Yesterday was day two of a pretty rough day with a migraine headache. I was back in bed at 11am. Bummer. The pain seemed to let up some later in the afternoon, but I was still feeling quite fragile...hard to think, difficult to persevere, exhausting to every fiber of my soul, mind, heart and body.
This morning is much, much better. Whew. I was able to read and soak in a sweet Devotional and song another dear friend sent me earlier. I was reading/praying through the Scripture with my highlighters in one hand and my coffee in the other.
Then I sat back and worshipped before our Heavenly Father with the song my friend deemed to fit beautifully with the accompanying Scripture. Oh how the brief, pointed words of the song seemed to be coming straight from the loving Holy Spirit to my parched heart, mind, and body.
You see, whether you know this or not, all my life I have struggled with “feeling/being good enough.” (Lots of hurtful stories in my elementary-high school years that would attest to that. If you’d like, I invite you to read more here. https://www.head2heartonward.com/about-me)
Thus the passion God has given me to serve others with my coaching so they may enjoy the support and intentionality of another to embrace and experience the incredible joy of living aligned to their God-given design.
John Denver’s song, “No One Like You” (link below) is powerful (and way too short🙃 as I wanted to savor the words as though they were from the lips of God himself) I should set it on “forever replay.”😂
In fact, “forever replay” is Biblical. John 15:7 says His Words ought to abide IN us. “Abide”...”forever replay.”
Furthermore, this song could very well be words uttered from the mouth of God as Ephesians 2:10 are Words that attest to the Truth in Denver’s song that:
We are each, individually, designed as His masterpiece...one of a kind and loved to the uttermost!
We are EACH given lasting purpose and a uniquely-tailored mission-assignment to complete with Him!
May today’s blog post of Truth & song be for you a long-lasting reminder that you are loved, delighted in and designed for by the God of the Universe to be a Divine Display of Him no matter where you are, what you’ve done, how you feel...because He made YOU on purpose, with purpose, for purpose...and empowered always with Divine, all-sufficient Grace.
Psalms 115:1 (NIV)
Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
