A friend of mine once said what happened to the old Christina. Can you bring her back? You’ve changed. At first I did not know what to say so I said nothing, I should have said she died. To be honest this is the first time in my life that I’ve even been happy, content, filled with purpose and looking forward to a bright future. Why would anyone want to take that away from me? I’ve always looked like I had it all together but truth is I didn’t my appearance may have been together but the “real me” on the inside was a hot mess. I spent most of my energy worrying, crying, scared, depressed, anxious and in real physical pain living in the what if’s. What if this happens or that happens, what if this person says that or what if they talk about me. What if nothing it was a waste of time and energy, an attack of the enemy, which made me believe lies about myself. I was being deceived and did not learn the truth until the Holy Spirit revealed it to me. I’m less concerned about what other people think of me and more concerned about what the Lord thinks of me. Are you struggling with depression, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, low self-esteem or in the what if’s? We are born in sin, God is a spirit of free will and you have a choice. You can choose to continue to believe what you’ve always believed or invite Jesus into your heart to free you from your chains. We are children of the Creator of heaven and earth, I’m alive for the first time, He gave me life because the old me was dead, my heart was made of stone from being so hurt and broken. His love is available to everyone, I shared this because I want others to have the same. You are worthy, we are not alone, you are not alone His arms are open waiting for you to make a choice. Choose a life free from the law of sin and death Roman 8:2.
