I believe God sees all
I believe He knows all.
I think He knows what will happen tomorrow, before it happens.
If I take Jeremiah 29:11 as truth, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord..." then God knows all about me.
He knit me together in my Mother's womb (and even gave me a womb-mate) years and YEARS and Ye--, you get the point. I'm old. Even then, He had a plan for me. He knew who I was going to be.
I've made choices, some big and others small. I've gotten off-course a few times and stumbled off the straight and narrow. My stubborn, head-strong nature has led me astray. All of my decisions combined with God's providence have led me here.
Who I am today is me.
But is it the me that God saw when he knit me together? When He ordained the plans before the world began....
I'm not trying to get too deep...you may believe differently, but here's where I am today: Am I living up to my potential? Am I doing what God planned for me? Or does my tunnel-vision blind me. Does my uncertainty of the unknown or fear of other's opinions cripple what I could be or do? Is my desire for the temporal (a beautiful home) and the carnal (stuff to fill my home) stronger than my desire for the spiritual and the unseen, the eternal?
I think I was supposed to start my blog months, maybe even years before I did. I pushed the idea away for a long time. And then, even when I did follow through, it was on a whim (or was it a part of some plan??) Sometimes I wonder.....
Young women like Katie (Kisses from Katie) are living up to their full potential. This 21-year old angel who left mother and the comfort of home, to mother Ugandan orphans (14 of them!) and feed 1,000 children a day, she is doing what God created her to do.
When I stand before Him on That Day, I want my life to show good things. I want Him to acknowledge that I used my gifts for Him.
I want Him to see the me He created me to be.
Here I am Lord, use me.
Tomorrow, I will tell you some of the revelations He's shown me concerning my blog...stay tuned.
How about you? Are you living up to your potential? Are you doing what you were created to do?
