Then came the hummingbird....
I know, left field, right? But this hummingbird came along and it hovered over my window quickly drinking nectar and being busy enjoying what it was intended to do. I don't know if the hummingbird had a good life or a tough one, but what I did know is that the hummingbird was going about doing what he was created to do. Then it flew off.
Too often, we base our trust on God by what he does for us. The prayers that He answers. We base how much we are successful or how much he loves us by the amount he does for us.
What if instead we based our worth by what we were created to do? Did you ever have someone tell you that you weren't qualified? I have, and if you are not careful you will begin to believe those things. Sometimes people want you to be lower than they, so they say anything they can to put you in a bracket beneath them. You try all you can to reach the level of those people and try to prove them wrong, but you can never make that level. You beat yourself up and you start to believe that you really aren't qualified, that you really aren't good enough.
Until the hummingbird arrives.....
Now you realize that you could never reach that level, because that level was imaginary. It doesn't really exist. It's superficial. It's a world mark that doesn't exist. That's why you will never reach it.
What you need to focus on instead is what you were created to do. Now this is where you will find success. It may not be financial, it may not be answered prayers, it may not even be easy. But it will be right. You were created to be who God created you to be, not who your insecure leaders want you to pretend to be. Then you flew off, enjoying what you were intended to be!
Have a great day friends!
