This morning I was listening to all of creation rejoice the dawning of a new day and I was reminded of the rhythm of creation. The sun rises, the birds begin to sing welcoming the morning light, the slumber of night breaks forth to the beginning of a new opportunity to walk out our PURPOSE as we are given breath for yet another day. And I am reminded of the challenge each and every day to remember who we are and whose we are. We hit the ground running into our responsibilities and chores and we often neglect cherishing the presence of a living and loving God that gives us the identity as His sons and daughters. We exist as flesh and bone, but we THRIVE as spiritual beings that are designed in the image of the Creator; sustained by His very breath, set free and forgiven by the blood of His son, loved into eternity, and given the name of a “royal priesthood” as His very own. When we begin to cherish that legacy, the gift of grace, the power of hope, the treasure of love, the peace of provision, the joy of truly living in our identity and PURPOSE welcomes us into abundant living and the Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. Let’s push the RESET on our PURPOSE, set aside time to be “still and know”, rest in our identity and watch our spiritual lives begin to flourish and grow!
Blessings as you go,
Pastor Sherri Juliani
