Hey you! Welcome back to my blog. I hope you’ve had a beautiful Monday so far, and a great start to your week. I wanted to start this week off with a little bit of encouragement by sharing with you what God has been revealing to me during my daily time with him. My hopes in sharing these things with you is that you can be encouraged too!
You are God’s Masterpiece
I’ve been listening to this song on repeat called Dancing on the Waves by Bethel Music. It’s meant to be a song from God to us. There’s a particular part that has stood out to me. It says “I set every star into place so you would remember my name. I made it all for you. You are my masterpiece, you are the reason I sing. This is my song for you.” God is saying to us today that He set every star into place, every beautiful thing in nature that we see, all for it to point us back to Him. He also created us and called us His masterpiece. God has spoken to me through this song these last couple of weeks and reminds me each time that I am His masterpiece and that I am loved by Him. And newsflash: He says the same for you too!
Take responsibility for what God has already given you
I don’t know about you, but I catch myself doing it all the time. I pray to God to ask to answer my prayers or to ask for a new opportunity in my life. Lately, I’ve been hearing God tell me that I need to focus on what He’s already blessed me with and to take responsibility for those answered prayers before I ask for more. When I realized this, I examined my actions and my heart and realized that I haven’t been disciplined in taking care of the responsibilities that God has given me in life as well as I should. These past few weeks I have been praying and asking God for discipline and obedience to take care of the things He has entrusted me with. If this is speaking to you too, know that you aren’t alone, but that God is with you as you hear this and He wants to help you with your responsibilities!
I need to surrender other people’s opinions of me to God
This one is a tough one. I am definitely a people pleaser and hate to even admit it that I often let people’s opinions get the best of me. Through some tough lessons and hearing some tough things that other people have said about me, God is finally helping me to see that I need to surrender other people’s opinions of me to Him. People are going to talk about me, they are going to say things intentionally and unintentionally to hurt my feelings and there’s nothing I can do to control them. BUT I can control how their words affect me. Instead of letting others words affect me, I’m going to choose to surrender them to God and remember what God says about me instead. That I am loved, seen, fearfully and wonderfully made, and His MASTERPIECE!
And there you have it folks. These are just a few lessons and realizations that I’ve had while spending time with God these past few weeks. I hope they speak to you and inspire you too in some way. Has God been speaking to you or giving you any life changing lessons lately? Write to me in the comments or reach out to me on social media, I’d love to hear about it! I hope you have a beautiful day!
Always with Love,
