She was different and she knew it!
Called to be set apart.
Agonized as she futilely attempted to assimilate.
Conformity antiquated but common…Distinction uncomfortable yet alluring.
Fitting in, concealing her perspicuous characteristics, masking her shine, definitely not what HE ordained.
HE didn’t create her to be like anyone else!
Over the course of time, GOD intentionally allowed specific issues to surface in her life.
Her whole heart HE desired.
HE challenged her.
Still, she pursued HIM!
Refining her…Pruning her…Infusing her with the confidence to stand boldly in who HE says she is.
Chaos in euphoria!
Grappling with a barrage of obstacles seemingly, naturally insurmountable.
Exasperated, she questioned the extent of HIS testing!
“How much longer, JESUS?”
The HOLY SPIRIT convicted her…causing her significant discomfort…birthing in her humility…rendering her…
“Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the LORD…and, I will be a FATHER to you, and you will be MY sons and daughters, says the LORD ALMIGHTY.” 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 NIV
“I praise YOU because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; YOUR works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from YOU when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. YOUR Eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in YOUR Book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:14-16 NIV
