I loved playing copycat when I was a little girl.
I’d mimic and repeat everything a friend said until I drove her nuts.
Not many people enjoyed my game.
Now that I’m older (I’m 92 now) . . .
(OK, not really. I just wanted to make sure you were still reading!)
Now that I’m older, I find myself yearning to copycat Someone else.
And He loves it!
Ephesians 5:1 says, “Be imitators of God.”
Though I often fall very short, I deeply yearn to copycat my heavenly Father.
I want to be like Him.
Act like Him.
Smell like Him.
Make choices like Him.
Respond like Him.
I’m discovering that the more time I spend with Him,
the more His Spirit works within me to mold me
and define me
What would it be like to be defined by Christ?
Think about it: Michael Jordan = basketball.
Tiger Woods = golf.
Serena Williams = tennis.
(Your name) ____________ = Jesus.
That’s my desire, Lord.
Thank You for never giving up on me.
Please keep working, re-working and breaking me
until I look like You.
How do you see God working in your life to make you more like Him?
How’s your imitation coming?
Play copycat with your Father!
Another example of impeccable timing. I know this post is from a couple days ago and I’m just now getting to it, but…this is exactly what today’s morning service sermon was on. I’m getting more and more excited to see His handwork in play as pieces of the puzzle come together.
I do want to be more like Jesus every day. Thanks for your input into my life at North Central Ohio Camp Meeting this summer (2015).
