“It was you who formed my inmost part and knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
When I was discerning my purpose in life, I had to go back to the basics and list down my passions and potentials. As mentioned in one of Bro. Bo’s articles, Are You Fulfilling Your Life Purpose?: Passions refer to the things that I love to do; that when I do it, I feel like I’m in my element and in my zone. Potentials refer to my gifts; my anointing; what I do that has the most impact on others. As I am listing down my potentials, I realized that there are 3 views that I can take into consideration as I determine my anointing in life — what God says; what I say; and what others say.
The verse above continually serves as a reminder that of all the opinions and views about myself — what I should ultimately listen to is what God says about me. Yes, His views and opinions weigh even more than what I say because I found out that how I see myself can be flawed as well (as I have shared in my blog post, The Girl in the Mirror). God is the one who created me and He is the one who designed my whole being. He gave me a specific purpose that only I can do with the unique set of passions and potentials within me. And whenever I feel lost and unsure about my future and the reason why I am here — I should go back to my Creator and listen to what He has to say about me. Knowing Him, He will tell me how beautifully, lovingly, and wonderfully made I am!
~ Praying For ~
Father God, thank you for creating me beautifully, lovingly, and wonderfully! Thank you Lord because now I know that I am not an accident; that I am created for a purpose. Even before I was conceived in my mother’s womb, you have already envisioned my future. You have thoughtfully designed my being so that I can fulfill what you have envisioned for me — a life of great possibilities! Amen!
~ I am beautifully, lovingly, and wonderfully made! ~
