This is one of Veronica's originals. Oh, I love it.
Yep, sometimes, we must KEEP looking for that brighter side to things in this life, don't we? But, if we keep looking, eventually we will see!
I used to be very pessimistic and truly only saw "the glass as half empty".
Until, I began reading and allowing God's Word to have have it's transforming power in me.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. ~ Romans 12:2The word "renewing" means renovation. Renovation means the act of renewing and restoring. God restores where He needs to and makes new where He needs to. Hallelujah! In my case, He had much to make new!
And He sure did! He renovated me from the inside out.
"Be transformed" - like a caterpillar to a butterfly transforms. That is what God has done in me. He didn't just fix me up; He made me into a brand new creature! And I will shout it from the rooftops: I AM A TRANSFORMER! HALLELUJAH!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ~ II Corth. 5:17
I am so glad you all didn't know me back then. But, am blessed beyond measure that you know me now!
...sigh...I sure wish I had the artistic ability to depict it...
...Ver.on.i.ca...If any creative images come to mind...
Because of Him and Unto Him,
