I fondly remember a client who frequently told me and the other women in my coaching program that she was “bottled from the source”—in other words, made in the image of God.
I can’t think about her without a smile on my face, because she is one of those who lights up a room, encourages the heart, and inspires the soul. I can’t help but guess that her joy comes from knowing she was made for a purpose.
Are you bottled from the source?
And if so, what are the ramifications of such powerful knowledge?
I’ll admit. I stand high atop my platform on this very issue—that fact that you have been bottled from the source, and yes, with that comes not only great blessing but also great responsibility.
First, if you’re made in the image of God, then how can you not succeed? I’m not talking about your ability to achieve anything and everything. I’m talking about knowing that if God has led you down a certain path, He will provide the resources for your journey.
Second, you are not alone! He is always with you—comforting you, guiding you, disciplining you, and blessing you.
Third, you were created to do a grand work. Should you be a Martin Luther King Jr. or a Mother Teresa? Why not? Or better, why not be who you were designed to be? I am convinced that we all long for a deep sense of meaning and contribution to this world. What is yours?
And finally, if you’re bottled from the source, you’ll never go thirsty.
Think about that.
