Your Life Speaks

Did you know that your life communicates with others all the time?

If I were to watch a silent, black and white video of you walking through your day, what would your life say to me?

When Team Jesus Magazine publisher and CEO, Kim Bright(ness), said she was naming this column Her Life Speaks, it was a smirk and raised eyebrow kind of moment (see my first article, Knotted Up) because only God can give those kinds of “I know your heart” surprises.

Above all else, I want people to look at me and see that I am a Christ worshipper and follower, and preferably see this without my having to utter a word.

But, as we all know, God is a God of levels. Once we pass a test, it’s time to move forward to the next.

Find Your Life’s Voice

I’ve heard and read some interesting quotes that I think indicate the passing of one level and the beginning of another. I’d like to share them with you, along with questions for you to ponder:

“You’re dishonest with the truth of who you are and what you really legitimately want. Why are you praying and believing for something that you’re hyper-resistant to believe? You need a spanking that wakes you up out of small thinking and safe living and sameness that makes you beige in a world that’s asking for you to be red hot.” -Allyson Byrd

If beige was a 0 and red hot was a 10, what number would you rate your life?

Jesus’ life was red hot. If you’re living “beige”, what was He doing that you’re not doing?
If Jesus lives in you, what example of His do you need to follow more?

 

If you want to make a significant impact in the lives of others, you better find your voice and be brave enough to use it. -Joe Duncan

In his book, The 8th Habit, Stephen R. Covey says that when you engage in work (professional, community, family) that taps your talent and fuels your passion—work that rises out of a great need in the world that you feel drawn by conscience to meet—therein lies your voice, your calling, your soul’s code.

Have you discovered your voice?
How can you use it more?

 

We’re all born individuals but too many of us die copy cats.
-Skylar Diggins-Smith

Do you remember yourself as a child?
In what ways were you freer then?
If your younger self met you now, what would she tell you?
When’s the last time you did something original or unique?

 

“There’s trouble ahead when you live only for the approval of others, saying what flatters them, doing what indulges them. Popularity contests are not truth contests—look how many scoundrel preachers were approved by your ancestors! Your task is to be true, not popular. -Jesus (Luke 6:26)

In what ways are you living a lie? Who are you at your core? How can she show up more often?

So, What’s the Play Call?

Your life is always communicating something to onlookers. Make sure that as it speaks, it’s saying what God created it to say.
