Hey everyone! So I want to say that I miss this place. I miss this space God has given me to express what He reveals inside my heart. I have to say these past two months that I took a hiatus from my blog…I’ve been struggling. I’ve been struggling with this call that God has placed on my life. I know that this is what He wants me to do because I come alive with His joy every time I write and I know He smiles down on me walking in His obedience. But I’ve struggled feeling worthy of this calling. I sometimes take a look back at all the visions and dreams God has placed inside my heart and I take a step back and say to myself “Me? Really God? How can I achieve that? Why are you choosing ME??”
But God showed me I had the wrong perspective. I was looking inward and not outward at my King who IS already victorious in all things. God even says in scripture that He on purpose chooses what looks foolish or inadequate to the world, so that HE will get the glory from the things accomplished through you. This has been a journey, but its only truly the beginning. I choose to look at the worth and victory Jesus has given me and use the gift God has so generously given me. We must embrace our gifts. There is a dying world out there that is searching for love and answers. We know the answer and His name is Jesus. Let’s embrace our gifts to proclaim His name. I don’t want to say write too much in this post because I’m going to let this video speak for itself, but I’m going to leave you with a few verses that God has been showing me in this journey in accepting the worth in my calling.
Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:26-31 NIV)
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 NLT)
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. (Philippians 4:13 AMP)
I love you and Jesus loves you more.
