Week 2: it’s crazy how god works. only a handful of you know how much i was dreading school. i didn’t have the most amazing experience my first year and it honestly had to do a lot with me. i was not in a healthy place and i had slowly started to neglect all the positive things, people, memories, in my life. i had 0 self love and i wanted nothing to do with anyone. except jesus. the thing is, i didn’t know where to start with him. i had lost my drive, completely! the only thing i was okay with doing was singing. but even then i felt so drained and empty. and it was all in my head! i had tried to seek help in many people and they all did and said amazing things for me but i still felt empty and lost.
last week, an amazing childhood friend decided to pause and connect with me. we talked basic “how are you, how’s school” stuff and the next thing you know, we are opening the bible, reading highlights from steps to christ and praying harder than i have in years. my friend, brought me to the one person who i really needed to connect to. took me straight to my savior. it hit me like a wave and seriously, i was spiritually re-baptized. at 12am in the morning, god was doing an amazing ministry through my friend and saved my life. .
today, i have such a clearer view and my heart is full and i believe my worth. i believe that no matter what, god really does love me. i believe that i really don’t have to worry about tomorrow. i believe that there is hope. before that night, i always knew but never believed. now i believe and i am such a different person because of it. and it’s only been 4 days! i’m eternally grateful and hopeful for the journey ahead 💛 #fearfullyandwonderfullymade#loved#jesus#hope#healed#forgiven#changed#lovedwell
We are free to choose between two masters, but we are not free to adjust the consequences of our choices. each of the two masters pay with his own kind of currency. the currency of sin is eternal death. that is all you can expect or hope for in life without god. christ’s currency is eternal life - new life with god that begins on earth and continues forever with god. let us therefore review the choices that we make!
