“10 and have put on the new self who is being [a]renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [b]barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and [c]patience;” (Colossians 3:10-12, NASB- Italics, Bold, and quotations added for emphasis)
“2 And do not be conformed to this [a]world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may [b]prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [c]acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2, NASB – Italics, Bold, and quotations added for emphasis)
So some people keep asking me, when and how the heck did all this change come about in you? How have you changed so drastically in only such a short amount of time? Let me tell you right now guys, your guess is just about as good as mine is LOL. But let me tell you something: My God is AWESOME and so AMAZING! He is capable of ANY and EVERYTHING! There is never a lost cause! It is never too late! No matter how bad things are for you right now! So I hope that and this blog post gives you some inspiration. 🙂
It was the beginning of 2013. I was beyond depressed and things were just out of control crazy for me. Crazy in a bad way, by the way. It was like this until, I’d say, about the middle of February. I was having a conversation with one of my best friends the night before he was to leave overseas and something he said to me sparked a huge change in my heart. I don’t know what it was or why it happened, but that’s when the search began.
It wasn’t what I expected, beyond my wildest dreams, I really didn’t think I’d be this far ahead in my life ALREADY in only 2 months! Glory to God in the highest! This is totally a God thing, NOT a me thing!
I never thought the prayer I had prayed at the beginning of February would shift my whole entire life, perspective, spirituality, emotional and mental life. Something I had said in my prayer apparently moved God in such a drastic way. Maybe it was my faith, even though my faith was so weak at that time.
This is the prayer that I said to God that depressing and cold night in February:
“Dear Lord God, I ask that you be the center of my life and that you be in the center of all of my relationships and friendships. Heal me from my anxiety and show me a better, more calm way of life.”
It wasn’t like I was crying that night (well, I was, actually… but I definitely did NOT know what I was getting myself in to)! God is capable of more than we think! He is NOT a wimp!
So you see guys, that simple little prayer made a huge shift in my life. One small little prayer and faith is all it takes for God to move. A few months later, and I’d say (thanks to the Lord) I am a brand new woman! A woman of God! A Daughter of the most High King! The only King! Whoop Whoop! Such an honor to be a part of His wonderful Kingdom! Now my only focus is that of His Kingdom, I could care less about the wealth, material possessions and other stuff of this world, all I care about is the things that will last me forever. Stuff that will last FOREVER! My eyes are now focused on that which is above and I can only thank God Almighty for getting me to where I am today.
I still have so much to go but I thank the Lord that I am not where I was a few months ago.. Let alone, yesterday! I’m a work in progress and I am happy with that!
Hope all of y’all have a wonderful and blessed night/day, wherever you are in this beautiful world of God! You are beautiful and loved as you are! See you guys later!
