Do you know that you were made for more?
I always have. I still do. I have this continual desire to evolve into a greater version of myself. Especially when I have those pivotal birthdays.
I just recently turned 40 and man have I LOVED every bit of it. Which is shocking in itself really. But it’s TRUE.
I love being a mother of almost 4 teenagers, again shocking 😂.
I love being able to look in the mirror and say ‘you look beautiful’ wrinkles and all y’all.
I also love how young I feel. I love that I feel like I’m just now finally getting to the sweet spot in life. Where JOY comes from the smallest moments, and I appreciate every aspect of my life. Even the struggles, because truth is God has always provided during every season of my life. My faith in HIM has grown so intensely that I can’t help but rejoice in all things.
But back to my question, do you know you were made for MORE?
Well you ARE.
But you are A chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession , so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people , but now you are the people of God ; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy .
1 Peter 2:9-10 NASB
You are royalty my sweet friend. Chosen royalty. You were specifically CALLED by GOD to be apart of HIS glorious LIGHT. I mean how stinking cool is that?
Do me a favor, don’t blow this message off, hear me out for a second. There is a desire within all of us, one that harbors dreams. Ones that are for our families, for others, for our communities. God put those dreams there. And He says if we are good stewards with what’s been given to us, then much more will be given. But if we do nothing with what Hes given then all of it will be taken away. See Matthew 25:14-30
I challenge you today to know that these words that you’re reading were not by chance. I challenge you to seek Gods direction within your life, within your heart, and ask boldly for the courage to fulfill what HE has ALREADY placed within you.
Delight yourself in the Lord ; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Psalms 37:4-5 NASB
