The One About the White Stone

It’s amazing how easily we forget things that are really important!

Yesterday, I was given a white stone and it reminded me of something important that had helped and challenged me a few months ago.

I have been away at the excellent EBA Ministers conference and in a prayer meeting we were offered white stones as a reminder of the God’s words:

And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it. (Rev 2.17)

God sees this special name or description of who we are/who we can be and reflecting on this was a great reminder for me to consider how I can work with God to become the person who he crested me to be.

This verse had really spoken to me a few months ago (you can read about that if you like) but tragically I had forgotten. I was grateful for a reminder of something important.

gods not finished with me yetIt’s amazing the way that God is at work in us shaping and transforming our lives. As we follow his lead and join with him, we really can accomplish amazing things.

So,

Do you know who you are?

Do you understand who God created you to be?

If the answer is yes, then how are you living/working/changing/prioritizing to become that person?

It is so easy to forget what God has said to us in the busyness of life. I hope that we can continue to find ways of remembering what God is saying to us.

God knows who we really are, God sees the best in us and God understands the potential that we have and how we can realize it as we work with him.
