#easter is just a couple days away, and I could not be more grateful, more humble, more appreciative, more attentive, more in need of, more desperate for, His promise that was displayed through paying the ultimate sacrifice enduring pain, abuse and struggle, so that we may walk freely from our past, from condemnation, from shame and guilt, and stand confident in Him & His life-saving promise.
Through this season of my life, I have learned the hard way that there is a difference between knowing His promise, & then choosing to walk by faith BELIEVING in His promise. Believing is an action. Believing is not easy, especially when you encounter one of life’s many storms. I have encountered a storm. I have days when I accept the storm and days when I fight it, but fighting it only hurts me more... & God hurts when He watches me hurt myself.
Through hard lessons learned, I realize now I had been hurting myself for a longtime. I’ve projected that hurt on the ones I love, because I wasn’t in step with #faith and #believing . It’s a choice. It’s a verb.
Choosing to accept and believe His promise means you choose to believe that you are worthy of love, grace and mercy. You choose to believe in The Cross... The Mercy Tree ( shoutout to @krissy_nordhoff )
Accept His love... let it teach you how to give and receive love to others, the way Christ did even until the last few moments of His dying breath. Live your life according to that breath. It truly is a beautiful thing.
Thank You Jesus We find rest in your promise.
