As I get older and experience more difficult and serious situations in my own life and in the life of others around me I begin to realize my need for Jesus more and more. My need for everything He has to offer me… Not just my name as a ‘christian’ or the feel good stuff, but my true need in my deepest, darkest, loneliest moments.
Recently I have had to work through several things that have been churning in my own heart for a long time that have caused bitterness, jealousy, anger and hurt, and I know that I couldn’t make it through all of this on my own accord. No way, no how. It’s just too much for our little, sinful souls to handle. Sometimes there is really nothing anyone can do or say, and nothing even we can do for ourselves except fall down at His feet with all our worries and problems.
We have to lean on Him to Set. Us. Free. Salvation and a life lived fully committed to Him doesn’t come by our own strength. NOTHING, and I mean nothing can come through our own strength, you have to leave it up to God. It’s a very hard thing to do, and it takes A LOT of time but it’s so worth it. Not having to worry about things you really can’t to anything about and having someone to lean on in your darkest night really is as lovely as it sounds. Being saved is the best thing that ever happened to me… And the best thing that could ever happen to you! Let Him set you free. I promise… You will have absolutely no regrets. ♥
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
