This morning I came before the Lord with all of my “stuff”….
Things that have accumulated from the last day, mixed in with some things that have been “secretly growing” in my heart for probably my whole life.
Insecurities. Wrong ways of thinking. Sin.
It’s interesting how situations in life can cause hidden wounded areas to suddenly feel pain.
(But pain causes us to go to The Doctor)
So this morning after I talked with the Lord about this pain, I quickly realized that this was another area that needed to be exposed to His light.
Another area that needs to die in my flesh because it’s getting in the way.
It can be hard to face the the things that come to the surface sometimes. We can either push them back down like they never surfaced, pretend they’re not there, or we can face these things with the Lord, and let Him do the work He wants to do within our hearts to set us free, to grow us, to keep us moving forward.
He always gives me hope and encouragement in dealing with the things within my heart that He doesn’t want to be there. Things that are dangerous to me, to my relationship with Him, and my relationship with others.
He’s always faithful to show me what I need to be aware of, and exactly what I need to do.
And it’s usually always quite simple ❤️
He so lovingly gives me the opportunity to repent, and to be made new again and again… another opportunity to grow in Him. ?
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.” -1 Peter 3:18
And then He sets me back right again… renews my mind, renews me through and through…
Thank You, Lord. ?☀️
