Good-bye, Afraid. Good-bye, Ashamed.
Tonight I have learnt something really cool and exciting about myself. I have transformed spiritually, mentally and emotionally; truly getting to know (and love) myself. I dont care what others think of me. The cross has set me free. Another chain down. Another step in healing and learning my identity in Christ. Pretty exciting, right? Well, let me explain how I came to this realization and a new found..ME.
Its Friday. Its cold. Its December.
As I write this, my sister is complaining about it being 11:17pm and she has to work at 10am tomorrow morning. Typical.
I can’t even talk, think or write at the moment. Trying to discuss the above paragraph with them has been completely turned and redirected to something I am not even talking about. Completely misunderstanding what I’m trying to say.
*An hour later and without interruptions*
And just like He promises, He will never leave or forsake you. I was finally understood.
The post above has been saved as a draft since 2017.
Transformation takes time. I remember that night. Another night explaining my transformation and feeling like I’m not being fully understood.
When you hear someone giving God praise, it’s not because the Lord answered their prayer right away or because they are being boastful. No, friends, (because of their faithfulness and obedience to an understanding, forgiving, and loving Father) they are seeing true, undenying transformation in their lives.
Transformation takes time. I no longer feel misunderstood, and if I am, that’s okay. It is now 2019 and it feels like that draft was saved years and years ago. The transformation that has taken place since then is ridiculously beautiful. Humbling. I’m beyond thankful. When you say good-bye to those chains, you see the beauty that was created along the way; a transformed you.
He hasn’t forgotten or left me.
Neither has He left you – –
