made for more


more….something greater…beyond….better…exceeding…above and beyond


you
were
made
for
more

ever have that feeling…that you were just made for more than “this” (whatever ‘this’ is in your life)?
I think, if I might add, that this feeling is different from not being content where you are, with what you have.
it is a yearning to be more, to be someone greater than who you are, to do something above and beyond what you’ve always done
to just be more.
maybe this concept is not fully described with words….maybe you indeed have to feel it to know it

but, my friends, we were made for more!
I am not sure what that looks like in your life…
I’m not entirely sure what it looks like in my own

we are not stuckthe Help
we are not meaningless
we are not meant to be small all of the time (k tennant)

you are kind
you are smart
you are important…why do we not believe that about ourselves?
trust God that it is true!

you were made for more.

“Whatever Satan is using to bind you, Jesus came to free you. Free from…and free to. I can’t say that enough. For far too long we’ve looked at freedom only in terms of what we are free from. But freedom encompasses so much more than a shedding of chains. Jesus set us free to live the abundant life by being all He has created us to be and accomplishing all that He has planned for us to do.” – Sharon Jaynes

we are made to be free!

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. – Ephesians 3:20 (MSG)

“I was made for more than being stuck in a vicious cycle of defeat.  I am not made to be a victim of my poor choices.  I was made to be a victorious child of God.” – Lysa Terkeurst

we are not made
to wallow in self-pity
to allow our past choices to paralyze us – emotionally, spiritually, or physically

our lives, more importantly, our relationship with Christ “…can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” – Soren Kierkegaard

you were made for more
I am made for more

so, now what?
take that step…
make that phone call
fill out that application
read that book
search for that job
do the thing that scares you

So what are you waiting for? What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities,  they try to hold to you
But you know you’re made for more, so don’t be afraid  to move –
Britt Nicole, Walk on the Water

 

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that. – Jeremiah 29:11 (the Voice)

 

learning the unforced rhythms of grace….
