These verses have long been part of my favourites. This version highlights them in a different way for me. It highlights my part in this- not the effort that I need to make or the willpower I need to generate but the role that God has for each one of us to be part of the amazing things that He is doing. He invites us into that. It doesn't stop there, though. He transforms us from deep within to be able to do what we need to in this plan. He won't force this on us.
This week, my post on the fear of having missed your calling hit home for some. This is the verse that I want to share with you especially. His plans are far more than you can dream up or imagine. It might not look like what you have imagined. He invites you into that. Will you accept His invitation and allow Him access to do the transforming work within?
This post is part of a series for Write 31 Days called "For Your Encouragement." I am taking requests from readers on what they want encouragement about and responding to the best of my ability. I would love to hear from you.
