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.
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.
