Becoming new

When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Living Bible

Lord, thank You that my past life is forgiven and behind me. Thank You for the ways You’re always working in my life to make me new. Help me to accept the process of growth and change.

Help me to trust in You, when the process feels strange and frightening, even painful, as You change me from my old self to the new person You created me to be. Help me to trust You when it feels cramped and confined, like the butterfly still in its chrysalis. Help me to trust You when my wings are still crumpled and creased and I can’t fly yet.

And most of all, when You’re ready for me to fly, help me to know that I only do it through You. In my own strength, I can do nothing. Your power sustains all life, from every beat of a butterfly’s wings to every beat of my heart.

[Tweet “God sustains all things, from the beat of a butterfly’s wings to the beat of our hearts.”]

[Tweet “God will forgive our mistakes and make us new! Ask Him. Trust Him.”]
