~Day 17 ~ “The Dash”
As we live in and move through this life, the worldly calendar of 2013 is moving to a close…..and as you reflect and prepare for the New Year, we charge you to begin thinking about……what have you done for the kingdom to support the DASH for your life??? In the bible, we find in the book of (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
3 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
How have you chosen to spend 2013 encouraging and giving God all the Glory in your Marriage??? Your family??? Your friendships??? Have you used this time to reflect the love of Christ or have you spent this entire year worrying about tomorrow?
We all know that a “dash” can describe a hyphenation of two names, or a representation of subtraction in arithmetic or via social media it can mean a “pause” or hesitation. In our Marriages, every day that we choose to remain in Love, and committed to our covenant vow, and trusting God to transform our lives as husband and wife. These moments are unique commitments to form and transform our “dash”. We believe that these are opportunities that our love is not only transformed into His purpose. If we choose to shut-down the noise we have to remember that He speaks godly instructions as to how the “dash” with and for His will. God can raise the “salt & light” of our lives and transform miracles into all that He desires it to be. Will you use these remaining days of 2013 to surrender to His will?
This year for all us all, has been filled with so many opportunities to forgive, to uplift, to encourage, to show charity, to seek purpose and to even help someone less fortunate than ourselves. Will you truly walk in the way God wants you to go? Serving others, giving of yourselves selflessly, represent our eternal dash. Take a moment to reflect on this “DASH” as you read today’s this point of power. Our prayer is that you would seek God in a super-natural way today, that you would allow God to reveal to you any area that you may have fallen short, and repent immediately. He is waiting with open arms and ready to extend to you His grace and truth. Now, make a conscious effort from this moment on to seek opportunities to walk in grace and truth towards every opportunity that is presented to you this week, don’t let an opportunity to be the “salt & light” of this world from this moment on. This year, 2013 cannot be reversed nor will it ever happen again. God is the author and finisher of your faith, choose to make your “dash” a special part of the kingdom.
Allow God to transform your purpose, and praise into an intricate “DASH” for His glory.
