"Behold I am doing a new thing, do you not perceive it?"
Did any of these people from the Bible/History plan the powerful ways they would impact the world?
Esther. Martin Luther King. Abraham Lincoln. Mary Mother of Jesus. David. Ghandi. Mother Theresa.
There are also many names and stories of peoples live's who impacted our world that we will never know.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded You. Behold I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
-Matthew 28, The Great Commission.
Your greatest purpose is to Love and Worship God and make disciples, but I wonder how else He will use your life for Him?
The famous woodblock print featured below is called, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa".
When a surfer is getting ready to be carried up by a wave they sit and wait. But they know it is coming.
That's how I feel right now like I've been waiting just now God is causing the water to begin to rise.
Here is a poem I wrote about it:
Take me Wave
my fingers inch deep in You Ocean
i feel the rush of purple notions come to me
as bubbles between my toes
lightly the Wind blows
and i breathe Him in
His salty flavor
invigorating my mind for adventure
like the waking of a sleeping volcano
or spring aching to feel the melt of a winter morning
am suddenly aware a change is coming
Here is the Navy Wave with His white uncontrollable laughter
I feel Him with me as He lifts us up and we are floating
on a wall of water
gravity's pull cannot slow us down now
Closer to the Sun than ever
My hair feels like feathers
light on my back
Oh the complete freedom I have
I see my skin brown
against Your blue
I feel beautiful with You.
Something new is here for the life of Soulspeak and I am excited.
It's still God, Giving, and Creating.
More to come……..
What's yours saying?
