My Life Being Transformed

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).

My life is going through a major transformation in almost every way. My hunger for God has intensified over the past two months. Whenever I read the scripture the words jumped off the page into my heart. Feasting on God’s word is like dipping into a well of living water and I am so thirsty for more.

I am not the same person I used to be. The activities that were so gratifying to me before have become strangely unappealing. God indeed gives a new heart and new desires when he regenerates me. My mind is fixed on things above. I see the world in a new light and I desire others to see this light, too. I live out my days as best I can, trying to draw closer to God through prayer, reading the Bible and going to church. I don’t believe going to church can save anyone. I know I can never be a good enough person to earn my way into Heaven. I am fully trusting in God’s promises to save all those who turn from their sins and place their faith in Christ.
I am far from perfect and I still sin and make plenty of mistakes –but when I do, I have an advocate with the Father–the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I am growing by God’s grace.  I’m on a faith journey, growing in my understanding and knowledge of God’s word. I’m trusting in Jesus Christ each and every day. I’m following the Lord on a path towards eternity. I discovered that my faith changed my outlook on life. I have never been more grateful for God’s grace and mercy than I am now. He is far more beautiful and far more precious to me than He has ever been before.  God has been so gracious with me!
My hope and prayer is to be able to serve Him in a full-time capacity using the gifts that He has given me. The fact of the matter is: I can’t make it one day without the Lord. I ask Him to fill me with His spirit day-by-day and moment-by-moment and to lead me. You see, we are all helpless and in need of a Father to care for us. And He is the Father who will never leave us or forsake us. He is the Father who enjoys our presence more than we could ever enjoy His! I am no longer afraid of what others think of me (at least I’m asking the Lord to help me in that area!).
My life is been utterly and totally transformed. The old me, always loved God and believed wholeheartedly in Jesus as my Saviour, no doubts. I thought I was a good Christian until He opened my eyes to my true self. I am so very grateful with every fiber of my being that I have given this chance of renewal. May my life be pleasing to Him who has bought me with the precious sacrifice of His Son, my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
