Range – A portion of the range of the instrument or voice.
Jeremiah 29:11 NLT – “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
According to Wikipedia: In music, the range of a musical instrument is the distance from the lowest to the highest pitch it can play. For a singing voice, the equivalent is vocal range. The range of a musical part is the distance between its lowest and highest note.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.–St. Augustine
There is only one you. God broke the mold when He made you. Even if you are a twin, there is still only one person totally like you. There is only one person with all of your experiences, all of your memories, all of your quirks. “God made you special, and He loves you very much!” God created you for a special purpose, a special task, a special project. He also gave your life limits. You can only do so much! You can only learn so much! You can only meet so many people! You will live a certain amount of time! You can only text so many people!
God already knows the plans that He has for you. He has good stuff for you. We have a place in the great symphony of God’s creation. Our lives were specially designed to fit a certain “register.” Some people may rise higher than we do. Some people may go lower than we do. We were created to be the person that God wants us to be. Who we can be in God has to be explored. We need to push out and do as much as God has planned for us. We need to discover what we were created for. And, it all starts with, ends at, includes, depends on, survives because, lasts while, exists because, is fulfilled by God.
Questions to think about:
- Have we completely discovered God’s purpose for our lives?
- Have we thanked God for His loving creation of us?
- Now, that we have talked about how special we are, is there something that we are doing that we need to stop doing to God’s special creation?
Dear God, thank You for me. Thank You for everything that You have done for me. Thank You for the plans of my life. Thank You for my abilities and limitations. Amen.
