In the volumes of His books, it was written concerning me...


Did you know that God wrote something about you? That He wrote about your exploits, your triumphs, and your battles? That He already established your uniqueness as different from everyone else in the world? (Psalm 139:16, "Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed; and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned before me, when as yet there were none of them."
.
And so I was reflecting very hard today after church, that if certain people can go through certain bad situations and still come out on top, still firmly rooted and grounded in God, still standing strong....then who am I not to do the same? If there is truly something written about me, then I must ascend to the stage and grab my award. I must accomplish everything that was written ABOUT ME before time even began. I must not be less than what I am supposed to be...it is up to me to come out on top, from whatever trials or circumstances I find myself...it is not over until God says it is over...
.
Wielded in very turbulent currents of waters
Wrapped around an array of thorns
Wrung as a rose strangled in the midst of thorns
Yet still, I am a character in the book of God.
.
Understanding and prophesying only in part
Seeking knowledge like a deer pants for water
Asking for wisdom like a sick man asks for healing
Yet still, I am a character in the book of God.
.
Finding myself seems to be an arduous task
When it seems as though everyone else has found what they were searching for
Pressing forward when I can't even see my way ahead
Yet still, He wrote about me and so I must keep on marching forward.
.
I feel a strong burden on me that some of us don't know we are GREAT!
Even before TIME, God wrote about you,
and He didn't just write about your weaknesses,
but He also wrote about the way you overcame those weaknesses,
I feel a burden that someone is GIVING UP...
if you can't do anything else,
just trust that God knows what He is doing...
and He understands those secret things He wrote about you...
God is also a BLOGGER...
Have you read His blog about you?
He is a WRITER, a POET, and an ARCHITECT,
I'm so glad He has me in His works...

true talk jaycee.

that someone might be me, these days its kinda like am btw a rock and a hard place, and giving up is more appealing than going on...it's also funny that just this morning i was thinking along these same lines and concluded that God is a Story-teller...and history is HIS-STORY. thank God this story is already finished, like you said in the book is how i overcame this present valley....

Reminding myself of the Great things He's written concerning me, even if its about overcoming keeps me going and still in the race. Refusing to give up until that which He has written I have attained.

Jaycee said...

@ disGod...that's why it's an excellent thing to always remind each other of these things that are written. I understand how u feel, because sometimes I feel that way too...giving up can be more appealing than continuing the journey. Oh, but when I think of God waiting for me on the other side...lol...I just keep on climbing my mountain...

@ Ugo...thank God. I pray that God will bless u mightily throughout this week, in Jesus Name. Amen. :)

@ Ashe Selah...it's like reading the pages of a "SUPENSE NOVEL," right??? Lolll...
