“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14
When I was out for a run yesterday, the LORD spoke these words to me, “YOU ARE NOT AN OPENING ACT, YOU ARE THE HEADLINER”
I chuckled and agreed but as I continued on my way, I realized that the LORD was not specifically referring to me but to HIS people.
Are you an opening act? No, dear lovely, you are not an opening act, but rather, you are the headliner with a limited amount of time to dazzle the world with your gifts & talents before you return to the earth.
“All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust” Ecclesiastes 3:20
Dear shiny thing ツ, the world awaits your arrival and as the LORD puts it, “You are the light of the world” and the world needs your light, not the other way around!
I wrote a song (off of our first CD) titled, “A SONG UNSUNG” and if I can find a download, I’ll come back and post it here, either way, the song is about my biggest fear and that is squandering the relevance of time and talents. As you, I’ve only been given a short amount of time to achieve the things that are my purpose, and to be frank, I need several more lives in order to accomplish all that I enjoy, but, as I press forward towards the mark of my high calling, the things that truly make me happy move up to the front, and the other things find their place behind those. If I have the time left, I will do a variety of things, but, if I don’t, I will do what I am created to do, called to do, asked to do, blessed to do, and honored to do..Will you?
We are each a facet of GOD’S Glory (and sense of humor), and we are only given a moment in time before we return to our creator – The choice is up to you what you will do with your remaining days but I hope and pray it is in line with your FATHER’S brilliant design:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
Are we all prophets? No, but we are all a unique expression of our CREATOR’S character, and therefore, HE speaks through the work of our hands. So, go proclaim the greatness of GREAT GOD JEHOVAH and conquer your land. The clock ticks, and time moves forward whether you participate or not.
I used to think that I was necessary to the House of David and the LORD’S PLAN, and would threaten HIM that I was giving up my calling when I was upset about certain injustices, but as I matured, I came to know that while it saddens our FATHER when HIS kids accept less than HIS best, there’s always a remnant willing and waiting.
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11
I want mine, and I want you to have yours, so man up, get up, wipe off, and march on, because your audience awaits ♛
