The truth is, the best remedy for my control problem is not to try to control my behavior further, but to focus on what Jesus willingly did for me.
Right now, we live in a dark time, but we have a hope in Jesus that can’t be stolen, removed, revoked, or destroyed.
But what if our pain, our struggle, and our brokenness are actually good things?
No matter how good or bad your heart looks, God wants it. He wants all of it. More than our actions or skills or behaviors or dreams, he wants our hearts.
Let’s move past the pattern of apathy that’s so easy to fall into and let hope invade our hearts and minds.
Something powerful happens when someone comes alongside you and says “I’ve been there, it does get better, and I’ll be here with you until it does.”
No matter the state of your heart, God wants to and can restore it to wholeness, that is Christa’s anthem and she proclaims it boldly.
I’m learning that I don’t need to be ashamed of my battle with shame. There is freedom in Christ and that is something I’m eternally grateful for!
I’m glad I’m not a neurosurgeon but I’m even more thankful that God has given me the tools and the desire to renew my mind.
Are you striving to be someone you’re not? Are you trying to change your way into belonging? Me too! But I’m working to undo that behavior.
