Why you acting brand new??

​Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
Just in case you don’t know, let me tell you …

I didn’t truly love and embrace Jessica until my relationship with Christ grew. So as I read  this scripture, I’m reminded of some things that I once did. But like the scripture says, because I have Christ I am new. Now, don’t think for a minute that once I accepted Christ everything about about me changed right away. No. I had to reprogram. 

No longer do I crave the attention 

No longer do I thrive off compliments.

No longer do I struggle with low self esteem.

No longer do I live my life based on the opinions of others.

No longer do I desire to be a Jones.

No longer do I hide pain behind this smile.

No longer do I put myself down.

No longer a slave to “likes”.

No longer do I struggle with my worth.
Nope. 

So if act brand new, it’s only because I am. Now, I see myself through God’s eyes. And you know what? I’m pretty special.
