When you understand that Christ lives in you and gives you the power to overcome, you have the ability to change your perspective. You have to decide if will you be affected by the people and situations in your life or will you affect the people and the situations in your life.
I spent too many hours stuck on the pursuit of what this world classifies as perfection. Since it is something I am unable to attain, it’s a foolish pursuit that doesn’t yield any fruit. Grace is the ability to walk in freedom knowing who my identity is founded in and from that understanding, my words, my thoughts and my actions are a reflection of the confidence given to me by Christ.
“True Bravery isn’t feeling no fear- it’s being afraid and moving forward anyway.” Hard times unlock the doors to places you could not get into any other way. It is in the waiting that God does his greatest work. I can boldly confess that because it is where I am at today. It is when we find joy in the waiting being confident that He will do it that, our Heavenly Father begins to create new things in our lives.
