Let’s Open ‘Em Up

I believe that God came into our mess, took the band-aid off of humanity’s wound and did surgery. God was willing to step in and save us, and while we can’t save anyone, we could still step in and help. Who can you take the time to help, and in doing so point them back to the God who was willing to give everything for them? Are you willing to step in and do some “open heart surgery” on yourself, so that you can take that same freedom to others? Are you ready to get uncomfortable so that the world can be changed?

Fearless

Timothy had a great calling on his life, yet Paul knew that Timothy, as we do, had the tendency to want to shrink back from that call and remain inactive, a much less terrifying place to be. God has called us to be fearless and fight that tendency to stay stuck. But it’s so much more than that! Fear usually leads to rash or unwise decisions but God has given us the tools to fight against that as well: power, love, a calm mind, a well-balanced mind, discipline, and self-control.

Saintly Sinners

We are called to be Saints; we are called to be holy, not because of how great we are but because of how awesome God is. Take some time to just meditate on that truth. What does being a “saint” mean to you?

Identity Crisis

Despite your present circumstance, know that you are the apple of His eye, His precious child, and don’t let anyone or anything tell you any different. Cry out to Him in the middle of your wilderness, ask Him to meet you in the middle of your “waste” and wait to see what He will do. He surely won’t disappoint.
