Being right with God isn’t the hard part.
The hard part is learning how to live it out.
You have lived a long time being broken.
A long time learning how to cope with it, how to function in it. The good news of Jesus Christ is that He has taken your brokeness upon himself and in return offers you wholeness. To restore your mind, heart, soul and spirit to God’s original design.
He wants to teach you a new way to live.
How to live whole and treasured.
How to live trusting and trusted.
How to live nurtured and nourished.
How to love and be loved.
“He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.” (Romans 3:21-24 MSG)
It takes time and perseverance.
God provides the time, we provide the perseverance.
Don’t give up. Everyday you are learning how to live restored in Christ.
“Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1:4 NIV)
