It has been quite some time since I last wrote on here! So much has changed, I’ve been stretched in so many ways and although uncomfortable I am grateful for the growing pains, even more so for a new heart.
If I could describe 2020 in one word, it would undoubtedly be, ‘grace’. Or at least, the year that the realisation dawned upon me about how much grace I’ve been given from my Father. As it is written in Acts 15:11, “We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus.”
I am so undeserving of His grace because I am a sinner but because of Jesus Christ, He frees me from this life of sin. (Romans 24-25). 3 years ago or even a year ago, I would not have openly proclaimed my love for the One who gave me life – I was blinded and could not see the truth.
The content that you consume influences your choices, who you are and who you befriend. To accept Jesus in my life and deny myself (Matthew 16:24) has brought me into a room where there only stands Jesus before me and I am on my knees. I have had to let go of all my, ‘worldly pleasures’, all the things that seemed normal to me, I’ve given up. Swearing, listening to secular music, wearing clothes that could drive someone to sin. There is much more and like anyone else, I’m changing everyday and wanting to become more like Jesus.
My old self has been crucified with Christ and I’ve found a new heart in Him (Galatians 2:20). Your life changes once you let Him in and allow Him to take the lead. This life that I live is not mine but His and all that I am is but a servant of His kingdom.
He is at the center of my life, I don’t do things in my own strength, I don’t let anything or anyone cloud my focus away from Him.
He is who I live for. He has given me a new heart.
