Limitations… What Do We “Put in a Box”?

This is for the many who have lives that are set in a pattern with certain limitations. Are we limiting ourselves from growth or are others limiting us? Have we conformed our lives to please others or have we actually tried to reach our full potential?  Sometimes we need to think “out of the box”!

As I see these pictures…
of watermelons grown square…
I think of our lives…
and the restrictions put there.
For we put many limits…
on what we can do…
and even put limits…
on what God can do too.
For we say He can do anything…
but many don’t expect miracles today…
thinking they’re of past days…
so many limit Him in this way.

They put God in a box…
like these watermelons are grown…
so we can fit all comfortable…
in the life we have known.
But how many want more…
than these limits we’ve imposed.
To see all God can do…
and the miraculous exposed.
So remove the box…
and grow, grow, grow!!
For God has more hidden…
that He wants us to know.

 Dear Lord, please help us to be all that You have planned for our lives, accomplishing all that was written about us before the beginning of time. Remove the blinders that have been placed on our eyes. Remove the limitations that have been set… either self imposed or imposed by others from even generations past. Help us to see “out of the box” that has been neatly wrapped around our lives to the greater dimensions that You have planned for each of our spheres. Enlarge our spheres to do Your work and no longer be hindered by man-made limitations. Help us to walk with You, expecting the unexpected, and walking in obedience, no longer limited by our pasts… in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
