I know that God the Creator has been having a private conversation with me my whole life. I didn’t always know it. But, I understand now that I have never been alone.
I have been misunderstood many times. I have felt disappointed, bruised, broken, guilty, sad, angry, rejected, etc…
In my life I have also been celebrated, loved, hugged, kissed, thrilled out of my mind, accepted, promoted, honoured and respected as well.
But, I have never been alone.
If I take the most honest look at myself, I have to admit that I have even been more ready to condemn and reject myself than my Father God has been willing to walk away from me. It has been His patience and kindness toward me that has given me the strength to always try again.
Many of us are waking up to God’s appointment of us through a burning love
for Jesus and His way of living (His kingdom).
He has designed us and given us life so that we will be walking signs of His awesomeness.
But, the way of entering that awesomeness is not what I expected. Much of the journey that I have taken would probably have been labeled a “waste” by many people. The question the “friends” of Jesus asked on that day when the woman broke open her treasure and poured it out on Jesus was “Why this waste…?”
I used to care about that question. But, I don’t anymore. In order for a plant to grow, the seed must die
In order for me to live in the awesomeness of my
destiny, I must smash my treasure (dreams, hopes, agenda, ambitions, etc…)
and pour it out in love on Jesus.
That is “why this waste…” 🙂
Do you honestly think that your Creator and lover will abandon you? You are his artistry.
