Happy Valentine's Day! <3
Another great devotional today on who God is calling us all to be. Jennifer chose some powerful scriptures and also gave the link at the end for other great scriptures as well. I'm probably going to print that out and put it in my journal. So to cut to the chase, God is calling us to be Holy as God is Holy, honor Him with our bodies, and love as Jesus loves.
I especially loved the part about honoring God with our bodies. Since we are temples for the Holy Spirit to live within us, this encompasses physically being healthy but also mentally being confident and accepting. The being healthy part is actually in the Bible (thanks to The Daniel Plan for pointing that out to me prior to today). God calls us to be healthy and to take care of our bodies to honor Him. I think that is truly powerful in my life because I have also been called to help patients to become healthy through chiropractic and nutrition. Wow - it's definitely coming full circle for me in my life.
Jennifer also mentions that God is calling us to love His Word, meditate on it (which also means to repeat it in our head multiple times throughout the day), memorize it, saturate our souls with it and relish in the beauty of His call. As I am eager to learn more of God's truths, I'm also a little overwhelmed by that task that He is calling for me to do! I think there will be more Bible studies and devotionals in my future to help me with that.
Other callings Jennifer mentions on her linked page are that we are called to... be pure, to forgive, to be kind, to trust, to tithe, to be generous, to be faithful, to be monogamous, to pray, to flee temptation, to be humble, to teach, to not worry, and to not fear.
Are there any callings that and of you ladies struggle with daily? I struggle with (and need to work on) loving others as myself, forgiveness, not worrying, and not fearing.
