Made for MORE!!!!

On a daily basis, no matter if we are believers or not, we face decisions and often times find ourselves wondering what we were made for.  This is where self doubt and depression enter in.  It is sad to see so many around me going through this very thing.

Over the last week, I, myself have pondered what I was made for.  I realized that I had made it through college and done great, but I didn't feel like I had accomplished much because I still have my national exam to take.  I allowed the enemy to get in and plant that seed of self doubt.

I hadn't gone walking, let alone had time alone with the Lord in a while because I allowed life to get in the way.  It was something I am not happy about, but it happened.  So this morning I went on a walk and had worship time with the Lord at the same time.  On my walk, He revealed a few things to me.

1.  YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE THAN ORDINARY-- As I began my walk, I hadn't even gotten 1 lap around my neighborhood before the Lord had begun speaking to me.  He said, "you were made for more!  You were made to thrive!"  Right after hearing this, a song came on to confirm what the Lord was saying.

 I made you flourish like a plant of the field. And you grew up and became tall and arrived at full adornment. Ezekiel 16:7a.


Here in this worn and weary land
Where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water
We never will run dry
So living water flowing through
God we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls
With one desire
Just to know You and yo make You known
We lift Your name on High
Shine like the sun made darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more
Than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive
Woah
Woah
Into Your word we're digging deep
To know our Father's heart
Into the world we're reaching out
To show them who You are
So living water flowing through
God we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls
With one desire
Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on High
Shine like the sun made darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more
Than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive
Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable,
Love unstoppable, anything is possible
Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable,
Love unstoppable, anything is possible
Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable,
Love unstoppable, anything is possible
Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable,
Love unstoppable, anything is possible
Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on High
Shine like the sun made darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more
Than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive
Hey!
Woah
Woah
Woah
Woah
We were made to thrive


The lesson I take away from this is that the ordinary life that has me so frustrated is just a stepping point and the Lord has so much more for me!  It is time for me to THRIVE IN JESUS CHRIST! 


2.  THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU BELONG-- As I got about 1/2 way around the second lap, another song came on where the Lord used the lyrics to remind me that I am not where I belong and that this home is just temporary.  You may know this song, but if not, check it out on youtube.  It is called Where I belong and is sung by Building 429.  In our lives, we each go through seasons, and I went over that scripture the last blog entry, but what is interesting is that there are times for harvest, it is almost time for the Lord to harvest the work he is doing in us all, and he is showing that he is almost ready for the next season in my family's life.  

3.  HEALING BEGINS IN YOU!-- Last lap around, the Lord continued speaking to me.  I got the feeling that he wanted me to know that the healing begins within me.  A song that I had not heard before came on.  While this is not the song, it does have the same basic meaning.  I have not been able to find the name of that song yet, but I know that in due time I will.  



As I close, Please listen to the video up there You will be glad you did.  It's an amazing song and remember, when you are broken, the healing begins!
