What do you think of when you hear the word, reinvention?
Here were my first (second and third) thoughts:
1) You are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
2) The Kingdom of Heaven is within you (Luke 17:21).
3) You can do all things through God. His power is strongest in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Summation: If you are a Christ-follower, your life has already been reinvented. You are whole, you are complete, and you are perfect in the eyes of the Lord. You have only to claim who you are created to be and walk in your calling!
I asked Sherry if I could post her notes from the talk she gave at SHE LEADS – HER VOICE (Her-Voice.org) titled: Reinvention…You! Sherry’s questions for us are in bold and the answers are in italics. Thank you Sherry!
