Purpose – Benjamin Yong

I’m gonna take a moment to be real and admit a very deep and profound truth about me. It’s hard to admit and takes a lot of courage for me to bring such a personal but core aspect of my life to light…


Finally! It feels so good to let it out! But seriously, I am a die hard Belieber. With CLASSIC hits such as ‘Baby’, ‘One Time’ or ’Sorry’, who couldn’t be?

But what I find so appealing about Justin, is not his great music or perfect sense of fashion, it’s the fact that he is just like you and me. Completely relatable. Here are three facts that prove it:

1. He is human
I’m 75% sure that if you’re reading this you’re probably human just like my man JB (or could be making a massive assumption in which case you’re a gold fish and I sincerely apologize)

2. He stuffs up heaps
Anybody who has heard anything about Justin in the last few years knows that at times he can be quite notorious, seen through his deportation from the United States. But before we start judging, imagine if the spot lights were on you, your sins and your past. Imagine if the whole world saw what you looked at last night or what you thought just a second ago? Just like Justin, we tend to stuff up heaps.

3. But he is still loved by God
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. It doesn’t matter how bad you think you are. It doesn’t matter that you may not feel loved. GOD WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Nothing can separate you from the love of God. All it takes is a willing heart to step into the plan and future that God has planned for you.

“I put my heart into your hands
Here’s my soul to keep
I let you in with all that I can
You’re not hard to reach
And you bless me with the best gift
That I’ve ever known
You give me purpose
Yeah, you’ve given me purpose” – Justin Bieber (2015)
