MVP - What Makes Me a Valuable Player in God's Kingdom
What makes me so special and unique that I am valuable to God? Nothing that I can think of. I’m just being honest. I have done nothing or been through anything that another woman hasn’t already endured. Have I experienced hell? Yes, and so have many other women. Have I overcame huge obstacles in my life? Yes, but who hasn’t. There is nothing special about me in the eyes of the public. I’m only 31 years old. I am a mother of 4 amazing children; an 8 year old boy, twin 4 year old boys and a 3 year old girl. I’m married and soon will be celebrating 10 years of happy & holy matrimony. I am and educator. (Teaching is my Gift. I can teach anyone ANYTHING!) But again, none of these characteristics set me apart from other “players” in God’s Kingdom. Nothing makes me different. Being Christian isn’t a automatic ticket to heaven. Let alone a way to win the prestigious title of MVP. Can people tell that God is all in my life by the way I carry myself? Sure! I’ve been told on many occasions. That qualifies me to be a part of God’s Kingdom, but that’s not a sure thing either. I love the Lord and believe in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and that Jesus died for me. But that sounds so typical. Not like MVP material at all.
Now that I know, or at least feel, that I am a player in God’s Kingdom, I ask myself why not a Most VALUABLE Player. It’s because I feel broken. I feel lost. I’m more conscious and awake of the world. I feel like Eve after she ate the forbidden fruit. My eyes are too open. My visions are to clear, yet confusing at the same time. I feel like my spirit is trying to tell me something my mind can’t comprehend. There’s something going on in the Spirit that I can’t quite put my finger on. Things are moving and stirring. And it hasn’t heated up yet. So I just rest in God. I just rest in God. I am not worthy to work in God, so I just rest in Him.
I am a Most Valuable Player in God’s Kingdom because I am. Simply because I am. I cannot lean on my own understanding in determining if I am a MVP. I just have to trust God that I am. And know that I am. I am broken, but I am also fixable and mendable. My soul isn’t filled with self, but ready to be filled with Him. I am a Most Valuable Player not because of who I am today, but because of who I have the potential to be tomorrow. With God, I can perform miracles so great people would call them magic. I am unstoppable with God. My spirit cannot be contained. I am like a pawn in chess. I may start off weak in the beginning, but once I make it to the other side, I can become anything. Even a Queen if I choose.
I am valuable to God because I am His.
I AM HIS.
