I'm Back!

Back from the dead! It's so good to feel alive! My beautiful, amazing Jesus set me free from the depression that had been holding me down. Not only that, when my dear brothers and sisters in Christ gathered around to pray for me and love on me, I was able to see at last my true self. I finally really believed that I have never been a disappointment to my King. I saw with crystal clarity the cage the enemy had me in. A cage that was so nearly my true shape that I accepted it for years. NOT ANY MORE!! LOL!!!

There have been many times in my journey with Jesus that, if you had asked me if I knew who I was, if I had experienced His love, if I knew I was absolutely pure in His sight I would have answered with complete certainty "Absolutely!:)"

The way I feel now, I'm not sure I ever really knew it for real. I feel so completely different than I have ever felt in my life. For the first time I know that all those things I hated about me, weren't me. When Jesus looks at me he sees pure gold, absolutely pure. What I have been told many times is actually planted deep in my heart now. The cage, the shell that I thought was me is gone for good. I know the truth now.

Ephesians 3:14-20---

When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.
