I am His


Hi folks,

This is the last post in this mini series. A lot of thought and time has gone into creating an outlet for me to share my walk with Christ. It's not always the most comfortable thing to talk about on a public forum, but through this I hope to touch each reader and let them into my life for a moment. Lastly, I hope you hear the Lord through these words as he guides me and my fingers as I type this.

I am changed and constantly changing.

I have the ability, through Him, to drop what other people think and follow Him.

I am flawed. I am a liar. I am a fake. All these things could define me, but through Him I can drop these "definitions" of myself and be free.

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth isn't in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sin and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:8-10

I continued to tell myself that hurting my body in that way was okay. I was repeatedly sinning. I was continuously deceiving myself by believing that my motives were just and pure, but by reevaluating the motives behind my actions I was able to realize that "Hey, I'm sinning."

God tells us that our bodies are temples and that we are not our own. We were bought at a hefty cost. Jesus died so that each person on this Earth could be forgiven for their sins. But sometimes we forget and hurt our bodies in ways that make God cry. As Christians we have to know that God is sad when we hurt the body we were put in. He worked hard and long to create you. (Corinthians 6:19)

We were created in His image and that reminder is just that, a reminder.

A reminder to eat, drink, breathe, exercise, learn, and keep living.

Confessing to these sins isn't about forgetting them, it is about forgiving them. I am reminded daily of where I was one year ago. I am reminded of how easy that pattern was. I DON'T forget, but I will forgive myself.

Nothing about that situation was justifiable. It was bad.

But I have to remember and then know that my body is the image of Christ. He is in me. So, I eat, drink, sleep, and breathe easy knowing that He, my God, lives inside me and he created me with a purpose. Big or small, I will live, and through Him, I will fulfill my purpose here on Earth.

for the sinners, the liars, and the fakes included,

Seek Simplicity,
