As mentioned in the post about why I started this blog (you can read more about that here) I have been part of a class at my church called WILD (Women in Leadership Development). One week we were told to write a short devotional and share it with someone. If you have never done anything like this before, I highly encourage trying it. I pray this devotional encourages you today!
Did you know the numbers of color combinations in the world are endless? This is because color is affected by the amount of lighting, other colors in the picture and even the person viewing the colors. Can you imagine how boring and dull our world would look if God had created only one color?
One afternoon as I was having my quiet time and sharing my insecurities with the Lord He gave me an idea to ask my daughters, ages 4 & 6, to color pictures. One picture I instructed them to color all one color and the other picture they could use as many colors as they wanted. He showed me that He created us all unique and assigned us a special color, or purpose, that only we can fulfill. When we compare our bodies, gifts, talents, careers, passions and more to others and try to be their “color” then we are missing the call on our lives and failing to display God’s true beauty to the world.
As Genesis 1:27 tells us, we were created in the image of God. What color did God create you to be that is a reflection of Him?
Pray: Dear God, thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made for a unique purpose that only I can fulfill. Please forgive me for comparing myself to others. Show me how to use my color to paint a beautiful masterpiece that only you can fulfill. In Jesus name, Amen.
