God is in the Fixing Business
Welcome to chapter 16 of "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. It has taken me almost a year to finish this series. Part of it was a new job and the other part? Well, I learned so much and grew so much, it was hard to see it end. I am a different person than I was in September of 2016! Praise the Lord! I feel as if God has peeled off some rough layers to reveal a more beautiful vessel, or maybe a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. All that has happened this past year, I give glory to my heavenly Father!
This journey of "focusing upward" and holding His hand as we walk this life to greater wholeness in Him is just that, a journey. One that is lifelong. Will I have some days where insecurity and the fear of rejection will rear its ugly head? Of course, it will. However, I have more tools in my tool belt to deal with it now!
The picture above says it beautifully! "With You, Jesus, I'm forever: safe, accepted, held, completely loved and always invited in."
"Rejection NEVER has the final say!" (Emphasis mine.)
Jesus has created me to be me, no one else. I don't need to fit into anyone else's ideas of what I should or shouldn't be doing. I will no longer allow fear hold me back! It is time to forget the past and see the new thing that God is doing!
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NLT):
But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.Behold I am doing a new thing (add whole verse).
What new thing is God doing in your life now? I love to hear about it in the comments below!
