Here I go again!!

Hi.. Susie here, Its early in the morning and I just finished reading my chapter for this weeks bible study lesson. Im reading a book called Discerning the Voice of God. (How to recognize when God is speaking) by Priscilla Shirer. This book is what I call not, a feel good read but rather a challenge to read. Although a challenge Priscilla reminds us How God only wants what's best for us. We live in a world that screams at us to take the easy way and the most convenient way, and although there are times when this is the most efficient way to get a job done.... There are also times when the easy way hinders our growth and our future. This is where it gets personal for me. The key word personal.... Remembering that we are the body of Christ and individually members of it (1st Corinthians 12:27. This is a very important reminder to me as I have struggled so much of my life trying to do and be like others I admired. I am learning that God made me unique and there is only one me. The only one with my DNA. Thats pretty special !!! Yet I struggle to feel special and sometimes begrudge my uniqueness , why can't I be more like so and so? I want to embrace who God me to be and to also embrace His perfect plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11-13) Which means what God will ask me to do looks very different than what He is asking someone else to do because He has an individual purpose for each of us to do that will ultimately work collectively for the body of Christ. So then ? Do I want to do my part? in order to be a part of Gods plan that is greater than just what he has purposed for me ? Im starting to see that if indeed He has created me in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10) That I have an important role here on this earth. So then as I was saying about reading this book, Discerning the Voice of God . I believe in order to understand and know the steps that I need to take in order to be in Gods purpose for which He created me for , I certainly need to be practicing hearing His Voice. Once again I find myself on a journey that is unknown but exciting at the same time!


Till next time

you are wonderfully complex
