In our Women’s Section, we try to publish a quote or a reﬂection that will lead you to meditate on it. Some are joyful, others bring fun and smiles and a few others cause us to ponder over our life.
I heard something recently that struck me deep inside “I love the Lord and what He has done in me and for me, but the best thing is watching what He has done through me.” And these few words are echoing in my mind more like a reminder of what being a real Christian should be like. What the Lord has done in us and for us is unquestionable. Just take a look at your past life; how many disappointments, frustrations, complexes, fears, insecurities, grudges, heartbreaks and look at you now!
You may not be enjoying a perfect life but you will have to acknowledge that changes are undeniable. You are no longer that old and fragile being; you stand now tall and ﬁrm as a Child of God qualifying not only for temporary blessings but also for eternity with Him.
Up to this point of the sentence, I was ﬁne and able to agree with every word but the striking part came when I challenged myself about what is the Lord able to do through me.
It is one thing to accept His grace, mercy and love and His life poured out for me but another thing to be able to lay down my life to reﬂect His glory and power. And that requires sacriﬁce! God will not be able to use us if our will prevails over His. We will live the course of our lives not leaving a mark on this world, not impacting others, not making any difference.
Can you acknowledge what God is doing in your life and for you? But mostly is God able to do anything further through you? Each day must count and each day brings up the opportunity to be God’s tool. Think about that.
