Psalm 139 13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.
As we move closer to the new year the pressure is on again. What are we going to do next? What is that thing God puts on repeat in your head daily and you try your best to suppress it? Did you know that you have God’s gift to the world trapped on the inside of you? You are a magnificent creation, full of life and potential!
22-23 All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; it’s within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile and barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance.
Not only do we wait for what is within us to come out but the world is waiting to. My goal is to draw that out of people this year and beyond.
Did you know that you are made in the image of God? I want to hold up the mirror so you can get a glimpse of your true self. The you God says you are is simply amazing and unique. You are God’s workmanship made for good works!”
If you are full of ideas then you have the traits of the all mighty God showing up in you right now.
Did you know that you were created to be a blessing? You are so special to God he said, “there is a problem in the world and I am going to send my solution!” >>>>>>>>>Enter you. You are an answer to what the world is in need of. No one will be able to make your contribution quite like you. They could copy but it would be an obvious, cheap, knock off version of you.
Today it is time to take your vision out of the closet and dust it off. What makes us tuck them away? Today I invite you to use that beautiful brain and think.
You have so much potential in your deepest parts and I am here to draw it out. To expose you to your true self. I have some questions.
How much further will you go without fulfilling your hopes and dreams?
How long will you allow your dreams to be held hostage by the world’s standards.
What barriers, real or imagined, are keeping you from pursuing your dreams?
Who are you? Why are you hear? What is your purpose?
Who determines what you do with your time?
Who is in charge of your daily life?
What things are necessary for you to thrive?
Who are you following?
Who is following you?
What is your value?
How do you spend your most valuable asset (time?)
I am convinced that as we walk in the direction of our creator we are going to be introduced to a self we never knew existed. Who would have thought you were in there the whole time! I’m excited to see where your vision takes you!
22-23 But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.
The best part of being the real you is that you lose the desire to compete with anyone else. When we are this free we can help our neighbor to reach the same goals.
