Meditations on Restoration-God made you On Purpose

Are there ever times when you feel like your story doesn't matter? It's time to talk Restoration.

Meditations on Restoration-God made you On Purpose

“You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. “ ~John 15:16 (NLT)

Whether you are an out loud participant, or whether you live a life quietly in the background, hear me clearly. God knew precisely what He intended when he created you, placed you in your current circumstances, and gave you that voice.

So often, we feel overwhelmed. Like we do not matter. Like no one is listening. Lately, the words of this old hymn, redone by artist Yolanda Adams keeps ringing in my head. The lyrics?

Lord I hear of showers of blessings
Thou art scattering full and free
Showers the thirsty souls refreshing
Let some drops now fall on me
Pass me not oh gentle Saviour
Sinful though my heart may be
I am longing for your favor
Whilst thou art blessing
Oh Lord
Come on and bless me..
Even me.

Yup, even you. Today, I want us all to meditate on being chosen by God. Perhaps you’ve never felt unworthy-maybe you are currently feeling nothing but. 

Pause, place your hand over your heart and feel that insistent rhythm-you are here. God has a purpose and a plan, and He chose you. You, beautiful one. 

Remember, there is no sin that separates us from Grace. You matter. You are forgiven. You are redeemed, and most of all, you are beautiful.

Walk into the day with your head held high. Be the blessing He created you to be.
