Hey y'all, it's Monday, and I needed some motivation, and I wanted to share that motivation with y'all. I read a short devotional today, and it blessed my soul, so I wanted to share the thoughts behind it with everyone this morning.
Y'all know we're unique. There's not another person exactly like YOU! God has given all of us a unique voice, gifting, and perspective to contribute to this world. We often admire these things in others. Perhaps you see strength and ability in your friend, your neighbor or your child, but do you recognize the same qualities in yourself? You may or may not, but God does, that's a promise! God sees us at our very core. He created us, and He knows us inside and out. There is nothing you can hide from God. He knows your very center, your mind, your heart.
He has the vision to see everything you've already done, and also what He's made you to accomplish. He knows your purpose, and He's ready to help you accomplish it. I want to encourage you today, Don't hold back who you are and who God meant for you to be. Everyone has something unique to give to this world. If you hold back your contribution you're not doing anyone any favors, especially yourself.
Many of us have an inclination to embrace our mistakes over successes. We don't mean to do it, but it's hard to let go of the mistakes we've made, and get back up and try again. Don't be that person! Release that inclination and behold your beauty and your value as a new creation in Christ Jesus. Be everything God intended for you to be.
You have so much to give. God Himself has breathed His breath into your very lungs. You were made in His image. Why do you sell yourself short? He created you, He holds you close and He gave you great purpose. For there is no one else like you. Make a prayer to the Lord today that He would help you to achieve balance in your life. I pray he would show you your purpose and help you to recognize all the good qualities He has given you and how you can implement them.
I encourage you to re-evaluate things in your life today. If you're feeling like you aren't enough, or you don't have what others have to give, know that you are enough. You may not have what others have, but you have something that is unique to you, so don't back down from your gifts, and don't keep them to yourself. God will empower you to accomplish all He has set out for you to do if you seek His will and His word.
In Mark 10:27 Jesus promises us: “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.'” God makes all things possible. Even though we are in uncertain times, that doesn't change the call on your life or the qualities God has endowed you with. Embrace yourself and love yourself the way God loves you. You can do anything you set your mind to, and when you seek God's will, you'll have Him right there beside you every step of the way. Give yourself up, but never give up on yourself! God's ways are higher than our ways. Trust Him, lean on Him, and above all else, listen to Him.
