Your soul’s thumbprint
Wishing you a most amazing year this year as you wake up to new possibilities. It is my hope that you do what you have been afraid to do. Let’s pray audacious prayers of bold and impossible things to be done for us and through us. May this remind us who we really are. Not what others expect us to be, not who we pressure ourselves to become, but to simply remember who we were made to be, and who we were designed to be before life’s struggles warped our view. Promise me that every day when you first wake up, before you even open your eyes, that you will ask God to remind you who you truly are and for Him to give you the strength to walk like, talk like, and love like you.
There was a spirit deposit deep into your DNA when God knit you together in your mother’s womb. It is your true identity. It’s like your soul’s thumb print. It is an inscription into your heart, an impression into your psyche, a permanent tattoo into your being. It is the inscription of who you will be for all time. This is your spiritual marking, the blue print, the recipe, the design. And nothing can change it. No one can touch it. No power can destroy it. No person can scramble it. No loss can diminish it. No sin can void it. No mistake can minimize it. No enemy can foil it. No choice can change it.
God has placed within you all that you need to be this person. It is who you are and you know it in those moments of clarity and consciousness that come before you open your eyes in the morning. Before you think about what has been said to you and about you and the lies that you believed.
In your heart of hearts you know who you are, what your true purpose is, why you are here, and what you were made to do. Maybe you forgot, maybe you were asleep, maybe you started not to believe it anymore, maybe you compromised, maybe you gave up, maybe you decided not to try anymore. We all have times like those, but then we hear a distant calling, a whisper really. Maybe it’s something we hear riding on the wind, in the rustle of the leaves, or the deep cry of our own heart, but suddenly we remember. We remember who we are and we vow to never forget who we are again.
We determine to crawl, scratch, beg, gravel, and drag ourselves – if need be – but we will not spend one more second being someone other than the full force of who we really are. No excuses. No delays. No defeat. Just one singular, solitary, silent resolve to never look back, never let up, never give in, and never say never. At this time, in this moment, on this day you determine to be 100% all in, holding nothing back, and settling for nothing less than all of you.
