Day 19: Who You Are Called To Be

Good Morning ladies!
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.


  1. Happy Valentine's Day Ladies! I hope you are all having a great Friday!

    Reading up on the callings of God leaves big shoes for us to fill. I loved how Jennifer used the analogy in her video today about God calling on my phone. Am I letting His call just go to voicemail? Am I hitting the ignore button. Yes, I have in many areas of my life. Some of God's callings for us come to each of us easier and more natural to us than others. And those might be different for everyone because each of us has strengths and weaknesses and God- given talents and gifts.

    I spent some time reading through the scriptures posted on the Unveiled Wife website. I wanted to share a few that really spoke to me. These are verses I need to mediate on and commit to memory. The scriptures below are also God's callings that I need to improve on.

    “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13

    “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

    “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10

    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” Matthew 6:25

    Trista, I am already getting sad thinking about the fact that we only have about 10 more days of this study. I am up for maybe doing another women's study if anyone else is? I don't have anything in particular in mind but I know there are some great ones out there. And we don't have to start it up like the next day as soon as this one ends or anything.

  2. Matthew 22:36-37 says " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind." That verse is so powerful! So what does it mean to love the Lord with every part or you? For me, it means to begin to love the way God loves, think the way God thinks, and act the way God acts. I know that learning to love the Lord with my heart, soul, and mind will be a continual process that will last throughout my entire life. I pray to not be disappointed if I am not transformed overnight. I need to remember that this is a process that will take time. Each day I hope to become more and more like God by using my body to do his work.

    I found a quote that seemed very fitting that I would like to share with you all. "Imitation is the highest form of adoration." I vow to be an imitator of God!

  3. Ah Michelle... I love that quote. It is perfect!
