Ephesians 2:10 says that "We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, even before we were born God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!"
Are you enough?
god designed us with a purpose and he says that doing his good works and being his poetry (HIs love) is fulfilling our destiny.
but, are you doing that?
are you committing your steps to the lord daily? (Psalm 37:5, 23)
are you renewing your mind to his word daily? (Romans 12:1,2)
are you bringing him glory daily? (1 Chronicles 16:23-29)
on top of that--
are you cleaning up your kitchen?
are you washing clothes? Folding those clothes?
(and lets not leave out putting them up--that my friends, is where i'm sure that even sarah, the great abraham and moses fell short! ha ha)
are you exercising?
are you eating right?
are you calling your mom or dad to check on them? (and tell them you love them)
the list goes on and on--
this week i did not get everything done on my list--ah the horror!
i hate letting myself down--cause i have to deal with me everyday! lol
and i know the excuses i give are not valid, i mean i see right through my own feeble attempt to palliate situations like--" oh i'll just listen to a sermon podcast at work, i don't have enough time to finish my devotional"
Um, Really? How lame am i?
when in reality what happened was I exercised too long this morning--being more than willing to give extra time to my workout--and now i am going to rip god off? and miss what may be very important steps for my day, or words of wisdom, or a new idea, or a verse that my heart, or someone else's heart really needs? selfish! and Stupid!
I know--i just need more of me!
like maybe three or four rebecca's. Yep, that would do it.
just think of all i could accomplish if duplicating myself was possible.
all i honestly need is focus.
to take a minute and focus on my god.
god designed you and I as unique individuals.
even when there are twins or triplets or octuplets (dear god, thank you for not giving me that many babies at once, or that many rebecca's to my mom lol) everyone of them god made differently for a purpose.
god has made you for such a time as this,
you have a mission to fulfill in your life.
you, just you, are enough!
you are specially designed by the creator of this world.
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a plan for you and his plan is good to give you a hope and a future!
now go--start working on that beautiful and promising future, but first, don't forget to put up those clothes!
