What is your role in this story of my life: Are you Abraham, Issac, the Ram, the Thicket, the Alter, the Knife, one of the two Servants or God? In fairness, it would depend on what role I’m playing…I’m constantly changing… (Praise God)
In this season of my life I am being intentional in everything I do and purposeful in what I say. As God deals with me and my fears, I am being bolder in my faith and in trusting Him with what He gives me to do and say.
One of my first stories from the Bible that I understood as a child is Abraham & Issac: the Testing of My Faith. Each time I read it, I get something new. I have been stuck on the “THICKET” for a while. Just this morning it came to me…the thicket in my life are the people that I have allowed to dilute my dreams and poison my hopes. I have lived in fear of everything my entire life! I have held back from doing great things because I allowed other people’s fears and doubts of their life to shape mine. I remember the first time I stepped out on faith and did something HUGE that someone said I souldn’t do – I DID IT!! That was 11 years ago.
Since then, I have accomplished things that were centered around my son. When it comes to him, nothing is impossible for me to do but until resent I didn’t have that same drive for myself…Until TODAY!
On this day, I will play the role of Abraham – I will do what God asks me to do. My passion is Issac, I will offer it up to God, trusting Him with it…stay tuned to see how the rest of my story unfolds!!
After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to you.” Genesis 22:1-5 ESV
Lord, help me stay connected to you so that I do not dilute your plans for my destiny!!
I will not listen to toxic words from anyone…OnPurpose!
