I'm a Has Been
The typical definition is this; a has been is one that is no longer famous, popular, successful, or useful or effective. It got me thinking...
I am one who has been on the short end of the stick.
I am one who has been on the outside looking in.
I am one who has been between a rock and a hard place.
I am one who has been given much.
"Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't he also give us everything else?" Romans 8:32 NLT
I am one who has been asked in.
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 ESV
I am one who has been hidden.
"For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God." Colossians 3:3 NLT
I think God has a powerful love for has beens...don't you? After all...He has been faithful.
