Chapter 1

If you and  I want to make history this year by the way that we live and the choices that we make, I believe that we need to start at the source of living.  God has some pretty amazing things to say about the role you and I have to play in His Kingdom.

The truth is that you and I have forgotten, in a sense, who we really are.  We’ve become caught up in worries and fears and lists to the point that we’ve lost our identity and our purpose.

I hope to use the Tuesdays of 2012 to remind us all of WHOSE we are and WHOM we were created to be.  You are loved more than you could imagine and created for more than you could possibly dream.

Remember that you are more than the horrible mistakes that you made last year.

Remember that you were designed for far more than celebrity gossip and the latest fads.

Remember that you were created by the ultimate Creator.

Remember that your Father says…

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; 
   I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. 
 I will build you up again, 
   and you… will be rebuilt.”  Jeremiah 31:3-4, NIV

Spend time today acknowledging the fears, worries, and sin that held you captive in the past year.  Recite Jeremiah 31:3-4 out loud.  The spoken word (especially God’s Word) is powerful!  Remind yourself that living out an amazing story is possible because of the love and sacrifice of Jesus.  Speak out your desire for God to rebuild you once again.
