Created For a Purpose

Making Me In Your Image

{These graphics are free for you to enjoy}

A brand is defined as, “a unique sign, design, symbol, words or a combination of these used to create a certain image.” Every company, product, and even most blogs have a brand.

In order to brand, a person must pick a specific age group, logo, and cause they want to target. If a company or person tries to create a product for everyone, they won’t be able to sell it because not all of their “audience” can use it.

When a company defines their brand it defines their mission. After they create their brand, then they create products to fit their cause.

God has branded us with specific gifts and talents too.

There are so many times I compare myself to others because they have gifts I feel I don’t. It’s so important for us to remember that we were created for a purpose and it won’t look very different than our sister, friend, or co- worker. If we don’t have a certain gift, that’s okay because God has given us gifts that fit the work He has for us.

God defined our mission and cause before we were born. When he thought us into being he picked our gifts based on what audience he wants us to reach.

He understood that hospitality or thinking to give a teacher a gift on the first day of school was last on our priority list. He knows that it’s okay to lack in certain areas, because in the areas He has gifted us in- we will excel.

Here’s my brand (or what I am good at): Hanging out with teenagers, mentoring, helping the broken, encouraging people through tough times, planting seeds deep into a persons soul by encouraging them in order to help them stand strong when trials come.

By defining my brand (or what God has created me to do) I have the ability to combat the adversaries lies. When I feel my friend seems to pray better than I do or that I talk too much (and trust me, i’ve beat myself up for that a lot) I simply remember, it’s okay because, God is using me with the gifts he has given.

Friend, we weren’t created on accident. God put a lot of thought into us. Don’t you think for a second that He left something out…  Have you defined your “Brand” I would love to hear it! Feel free to tell me on the comments below. 🙂

    Thank you, Lovelle. This is just what ai’m dealling with right now. The Lord has asked me to write books about what HE says to me. He’s had me journaling about the prayers and conversations I’ve had with Him over the years.

    I’ve struggled to want to do it just about the whole time. I’ve struggled with the image is have in my mind of what my life will be like if I go through to completion. All good things, but not what I’ve hoped for. And seeing other people, even Christians, living their Ives with gifts I wish I had makes it hard to accept what He gave me.

    I’m trying to think thankful, positive thoughts and be grateful for who He made me to be, and look forward to the life God wants me to have. Thank you for reminding me that I was made the way I need to be, to do what I was created to do.

      Thanks for your honesty Tuesday! Girl, I feel you. It’s a daily struggle. It takes time to knock those lies out but once we call them out for what they are it slowly gets better. I’m working on the same thing. Know that you are in my prayers. 😊

    Love this post, Lovelle! I am so thankful God gifted each one of us, individually. It made me think of the passage in the New Testament about the hands, eyes, etc., of the body. If we were all the same, Christ’s body could not function the way He needs it to. Thank you for sharing what God laid upon your heart…it was a blessing to me!

      Thanks for your encouragement Cheryl! If I am thinking correctly, the scripture you are referencing is 1 Corinthians 14. It talks about all the spiritual gifts and how we are made individually with different gifts as the body of Christ and how all our differences work together. If that is what you are talking about then you and I think alike because that is exactly what I was thinking when I wrote this. You made my day. 😊
