The call of God creates sight in us. It’s the work of God in our hearts to awaken us before his word.” -John Piper

Sweet sisters, today I want to remind you of something you must not forget: You are the message. 

You were not an accident in the eyes of your Maker. He created you with intention and placed within you a purpose to live out. You were created to know God, understand who you are because of who He is, accept His invitation to journey, and to glorify Him along the way. You were created to bear good fruit as you live your life in continual honor and worship for your Creator. You were created to tell the world about Jesus and His love for them through the use of your gifts and the reflection of your life. You were created to be the Message to a world that so desperately needs to hear it. You are called according to God's purpose for the world, and He wants to use every ounce of the potential that lies within you for that very reason if you'll let Him. God desires for you to come forth, lay your burdens down, and open your heart to His love, adoration, and desires for you. God does not want you to share your attention. He wants every ounce of it so He can show you the work that needs to be done. It does not matter who you are, what you've done, or where you've been. What matters is who you are because of who God is, how He desires to use you in His mission for the world, and what you can do with  where you are right now. Your life was not created for you to wake up every morning and ask yourself, "What do I need to get done today?" Your life was created for you to rise with the morning sun and ask the Lord, "How can I better serve, honor, love, and reflect You through this day?" May the way you share and reflect the Message open eyes, hearts, and ears to receiving the love of God today.
