Now that I have found my brain from being on vacation for 10 days I wanted to sit with this thought…we are made for more.
More of what?
I spend time reading through comments on news articles only to be left feeling sick to my stomach and honestly wondering what is wrong with people. This world is so disappointing, overwhelming and over run with relativism.
There is something I just want to point out…not that any of those individuals will read my blog, I’m going to soapbox none the less….
We were made for more! More than hateful words, criticism and judgement…we were made for more than angry, unforgiveness, lies, and bullying those around us…we were made for more than being cruel and vicious. Made for more than our own mistakes, the wrong done to us, and hating ourselves. YOU SISTER WERE MADE FOR MORE!
We were made to reflect the image of Christ, to show love, and compassion. We were made to extend mercy and forgiveness because Christ did the same for each one of us. We were made to treat others with kindness…yes…kindness, even when they aren’t kind to us. We were made beautiful and lovely in the eyes of our Father who loves us unconditionally. We were made to walk in truth, to walk in light! We were made to be image bearers not an image hinderance.
Satan wants nothing more than to get in the middle of us and God any way he can by dividing us, causing fights and anger. Don’t be fooled he is out to get you…but when we remember that we are made for more and not just remember but live like we are made for more, Satan will have a harder time reaching the doorstep where you are.
This morning I spent my time studying Leah with the She Reads Truth community and I found myself thinking how much her story applies and how we as women can learn a great lesson from where she found herself. I wonder if she knew that she was made for more? I wonder if she saw that being angry at her situation would have been worth it in the long run….Leah knew that God saw right where she was and she knew that He loved her enough to make her more than what everyone else saw in her, you see God looks at our hearts not how we look on the outside. He knew that He created her to be something far greater…she would play a role in the lineage of Christ. Instead of living in anger over things that were happening to her she chose to worship the one who saw her like no one else, she chose to live her life for Him and in the end God used her to do something incredible.
Sister you and I have the same choice to make. We can choose to throw out anger or criticism to our own situations or the situations around us….or we can choose to worship and praise the one who sees us right where we are and knows that HE made us for more.
