“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Today my co-worker told me that she sees my transformation in God. She said that she’s never seen a transformation happen so fast in a person, in her entire life. She knew me when I was in my worldly mess and now she sees the goodness of the Lord in my life. I told her that this is just a byproduct of 1 decision that I made. The decision to completely submit my life to God!
WOW God Wow…..
I feel new because I AM NEW. Refreshed by your word and filled with your spirit. You have taken me from a foolish, worldly, immature woman who was going on a downward spiral of insecurity, cloudiness, faithlessness and ignorance. Yes, a downward trajectory of nothingness, which would have led me to the same story of fruitlessness over and over again and IF I finally decided to take advantage of the opportunity to be founded by God again, I would be living a life that was never meant to be my portion. BUT GOD! But God saved me, But GOD delivered me, BUT God set ME free. I am thankful for him finding me in just the right place at just the right time.
Where would I be if I was still stuck in that place?
I wouldn’t be anywhere closer to where God purposed me to be so I thank him for rescuing me. God, thank you for saving me from myself. Thank you for making me new so that I can share my testimony with others.
My testimony is this…
I was unhappy. Tired of looking for love. I eventually stopped believing that love was even real. I subjected myself to the thought that I would have to settle for someone less than what I thought I deserved all because I never found what I was looking for. But, what was I looking for? At the time, I didn’t even understand what love really was. I was looking for something that I didn’t know the meaning of, so how would I even recognize it when I saw it?!
I was lost. I always felt like something was missing, but I didn’t exactly know what it was. I had what I thought to be a “relationship with God”, so it couldn’t be that, right? I didn’t realize how spiritually unhealthy I was. How far away from God I had gotten! How I didn’t really have faith in him at all! How I was in bondage and full of insecurities! I didn’t know who I was.
I was blind. I missed God so many times. I was always looking for a sign, but so oblivious to the signs that he was giving me. He was pulling on me, tugging at my heart, trying to arrest my attention the entire time and yet, I ignored him.
“He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3
He saved me with his grace. For he is the God of many chances. Giving me more chances than I will ever deserve. Through him I am forgiven, my sins redeemed. He has delivered my soul from the despair I had been placing myself in.
Because of him I know unconditional love. The type of love that forgives my wrongs. The type of love that never fails and always perseveres. He holds me like a baby being held in her father’s arms as she is suspended in air. His love always protects.
I was founded and made new. He was constantly offsetting my obliviousness with his steadfast love. He sought me out tirelessly, rescued me from my ignorance and revived my soul.
I see clearly. I am confident. I am strong. I am made perfect in his image. I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
The Lord’s love, his worD, is like fresh water when you are dry, he restores your strength. It is as if I have been drenched with a bucket of water, COMPLETELY refreshed by the LORD.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Until next time…
