All of us uniquely reflect something about Jesus. This is SO beautiful. When I am around this many people who are all after the heart of Jesus it's easy to forget that I am unique. I have to be confident in the fact that we all have different stories about who Jesus is for us and my story is going to touch a specific person. I want to share the Jesus I have experienced, the Jesus who has touched MY life. Hopefully me being me will reflect the glorious image of Christ.
Another cool thought was that if I am in the will of God and obeying Him I don't have to be afraid of my life. No one or nothing can touch me until my time has come. There will be places we will go that may seem "dangerous" and this little fact is important to know so that we do not live in fear.
Tomorrow we get to lay something at the cross. All week I have been asking what it is I should give to Him. Is there something that is keeping me from obeying Him completely? The cross is where I can lay anything down. It is a place of healing. Tomorrow I am going to lay down a list of lies that are fed to me on a daily basis. It's so easy to buy into these lies but I must stand firm and remember His promises. I am beautful. I bring Him joy. He is pleased with me. I am worthy. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am a daughter of God whom He never disapoints and always protects. The more secure and confident I am is how big my YES can be. I want this ordinary life of mine to be lived in an extraordinary way. God has given me a precious gift of 6 months and I want Him to transform me.
