Post Easter Celebrating

Happy Monday to you!
On a day like today (one that follows a day like yesterday...Easter) it's easy to get back into the routine and forget about all that God has done for us that the weekend symbolized.

Let this post serve as your reminder.
Jesus suffered through all that pain and agony on the cross so that you might fulfill your destiny in Him.
Our job now, is to rest in the person He created us to be, draw closer to Him daily, and sit back and watch Him use us in ways we could never imagine!

"if you're content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself." Luke 14:11 
I remember the morning I found this verse in the Message Bible. I read it, and re-read it, and read it again churning it's simplicity in my mind.

That's all God expects from us-to simply be ourselves. And why not? He created who we are down to what kind of clothes we would like or what color our hair would really be. Why wouldn't He want us to relax into the person He so lovingly knit together?

What's so beautiful about this verse besides that, is the fact that once we learn to relax as ourselves then we become more than ourselves-just typing those words gets me so excited because it's like a free gift.

He's saying-"Just BE and in return I will make you BETTER!" It's so simple and so rewarding, and really the most fantastic spiff of all-just be you.

It doesn't matter what people are wearing in Paris or New York or whether gray is the new black, if you don't like it don't wear it. Nestle down into that skin of yours and love who you are and it won't matter what you're wearing because you will walk and talk like the beautiful creation God created you to be.

He loves you so much, walk tall in that revelation today!
