God has an assignment for you that nobody else can fulfill. God needs you. He needs your gifts, your smile, your love, your passion. You are a part of His divine plan. You have something to offer nobody else can offer. Nobody has your exact personality, your exact looks. There is something unique about you. Don’t wear that “average” label. If you think you’re average, then you’ll be average. If you think you’re ordinary, then you’ll live an ordinary, “get by life” and never do anything great.

The truth is, there is nothing ordinary about you. You have the fingerprints of God all over you. The Creator of the universe breathed His life into you. He crowned you with His favor. You have royal blood flowing through your veins. You have a destiny to fulfill, something greater than you’ve ever even imagined. Embrace His truth, embrace His love, and embrace the blessings He has in store for your future!

This piece was so emotional to create because I had to put myself there.  Have you ever really thought about it from that position?  I mean, we’ve taken communion, we’ve contemplated His sacrifice…But have you put yourself there and really considered the wounds and the chastisement and the affliction and the judgement and the oppression and the whipping and beating and bruising and pain He took as He siphoned all of our sins, illnesses, chains, and iniquities onto Himself?  Have you ever known someone who would do that?  Yes.  And He lives inside of you.  By the magnitude of what He did, He broke every chain in Hell, broke Death itself, set us free, forgave us, ascended into Heaven, and poured out His Spirit!  We are alive with Christ!  Forgiven!  Free!  Complete!  Righteous! Justified!  Cleansed!  Healed!  He did it all—there’s no way I could have fit everything He did on this wood.  Praise God.  He gave His one and only Son so we could have eternal life through Him.  He loved us that much.  And Jesus loved God the Father and US enough to not seek His own will and save Himself, but to choose death on a cross to become a substitute for us and accomplish all of the things we could never do.  Can’t even contain that love…And we aren’t meant to.  Let it overflow.  Let everyone experience His love in you!  

(Also, yes, I spelled whipped wrong.  And, for once in my life, I so don’t care, lol)
