), and the best burrito I've ever eaten (1 million views). All total 12,000,000 + people have viewed his channel. Pretty incredible! I bet friends of his said he was stupid, crazy, ridiculous, and dare I say "childish." He apparently didn't care...their remarks and criticism didn't stop him from doing what he loved & was meant to do.
The "U" in the word FOUND stands for "Undaunted." What a great word! It means, "Not intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, disappointment, or danger." Whether it's a Youtube Channel, a new business venture, or some other leap of faith, there will always be negative people & circumstances we face in our paths. There are people armed with a mission to discourage, distract, and intimidate you away from your your God given dreams! Your desire to be FOUND and fulfill your purpose in this life, will be met with words & phrases like "that's impossible," "how will you," "I hope you know what you are doing!" We can't let this stop us!
Jesus wasn't distracted, intimidated, or detoured from what He was put on earth to do. The Bible tell us about people who tried to keep Him away from His purpose, but ultimately He knew He was here to do His Father's will, not man's. I'm so thankful He was obedient. Because He was undaunted by people's words and comments, He was able to die and rise again, so that all of us could have the opportunity to believe and be FOUND ourselves. Jesus said, "when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself." (Matthew 12:32)
Satan Himself, Jesus' closest friends, and many others tried to stop Him, but He chose to fulfill His purpose in spite of all the negativity He faced. Because he was Undaunted, we can have forgiveness, hope, and life forever.
We need to be Undaunted! We have been given gifts and creative abilities. We each have a purpose & destiny in this life that was prepared for us before time began (Ephesians 2:10). As believers we can use those gifts & abilities to share this amazing message of faith, hope, and love with our neighbors, co-workers, community, and others we come in contact with day to day.
Everyone hasn't been called to make up random songs about monkeys riding on a pigs, but what you were designed to do may feel just as crazy to you at times. We need to do it anyway! You never know...there may be 5,000,000 people waiting for you to fulfill your God given destiny, so they can be FOUND too.
