Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. -2 Corinthians 5:17
I search my soul...what is it I'm to do, what did God make me to be...he made me to love, laugh, share a smile, kind word, helping hand, lend encouragement. Bear ye one another's burdens, and this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. I can do all these things with Joy, but at times, I feel empty. I can't love, until I love myself.
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 10
Recently I listened to a series from Chip Ingram, Your Divine Design.
I've made a list of my strengths and weaknesses.
Loving heart ~ Willingness to forgive - the want-need to "fix"
Worry ~ Not letting go - poor self esteem
I'm afraid, what if I fail, I have so many insecurities. So do we all...let's do it together. What we are most passionate about. We'll get strong, we'll have Joy. We can be a paint brush in the hands of the Master. Let us do what God made us to do...
No good thing will be withheld from those who walk uprightly. -Psalm 84:11
What are your strengths, weaknesses? Feel free to share comments, suggestions.
Dear God, nudge me into the water, open my heart to what it is you made me to be. Amen
