Our stories share a lot about us: our hopes, dreams, plans, and how we are fulfilling our God-given purpose.


Paul was confused about what God wanted from him, until he felt God speak to him about his heart for the homeless and his desire to bring more people to know the Lord. He did a remarkable thing and set out to feed the homeless who “are physically hungry…but this paved the way to talk to people about spiritual food”.

Paul gave out Bibles along with a copy of the UCB Word for Today because he’s “always found it to be really inspired wisdom…God inspired wisdom”.

Paul says “I don’t have a real plan…The Lord had said ‘Paul, it’s my plan, I just want you to be obedient’ and it’s wonderful and it’s been transformational in my life…and I’m just going to keep listening.”

Beccy had a difficult start in life. There were things she shouldn’t have witnessed or experienced which resulted in a spiralling trauma that led her to self-harm: “I remember thinking ‘I need to control something, I can’t control anything around me right now’.”

However, God never left her, and soon revealed a plan for her life: to help other people recover from trauma and addiction. She says, “The comfort that you’ve received from God is the comfort that you will give.”

Like Beccy, wherever we find ourselves in life, God is in control. He knows the bigger picture. He knows what’s best for us. He knows the right timing for things to happen. He’s completely trustworthy. 

So today, let’s surrender everything to Him: every plan, dream, hope, fear, emotion and situation.

UCB is here to help more people discover their God-given purpose, through UCB Radio, the UCB Word for Today, Prayerline and more. We are passionate about helping more people live life to the full!
