God created us to be dynamic. He created us to live out loud. That doesn’t mean we are obnoxious and in peoples’ faces all the time. It does, however, mean that the way we live our lives should scream love and passion, even if words are not necessarily spoken at first. Words eventually need to be spoken, but our lives should provide the context through which those words are understood.
What does it mean to be dynamic? It means that every single day I wake up and spend deep quality time with the Source of my passion. It means that every single day I ask God for opportunities and open doors to show love and I actively look for them. It means that every single time those opportunities come into my life, I respond with courage and obedience. It means sacrifice. It means being creative in how I reach out and touch each individual life. It means choosing to be fearless in the face of something that has the potential of paralyzing me. It means that I trust God with my future so I am free to fully be His hands and feet today.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “In order for one to learn the important lessons of life, one must first overcome a fear each day.” I have learned that every day, short as it may be, holds many obstacles to face and challenges to conquer. I recognize in myself the tendency to procrastinate doing many things. However, God is teaching me to be a woman of action who responds immediately to the nudges of His Spirit. There is always an excuse; there is always a reason to wait until later. However, someone who lives a dynamic life knows and understands from Whom her strength comes and that if He calls her to act, He will give her everything she needs to complete that action with excellence.
One of the most dynamic people I know is a 91-year-old lady who spends her days encouraging people, praying for people, and loving on people. She has done this for years. All who know her experience a warming in their hearts whenever her name is mentioned, because they have been touched by her love, joy, and passion for Jesus. She has shown me that I don’t need a stage to be dynamic; I simply need a heart that is so full of Jesus that it can’t keep Him contained. I want to be that woman – in front of people and in private – who pours her life out in love for others. I want people to see in me the richness of humility and passion. I want them to see simplicity and purity of heart. I want to be dynamic.
How is God calling you to be dynamic today? Decide to open the door to His voice and decide to live your life in response to His love. It will amaze you what God is able to pour into and out of your life.
