God made us the way we are for a wise purpose
Our path and purpose is unique
We each have a specific path and purpose. This is also true in our educational struggles and strengths. God has made sure each of our journeys are unique to our individual needs, which ensures our best possible earthly experience.Elder Jeffery R. Holland taught that in Heavenly Father's mortal choir, each individual has an important place to enhance the melodies of the song. “It is by divine design that not all the voices in God’s choir are the same. It takes variety — sopranos and altos, baritones and basses — to make rich music.”
"You are unique; you are irreplaceable"
Being different allows everyone to grow and learn from one another. Our uniqueness is what makes life interesting and fun! Elder Jeffrey R. Holland continues, “You are unique; you are irreplaceable. The loss of even one voice diminishes every other singer in this great mortal choir.”
A unique educational journey
When it comes to education, some of us may take more or less time to finish — and that's okay! God has carefully molded a plan for each of us, and as we strive to follow Him, we are promised blessings regardless of our current situation.Everyone’s dreams are different, and our paths to achieving them are unique. God wants us to succeed, and part of gaining success is experiencing challenges to grow stronger through them and learn from hard times. President Henry B. Eyring taught, “Every person is different and has a different contribution to make. No one is destined to fail.”
