Big God

January 12, 2007

We are not promised a single day, nor is our time to leave this life known to us. As I pass through I pray that I can be someone who touches people in a deep way, impacting them for eternity. I want to be known for the light I have in me–not my successes, not my achievements nor my determination and talents, nor my niceness and sweetness, but for the light that radiates out of me due to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is my all, my everything. He is what gives me Life.

Flipping through some photo albumns from high school and little notes people wrote, I realize that this life is so fleeting. Touched by the memories and the people who’ve impacted my life and character, I realized that I want to be a woman of impact. I suppose I’ve always desired this, but now that I have the Lord in my life, this desire resides in me with an even greater ferver and passion. Someone recently told me, “You’re a person who walks through life touching people as you go.” This blessed me as I desire to shed light in people’s lives, letting them know the greater One and the greater Life.

It’s funny because I have no idea who reads this blog, and quite frankly, I’d be okay if no one read it or if even just one person read it. Maybe people who knew me in high school read this and maybe not… either way, I can testify that the Lord has changed my life completely. There is a real God who is intimately involved with our lives and desires relationship with us. It’s not until we humble ourselves and quiet ourselves long enough to hear Him that we realize He’s there and has been all along. It’s not about meditating and taking your mind off everything. It’s not about looking within and finding the god in you. (I’ve already been down that path to a deadend) It’s not about success, money, power, self. It’s not about being good and trying your best. It’s about a relationship with our Creator and allwoing Him to transform us and give us a heart like His. It’s about knowing Him and making Him known.

It would be arrogant to think that you could figure out God in this lifetime. He is so big (for lack of a better word) that we will be discovering who He is for all eternity as we are in relation with Him. However, He has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit which reveals who He is.

Lord, may we humble ourselves before you. May I die to myself… may I decrease and You increase!

Deuteronomy 29:29 “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.”

Job 11:7 “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?”

Daniel 2:47 “The king said to Daniel, ‘Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.'”

John 14:26 “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
