Look at what you have in your hands.
Look at the vision in your heart.
Gaze intently, not at your own reflection, but at the One you have been created to reflect.
God’s original plan was that you be His image bearer.
The representation of His loving hands, compassionate heart, and powerful words in the world.
You are made to be a vessel that brings heaven to earth, interrupts the downward spiral of anxiety with the upward flow of faith, and intervenes in lost lives to help them find the way home.
This was the original plan sideswiped by sin, waylaid by fear, tempted to deny by the whisperer of destructive lies.
You are created to be an image bearer. Jesus died for you to restore you to it.
With Christ, you are restored, redeemed, repurposed, and recreated in His love to walk free in God’s original plan for your life.
“He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 NLT
Look closer at what you have in your hands.
Look deeper at the vision in your heart.
The world needs to see Jesus uniquely expressed through you.
What a privilege to be HIs image bearer. How humbling it is.
