Pause

Love can speak without a single word. Love speaks in dance, missions, art, nature, civil protests, and relationships. With God, you have a voice. Through you, God speaks to the world.

So pause and ask, how is God speaking through you?

Listen

The Lord responded, “Don’t say, ‘I’m only a child.’ Where I send you, you must go; what I tell you, you must say. Don’t be afraid of them, because I’m with you to rescue you,” declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 1:7-8

Think

Step up, rise up, and speak out. You have no excuse. Period. That’s what God was saying to Jeremiah and that’s what God is saying to you. You are called to speak no matter your circumstances or your limitations. The world needs you.

An unknown author once said, “God does not call the qualified. God qualifies the called.”

Have faith knowing that God can and will use you to bring heaven to earth. The call is difficult, and the journey is challenging, but you are capable of doing amazing things. That is how God made you. So don’t bother with any excuses, because you are better than that. Instead, step up, rise up, and speak out.

Pray

Lord, work in me so that others may see you through me. Give me the strength to step up, rise up, and speak out. Amen.

Go

Francis Assisi once said, “Preach the Gospel at all times; when necessary use words.”

May God walk with you, work in you, and speak through you because of the life you live.
