How easy, after 31 years of having the mind of Christ, did I slip back into my old nature. Wow...please forgive me, LORD.
I have been wallowing lately. Oddly, there seems to be comfort in that. I guess because it it's so familiar to this old soul of mine. And everything in me wants the familiar right now.
OK, Diane, it's time to get out of the pig sty! Enough of the old-familiar slop! Jump back into the Arms of Truth! Back into positional Truth! (Thank you, wise-hearted Betty!!!)
"...according to The Power that works within us." That Power is The Holy Spirit - the same Spirit Who raised Jesus Christ from the grave. Resurrection Power resides in me, and He will do far more abundantly, above anything I can ask or even imagine.
Oh, thank You, LORD! Help me to stop the familiar wallowing and see that a new day has dawned. You give me a future and a hope. Your Resurrection Power will cause me to come alive once again. You will cause this to work for good in my life so that You will be glorified.
You were not surprised by this. Before I even knew I had a need for a Plan B for my life, You had a new plan already blue-printed out. All this destruction will be changed into great purpose, according to Your plan. This is not in vain! Hear that soul? This will not be in vain! It will not be, in Jesus' Name!
Just like a pig who wallows in her muddy sty eventually becomes food to nourish our bodies, God will cause my muck-and-mire life to be the same - "food" to nourish someone else's soul. After all, isn't that what testimonies do?
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your loving kick-in-the-butt. Thank You for a friend to encourage me back into positional Truth! I sure did need it! I love You, my Lord! And you, too, Betty!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
