What will happen if nothing changes in you and your life over the next 6 months to a year?
Decades ago I heard God whisper in my mind to write about Him. I remember it so clearly that I still feel a bit of shame that I ignored God and the prompting He placed into my heart and mind. But I didn't know my identity--child of THE King, worthy, beloved, empowered, set a part, gifted, talented, treasured, seen, heard, valued, loved, redeemed, forgiven, and "in the beginning of BEING qualified."
Are you ready and qualified for all God is planning for you? Probably not. God grows us through the journey. He brings others into our lives to help us learn and understand how to fully embrace BEING the woman that has achieved and co-created all God wants.
Just like God is amazing and complex, so are we. We are not "just" moms, "just" wives, "just" leaders, "just" ________,.... We are not "just" joyful, happy, mad, sad, fighting depression, overcoming ____, creating _______. We are so many amazing things and feelings all at once.
Let's choose this month to write out the God-inspired and given dreams and goals He has placed in our hearts without reservation, without questioning how, without allowing fear to stop us, without limiting it to big OR small.
Let's choose to analyze the list and what we must BECOME and LEARN in order to accomplish these on God's timeline.
Let's choose to find the God-inspired dream guide who can help us find the tools, the resources, the healing, the books, the mindset, the boundaries, the courage, etc. to BECOME the full IDENTITY that Christ wants.
*Reach out to me and let's link arms. It's time to cultivate faithfulness, courage, and an empowered mindset from Christ.
Let's pray: Dear God Almighty, Creator of heaven, earth, and us, we humbly and boldly come to the throne room of grace to receive instruction from You.
Lord please forgive us, cleanse us, create in us a desire to obey and boldly walk out the gifts and talents You have given us and are giving us each and every day.
We are so grateful and in awe of Your love and mercy! Who are we that You are mindful of us? Who are we that You would sacrifice Yourself, Jesus, for us?
Please help us to fully embrace that awesome gift and not throw it back into Your face by running away from the plans and the desires that You have for us to make a Kingdom impact and to leave a legacy of blessings.
Please empower our minds to persevere in becoming all that You want us to be. Please keep us mindful that You have a full complex identity shaped by Your Spirit and word for each of us.
Thank You Jesus! Praise You Jesus! You are the Author and Perfecter of our faith when we submit to You and follow You. Please imprint Your Holy word upon our hearts and minds and rebuke the devourer away from our harvest of blessings and growth.
We sing praises to Your name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen and Amen!
