Life can be so messy, full of chaos, and downright cruel. Either we’re acting out of our mess or others act out of theirs and we end up emotionally vomiting all over each other. Messy.
It’s easier to fall into that grove of this fleshly earthen world than to rise above it in the Spirit. Herein lies the truth of who we are..Spirit. The truth is not that we are flesh, for we are simply living in a vessel that will one day expire. It’s our Spirit that matters most.
The truth is… we are perfect, holy, and without blemish. We are dearly loved. Believe the truth about yourself and you will believe the truth about others. Believe lies about yourself and you’ll believe lies about others. Living out of a pit of hate will only lead you to hate and to death. Live out of the depth of love, because THAT is who you are…love.
We are created in the image of God, who is Love. When we forget who we are in Him, then we fall into that pit again and again. We weren’t designed to walk through this world with a corpse hanging over our shoulders. The dead remain in the grave and the living rise from the ashes and thrive among the beauty of this amazing creation.
We will reap if we faint not. Fainting puts us back into the grave, and we don’t belong there. He has risen us from the grave with himself through resurrection. Why do we keep throwing ourselves back into the dirt?
Press on toward the mark..this high calling in God. To live loved and therefore that love will pour out upon those around us.
It’s in the renewing of our minds…the changing of our thoughts..about who we are first..then we will see who others really are. The deception wants to blind us and trick us into thinking the worst of ourselves, when every single day Jesus is cheering you on in the truth of who you are..who we all are.
Perfect in him, overcomers, triumphant victors.
Whatever things are perfect, holy, blessed, and joyful…think on those things, because they are truth.
Believe the truth about yourself and you will begin to see a metamorphosis in how you live and how you see others…then as you live out of that truth, you will see that truth and love shining in others.
Be the SHINE you want to see in the world around you.
