Take a Look

quotes-about-christian

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 Do You See?

Perspective is powerful and it impacts everything:
Your attitude.
Your thought life.
How you see others.
How you see yourself.
Jesus talked a lot about seeing your life from God’s perspective.
He said,
“Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:22-23‬ ‭MSG‬‬
When you live your life from heaven’s perspective and look to Jesus for help to do it, you will be filled with hope and vision.
When you live your life from earth’s viewpoint and look to those around you to help, you will be filled with disappointment and dissatisfaction.
Jesus came to earth to unleash heaven’s light on earth. He came for you so that your spirit, soul, and body can be filled with the uncontainable light of His love.
What perspective are you viewing your life from?
How can I pray for you?

With God, You Can

 

images-3

“For with God nothing will be impossible.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:37‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

When God drops a promise in your heart and an opportunity in your lap, you must have faith to go forward.

Grab on to faith like it is your job and obey whatever God asks you to do.

Not because it is easy.

Nothing worth having comes easy.

But if God asks you to do it, He will give you what you need to do it.

With God nothing is impossible.

With God, you can.

Blind or Blessed 

  

You can see the world around you with all it’s colors, faces, places, things and still miss the miracles God is doing in it.

You can hear the world around you with all it’s noise, music, conversations, sounds and still miss what God is saying to you.

It is easy see the mess, the chaos, the problems, the pollution. It is easy to hear the negative words, the off key singing, the construction zone noise.

It is natural to see all that is wrong and hear all that is loud.

It is supernatural to see all that God is doing and hear all that God is saying in it, above it and around it.

“But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭13‬:‭16‬ NIV)

How you see the world around you makes all the difference in how you experience it.

Ask God to help your eyes really see ans your ears to really hear Him today.

Don’t live blind, live blessed.
