YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE

When the Writer let’s her gift lie dormant for a year… she picks up the page where she once left off… she picks up the dream once again…and reminds herself;

You Were Made For More:

“There is a God whisper that calls out to your soul… stretching across time and space, reverberating in the halls of destiny, echoing your name. He calls to you. The Great One. The Creator. The One who was and is and is to come. He calls you by name. He separates the cosmos and peals back the terrestrial canopy to gaze upon your very existence. He is the one they call Emmanuel. He is the God with us. And if he is the God with us he can never be the God without us. He has forever forged his Divine Spirit in union with the spirit of humanity and declares, “You were made for more!”

You dust of the Earth that I formed and fashioned with my very own hands. You that I breathed the very atmosphere of Heaven into your lungs. You that I crowned with authority and dominion. You are forever mine. You have captured my heart, and I will not let go. 

This is how the Father, God sees you. You may not see yourself in the same exact light, but if we take a moment to remember what the Scripture says we will find that He knew us even before we were formed in our mothers wombs (Psalm 139:13, Jer. 1:5). I like a more romanticized picture when I think about how God views me and my life. I’m a dreamer. He moves Heaven and Earth to reach me, so I know he does the same for you.”

  1. Hi Brynn,
    this spoke to me so clearly. At the beginning of last year I lost my client and moved to another position which is so much more demanding. I found that I just couldn’t make time for God. Then on my last visit to South Africa a friend prayed for me and said to me that it is time to go back to God. It is a slow process because I am still figuring it all out but I know that it is right.
    Blessings

    Just reading this blog from France where I live with my husband and my little girl, I just finish to listen to your teaching on youtube about dreams !! it is so helpful thank you so much for it. I had two longs years (after the birth of my little girl) where I felt that I was not really pursuing the lord, but still he was pursuing me.I finally feels like it is a new season to pick back the gifts that we have in the holy spirit and share it with the body. Thank you for this article ! so timely 🙂
