Be You to the Full (Beautiful)

BE YOU

The answer to the question of “What makes you YOU?” is wrought with mystery and mystique.
In this world of a multitude of billions upon billions, you are totally and wonderfully unique.
You may find some who are similar or even eerily close, but not one exactly the same.
Even cloning a person doesn’t replicate a soul, without question, you’re more than your frame.
We’re happily distinctive with our insights and instincts, and yet sometimes we strive
To attain to other people’s testimonies, in hopes of making us feel alive.
Now there’s nothing wrong with great advice, for many know better than you.
But a big part of becoming is the journey itself, a journey we all must go through.
It’d be interesting find, as God had you in mind, your personality tied to your purpose.
And your purpose I’d guess though different from the rest finds you perfectly fit for His service.
So BE prepared to walk your own road, BE prepared to bear your own cross.
God’s plans are to give you a hope and a future; He’s paved the way and paid the cost.
Your destination is based on Providence, hinged neither on blind fate nor chance.
You were especially made by The Sovereign Creator, and your journey IS in His hands.


Here’s The Word;

Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Proverbs 16:9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.


TO THE FULL

Now I’m a big fan of MacArthur and Chan, Tozer, Piper and E.M. Bounds.
But if my life is hidden in Christ, then IN HIM is really where I’m to be found.
Don’t ever discount the value of your personality, in Christ it’s not simply erased.
For in Him you’ll be you the way He intended, as your personality finds its place.
Now before I lose you in an interpretive rut, I’m not talking about your pride and sin.
These must be deleted. In Christ we’re completed and it’s only in Him we can win.
Often times we make much of the power of one voice as the spark to bring about change.
When I sit and ponder God in His magnificence, this ‘one voice’ idea isn’t strange.
Reflect on the idea of assembling a choir, coming together, singing Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
God hears the beauty in every single ‘one voice’ as it’s joined in the multitude of voices.
All singing one song in waves and throngs, a wonderfully massive cry: “HOLY HOLY HOLY”
The fullness of me and the purpose of my journey is reaching my place that reflects His Glory!



Ecclesiastes 13:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

God made you special and absolutely unique and we give credit where credit is due.
We praise God the Father, who didn’t have to bother but for His Glory, He thought up beautiful you!
So you may have ideas of a successful life and accomplishments you want to achieve.
But apart from Him, you’re out on a limb - IN HIM, you live, move and have your being.

Choose Christ and Be You to the full…Journey on!

In Him,
Cros
