This is another one of those weeks when I keep telling myself I’ll blog but time has once again not been on my side. Then tonight I remembered the phrase my mom used to tell me (and her dad used to tell her)… “We do what we want to do.” Well, I want to blog. So I’m taking just a few moments to tell you this…
You matter. One day, your Creator decided, without a doubt, that the world needed you for a very specific purpose. He put you together deliberately – cell by cell. And he is pleased with what he created in you. Very pleased. You are a work of fine art that he proudly offered to the world to make it better. And you’ve got flaws, because you’re human and you have a free will. But guess what… your flaws didn’t throw Him for a loop. He knows your heart better than you do. And he loves it infinitely.
Trusting Him with your heart may feel scary, like maybe you should protect yourself from having to do something you don’t want to do… or love somebody who might hurt you… or admit things you don’t want to admit. But nothing is hidden from Him, and nothing could possibly keep Him from knowing and loving the person he so carefully crafted. Letting go of all those hang-ups frees you in every way to allow His purpose for you to be realized.
Of all the things on my heart, I’m not sure why THIS is the message I couldn’t ignore today… but maybe you know. When we really get a glimpse of just how deliberately our Maker placed us exactly where He did in this world… we think, live and love very differently.
