Let’s do cool things with this uber cool day!
I LOVE the sound of this new day and date, the feel of it, as it rolls off my tongue: 12-13-14…Today, a day like no other, is a rare gift. A new opportunity for us to do amazing things for each other, for the beauty and the blessing of others.
What will you do with this amazing gift of today in your life?
So far today, I’ve gotten up uber early, awakened in my spirit in the wee hours of the morning, called to the table to open my Bible and be lifted with powerful words of encouragement, strength, and hope. Reminded that in every area of my life, God has more for me. God spoke to the Israelites through the son of Zechariah on the eve of a mighty battle, in 2 Chronicles 20:15, saying very simply: ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not mine, but God’s’.
‘The battle is not mine, but God’s.’ Powerful words, and a potent reminder that when God calls us into this new day, into whatever it is He has uniquely gifted you and me to do, ‘the battle is not ours, but God’s.’
Are you up against impossible odds in an area of your life today? Are there challenges in your personal or professional life you’d love to run away from? As I walk into this new path of releasing Alabaster Vases into the universe, I am torn between rejoicing and wanting to run and hide! It’s cool, but it’s scary cool! And I am so glad for today’s early morning reminder that I do not walk alone. That there is One who has uniquely crafted me for this work, for this walk, for this challenge. It belongs to Him, and so do I. His words of truth to me today—‘Do not fear…for the battle is not mine, but God’s—leads me to relax, rejoice, and take joy in this new journey!
And that’s my wish for you—that you can drop your fear and pick up on the power of His encouragement and presence—relaxing into today and rejoicing in your journey.
Celebrate 12-13-14 with me today by doing cool things for other people on this uber cool day and date!
