It has been days since I have heard You tell me this, “there is more to life.” More to this life than what I feel I should be doing, in my own flesh. I have been so focused on my own thing that I have ignored your presence and your direction for my life. Time and time you send your messengers to speak into my heart. Papa, I am ready. For there is more to life than money. There is more to life than trying to fit in. There is more to life than worldly recognition. There is more to my life. -Heart of Grace
“Todo Va A Estar Bien” (Everything Will Be Ok)
Through a worship song by a dear friend David Lugo, God spoke directly to my heart. It was during a time where my husband and I were overwhelmed with things pertaining to his health. (I will be sharing the journey, soon.) A few weeks ago, we were driving and were led to listen to his new album. As the songs played, we came across a song that was birthed at our church… we knew which one it was as soon as we heard it. We immediately felt Gods presence fill the car and tears began to fall down our cheeks.
It was then that we felt Gods assurance and comfort. He reminded us that everything will be ok. He reminded us that He has not left us and that He is doing a new thing in us and in my husbands life (health.)
“Last night He reminded us again. It’s been a theme these past few weeks. Things have been hard, but His love has sustained us through it all. My heart had been closing little by little and other things I was beginning to pick up, in place of Him. I was overburdening myself with things I felt I needed to do because I wasn’t seeing what I needed, when I needed it. I was losing faith.”-Stephanie
More To My Life
Though it is hard to explain to others, the important thing is that I know what is being asked of me. My heart has been taking on a transition, from what I want, to what my Father wants. When I envision my life, I see myself doing what He has called me to do. And it’s powerful.
I have been listening to music from Blake Whiteley. He raps about answering God’s call and doing what he is supposed to be doing, to reach the lost. It has been challenging me. It’s been re-shifting my thoughts, desires and my will. Last night was confirmation of that, and the words God spoke directly to me were the right ones to remind me of my identity in Him.
I know I was meant for more. I know I was called to do more. I know that I have been given visions, desires and specific gifts for a reason; to serve Him, to do what I have been called to do.
I Want To Be Called And To Be Chosen
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”-Matthew 22:14
When it comes to purpose, we all have one. We were all born with a purpose, but so many fail to live it out. I am not saying that everyone is called to be in “ministry.” God has doctors. God has athletes. God has lawyers. God has so many people doing different things, but they do it for Him. They are where they should be.
So many people fail to do all they are meant to do, because they do not answer His call. In all honesty it’s because they are afraid of what it will require. I don’t want to be like that. I have so many desires and so many things I would like to do, to reach out to so many people. To share with them what’s been done in my life.
I was found. I was healed. I was restored. I was loved when I felt unlovable.
How many people are still out there feeling hopelessness? How many people are still feeling broken? How many people are still in need of saving? So many!
I want to answer His call. I want to be chosen, because of my willingness to serve Him.
These songs have been on my replay list. They have been encouraging me and helping through this season. I want to share them.
