old things have passed away

2 cor 5_17.002

Starting over.  A fresh start.  A new beginning.  An eternal gift.

I ask myself, what do I have to offer Him?  What do I bring to the table in this relationship I desperately desire to have with Him?  After all, He gave His life for me . . . He gave it All, wiping my slate clean. 

I have nothing . . . absolutely nothing.  N.O.T.H.I.N.G.

All I could see were my old ways, my old life, my old heart that had been hardened by the hurt, the sin, the bitterness, the evil in my life and in the world.  All He sees is me, the new me.

He takes the old me, dirty slate and all.  Me and all my the brokenness, He transforms me into a new creation – from the inside out.

It’s nothing, nothing but Grace. 

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
