The Lord has changed my heart, and continues to change my heart daily and it has made all of the difference in my life, in my relationships and in my outlook on every situation I encounter.
“I want to be different, I want to be changed, till all of me is gone and all that remains, is a fire so bright, the whole world can see…that there’s something different in me.” – Micah Tyler
I want to speak less and listen more, I want what the Lord wants for my life, I want to be less like me and so much more like Jesus, I want to live with a light that shines so bright that you can’t help but to see that it is God working through me. I want to know in my heart that the things I am focused on, the work that I do, the energy I put into the world is directly from God and not from my own desires.
My life has drastically changed since January of 2020 and not because of the global pandemic or because I lost my job or was faced with more uncertainty than I have ever experienced, but because through giving my life to Christ, God has shown me that despite of everything going on around me, all of the negative, the troubling, the hardship…He is greater, He is always there for me, His plans are greater than my plans, His peace that He has so graciously given me is worth more than anything I have ever received in life, that even IF something troubling happens, He is still faithful, He is still for me, He is still working.
I never have to go through this life alone because He is always with me…that brings me to tears. He never leaves me. He knows my deepest needs and he has never failed me. What I once thought I couldn’t live without, He has shown me that all I need is His love, peace and grace. The things I once leaned on for strength have been replaced with the encouragement, comfort and peace in the words of the bible and my devotionals. He has made a way when there has appeared to be no way. He has removed things from my life to show me that His ways are greater.
I have learned to live a much simpler life and it is so incredibly freeing. Living with so much less but feeling more fulfilled than ever.
No words will ever be able to describe how thankful I am for my Lord and Savior. But each and every day I will living with thanksgiving in my heart for all He has done, all He is doing and all He has yet to do.
