Who am I?
What am I here to do?
For myself, my family, but most importantly for Him, for His Kingdom.
When I ask myself these questions, hard questions…I am more times than not overwhelmed. Filled with strong emotions. When I say: strong emotions; I’m talking, stop me in my tracks, I want to go back to bed, cover-up, blanket over my entire head… Begging Him: Stop prompting me! By reminding me, of what you planned and proposed for me to do at this very moment in time. That’s right, such a time as this. Stop! I am Not Esther! I am Cinderella!
His response: “Esther is your inspiration.” If she can do it, I promise, you can too. You may not have a Mordecai, but you have me, your heavenly Father. Remember? I’ve been here this entire time. I know you! I know ALL of you. You are Cinderella. I created you. On purpose with passion for such a time as this.
I want to remind you of some very important things…
· Miracles take time, Cinderella.
Job 5:8-9 NIV – But if I were you, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. I’m not a fairy godmother, Cinderella. I am God, the Father, your father, maker of heaven and earth.
· Nothing is impossible for me. I’m in the business of possibilities, Cinderella.
Matthew 19:26 NIV – Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
· Trust me. Ephesians 3: 20-21 NIV – Now
to him who can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
· I will NEVER leave you or forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:6-8 NIV
6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
It’s time, Cinderella…
With ALL my LOVE,
PS…. Remember, the Life Scripture, I sent you from the Holy Spirit. When you get weary or lack the courage to push forward – read it.
You have searched me, LORD, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
If I were to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.
If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name.
Do I not hate those who hate you, LORD, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
