So often we look to the world to define us, to tell us if we’re good enough and if we’re doing things “right”. Now take a minute to think about how awesomely wrong that is. If you step back and take a long hard look at the world we live in, it is a bleeding gorey mess. The world is broken, why would you ever let it define who you “should” be?
So tonight I come to you with a challenge and an invitation!
First the challenge: I challenge you to take the time to redefine the standards that you live your life by. Redefine the influences that you let become that inner voice telling you how you’re doing. I challenge you to let the still small voice of God that whispers in your ear to become that defining force in your life. I know that it’s asking a lot to let go of the world’s view of you and cling to the invisible God’s view of you instead.
I believe that when you stop letting the world define you, and start letting God redefine you, you become a force to be reckoned with.
I would like to invite you to join me in my new series Life Redefined as I travel the road of redefining my own life by God’s standards.
