So you there, beautiful soul, sitting right there this morning ~ what makes your heart tick today? I mean, besides the sovereign God who brilliantly breathed life into you and created you to be just you and just as you are? What motivates you and drives you and what is that passion in your soul that ignites and blazes a way through the thick of things just to be there? Enjoy it all, but take care and beautiful one, if you don’t see our sovereign God in it, it can quickly become as a golden god! One that selfish pleasure carves out of good things and wonderful things to become a default, maybe an obsession or an over the top ‘go-to’ to hide behind. Let’s remember in our moments of passion to step back and down a notch or two! Yeah, just take a deep breath and remember to include God in all of it ~ in your plans, your schedules, and what you say “Yes” to. Ask Him to direct your steps through the thickest of your passions, your desires, your life, your work, your worry, your marriage, your kids, your ministries, your hobbies, and whatever it is that has your mind and your heart wrapped around it’s little finger. God desires for His children to enjoy laughter and fun. He really does ~ and Proverbs 17: 22 confirms for us that “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Oh yes, we want a merry heart and hearts that laugh and enjoy the gift of life that God has given us but so many of us experience the dried up broken spirits rather than the joy. We need the “Happy” but not at the expense of missing the joy of knowing the God who gives the life, the talents, the gifts, the kids, the job, and the ministries. Not at the expense of missing out on the abundant life that we can have in Christ, while here on this earth and the awesomeness of sharing eternity with our Saviour and our King. He’s given us the breath, the life, the journey, the passion, the hobby, now include Him in the walk, the talk, the thoughts and the actions. God is our soul purpose for living, so find Him right there where you are! Include Him and walk with Him and be the pure, beautiful soul that He’s made you to be. Forgiven and Free in Christ, joyful in spirit, saturated in His amazing grace, and blessed abundantly to do His work and enjoy His gifts. He’s got it all for you and He’s got you. Let His light guide and His divine power blaze the way through the thick of it all and walk you through!
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you– majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
