Pray for rain, y’all; and good morning, BrightStar.
I forget. You forget this, too – you are so much more than you think you are. You can do so much more than you think you can.
“The Spirit of GOD, the Master, is on me because GOD anointed me.
He sent me to preach good news to the poor,
heal the heartbroken,
announce freedom to all captives,
pardon all prisoners.
GOD sent me to announce the year of his grace—
a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—
and to comfort all who mourn,
to care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes,
messages of joy instead of news of doom,
a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.”
Isaiah 61:1-3 MSG
Step aside with me for a moment … step away from your Monday morning to-do list, DearOne. See yourself as a small child and watch yourself grow into who you are today. Give thanks for all the challenges you have overcome to get to this day. Feel the immense love of our Father who has raised you through every parched season. In sincerity, forgive yourself for your human faults and bad decisions. Allow space between your thoughts for growing … learning space … and space to notice that in forgiving the past you deeply feel your anointing by God Himself.
God Most High.
God of the Universe.
The God who loves you.
The God who is for you and not against you.
Let His light cover you and empty you, and now refill you.
Bathe in His light for a moment. His light is your light. Open your eyes and see every part of your world brightened by His love passing across your heart.
You are so much more than you think you are.
