40 Day Faith Adventure... Day 2

What thought or statement was highlighted, written in the margin, or noted in your journal today?

...from the second to the last paragraph of the poem, I wrote in the margin...
God is shaping my heart for His purposes.

Praying specifically for those with a battered self-esteem today.  Knowing God shaped the outside just as much as the inside really can take some pressure off. 

As final question states, "... are there areas of my personality, background, and physical appearance that I am struggling with?"  Sure!  It's a reminder to give Him my all... be grateful... not whine... seek His power to change what I can (not in my own strength)... focus on the inside first... be intentional about letting God melt away those selfish traits & desires that I didn't realize had attached themselves to me.

"Everything... finds it's purpose in Him." ~ Colossians 1:16  May I Glory you God by living out my purpose for today!  In Jesus Name.

There Is A God by 33 Miles

There’s a beauty to the dawn,
A rhythm to the rain
A silence in the soul,
that I just can’t explain

There’s a breath of life I breathe
A beating in my heart
A magnificence, a scary sense
of what lies past the stars

Beyond what we can see
Behind the mystery
I know that it could only be...

(Chorus)
There is a God!
This is the proof!
That all around the evidence
is speaking the truth!

From the center of my soul!
To the edge of the universe!
Creation is crying out, believe it or not!
There is a God!

There’s a debt that has been paid
A grace that I’ve been shown
A hope that I’ve been given,
that I have never known!

There’s a love that conquers darkness!
A piece of life in me
There’s a life that’s not just here and now,
but for eternity!

Beyond what we can see!
Behind the mystery!
I know that it could only be...that

(Chorus)
There is a God!
This is the proof!
That all around the evidence
is speaking the truth!

From the center of my soul!
To the edge of the universe!
Creation is crying out, believe it or not!
There is a God!

I believe it! I believe it!
There is a God

I can feel it! I can feel it!
There is a God

And the more I find the less I need to see!
I’ve never been so sure, so sure of anything!

(Chorus)
There is a God!
This is the proof!
That all around the evidence
is speaking the truth!

From the center of my soul!
To the edge of the universe!
Creation is crying out, believe it or not!
There is a God!

I am overwhelmed by how much God loves me. None of us are accidents and He custom made our bodies, personalities, etc. The Bible says God IS love...not that He has love. My identity should be based on these amazing truths, and I pray my heart will reflect His goodness and love. If I let His great love overcome me, I will overflow with His love into all of my relationships and bring others closer to Him, which is my purpose.
