Soulprint, Part 1

I recently started a book I received from one of my dear friends when I graduated back in 2011. Funny thing about this book, I didn’t get it till my bridal luncheon back in December. This book went through two friends to get to me.  After falling off the recovery track and losing steam about recovery my therapist suggested I go back and visit Step 4 (make a fearless inventory of myself). While I was making my inventory/list I came across Soulprint on my shelf. Something inside told me now is the time to start this book. That inner voice was right, I needed this book right now…

I want to share with everyone some points and quotes that I found particularly challenging or inspirational in the first section:

“There has never been and never will be anyone else like you. But that isn’t a testament to you. It’s a testament to the God who created you. You are unlike anyone who has ever lived. But that uniqueness isn’t a virtue. It’s a responsibility. Uniqueness is God’s gift to you, and uniqueness is your gift to God. You owe it to yourself to be yourself. But more important, you owe it to the One who designed you and destined you.”

“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”

“You possess a uniqueness that is soul deep. I call it your soulprint. It’s not just who you are, present tense. It’s who you are destined to become, future tense. It’s not just who others see when they look at you from the outside in. It’s who God has destined you to become from the inside out.”

“If you learn the lesson God is trying to teach you, no matter how things turn out, you have not failed. In fact, you cannot fail.”

“He is preparing you for your date with destiny. I promise you that. But I also promise that He’s doing it in ways that are virtually undetectable. And it’s not until you find yourself facing the biggest challenge of you rife that god reveals how and when and where he prepared you.”

“We so quickly forget the central fact of our faith: without a crucifixion there is no resurrection. Those days between death and resurrection are long and dark, but that’s often when a miracle is about to happen. You never know how or when or where a dream will be resurrected, but if it’s God ordained, then God himself will bring it back to life somehow, somewhere, sometime.”

“God can use anything and everything for His purposes if we simply allow ourselves to be used by Him.”

“It’s our lack of trust in Him that results in high levels of past-tense guilt, present-tense stress, and future-tense anxiety.”

Can you believe this is just the first section? I have already been challenged mentally and had a lot of open discussion in therapy. My eyes are being opened. I am hoping for my heart to continue to be receptive as I find out more about my soulprint. I look forward to sharing more of this book with everyone and maybe you will pick up this book and discover your soulprint.
