My thoughts or his

I was at a recovery day in Glasgow today. There were one thousand five hundred people who took part celebrating their new lease in life. I began to have a few thoughts about Christian’s  getting together just to celebrate the things that they have been set free from.

I have been set free from sin and its effects on my life. That means that I have been  set free from fear, anxiety, hopelessness, depression and alcoholism. Jesus set me free from myself and my selfishness. Therefore I am a new creation.

Being a new creation can be difficult as there is my old self hiding in the back ground. My old self tries to tell me that I have never changed, apart from my drinking, your just the same old self deep down. There always seems to be a fight going on deep down inside. My daily choice is simple. The choice is whether to believe what Jesus says about myself or what I think about myself.

Jesus loves me. In his thoughts I am special, I am loved, I am blameless and I am a completely new creation made in his image. His thoughts about you are the exact same.

Today I choose to believe what Jesus thinks about me and not listen to my self talk.

Will you believe what Jesus thinks about you today?

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.
