Today, I am thinking about who I am Becoming in a different light. My standards are often so linear. I think about beginnings and ends. Time lines from A to B. Getting there with successes and stumbles along the way. Getting there with a point in time, or end, in mind.
God put the word Becoming in my heart. Along with truths like Becoming doesn’t end. We have a God that knew our names before time. He had a plan for each of our individual lives before we came into existence. His Word brought us into time, and His calling will bring us out of time. To Him. We don’t stop Becoming.
What I am learning as a person: I am learning to work hard to reach excellence in the weeds of my life. But not to such a degree that I miss the gift of timelessness when it comes to Becoming.
Verse: Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:13-15
Deep Thought: While there are stops and goes in this present time. While there is death and life as we know it. While linear makes sense right now. There is no end to Becoming. He knew us before time, He knows us as we experience time and He will know us in eternity where there is no time. And, in my view, even in Heaven, we will be Becoming.
Quote: God fulfills the dreams He give us, but not in the way we expect. God works through death and resurrection. Your dream almost dies but then God makes it alive again. Shake off the snakes and keep going. Sermon notes from Pastor Doug Sauder’s message of August 16, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.
Book(s)/Blog(s)/People that Shape Me: My friend Letty V is shaping me. I describe her by real, seeking and honest. She is known at the office as Queen Velazquez. She is known at Sports Ministry as prayerful and strong. I’ve seen her hit a wall, kick the dust of her shoes and keep trucking. I’ve seen her walk hard in storms. She always keeps the wind at her back. I’m honored that her faith impacts mine. Helping me grow. Helping me remember grace, and helping me remember the ins and outs of who I am. Thank you Letty.
My Prayer to You: Father, help us see beyond A to B. Help us see how good You are and that You have graciously put no restraint on grace and growth in our lives. Help us see eternity where we will finally understand timelessness. Help us believe and speak and share with others to Your glory. Amen.
