Hey there co-heir👋🏽. There’s something that keeps you awake at night, it’s purpose burning in your bones- a place God has called you uniquely to stand, love, serve and demonstrate Him to the world. Pictures of a future that God has planted in your heart keep flashing, there’s a tug on your heart, a burden you can’t quite shake pulling you in a particular direction. For some of us it isn’t conventional and we’re eventually bullied out of purpose by traditions and expectations of men that make us take what God has shown us and try to fit it into a particular frame of what the world, even believers consider mainstream but your purpose is your purpose even if no human understands it.
“Think of it this way. If the whole body were just an eyeball, how could it hear sounds? And if the whole body were just an ear, how could it smell different fragrances? But God has carefully designed each member and placed it in the body to function as he desires.”
1 Corinthians 12:17-18 TPT
If my entire body was filled with ears and I didn’t have a tongue I wouldn’t be able to taste ice cream( that’ll be terrible), I wouldn’t be able to taste the varieties of dishes that leave me breathless. If I didn’t have ears, I’d never be able to feel the sonorous percussion of Steffany Gretzinger’s voice hit my eardrums or have such ethereal experiences listening to music.
The same way in the body of Christ, God has created us with diverse giftings and contributions to the body so we all grow into full maturity but this is designed in such a way that we are edified by you fulfilling your specific purpose. We are strengthened to fulfill our own callings when we experience the distinct kind of beauty and wisdom from God that you display. Sometimes people look at you as weird and ask questions but all that matters is God’s instructions, following the leading of His Spirit while rebelling against the tide. Don’t hide because the world cannot comprehend it yet, dive deep into the fullness of all you were created to be in Christ
The body was fashioned to be interdependent, we’re to come with our different, diverse colors and shapes painting masterpieces for the kingdom demonstrating His love and grace in the capacity that He’s given us.
Don’t rob us of the magic you carry, don’t hold back no matter how unconventional your calling looks. It is God that has called you knowing your background, experiences and personality, He called you with all these in mind to edify us. We really do need you.
