Saved By The Truth

securedownload-24“One lie can overshadow a hundred truths… A single truth can shine thru a million lies”

Unfortunately, it seems that so often we let that one lie get to us. We may think we aren’t good enough, we don’t have what it takes, we will never make a difference. Whatever lie it is we choose to believe it ends up distracting us from our purpose because that one lie we believe can lead to another and another to the point that we really have to dig to uncover the truth.

Fortunately for us Jesus is that single Truth who can break through all those lies. There is no darkness in the Lord.

“The Lord is my light and the One who saves me; I fear no one. The Lord protects my life. I am afraid of no one.” (Psalm 27:1)

Jesus defeats the darkness with His light, and we can be strong and brave, knowing that Jesus will help us see past all the lies of the devil.

When we focus on the Truth of Christ and who He is we can ignore the lies that tend to distract us. I realize that is a lot easier said than done. It can be easy to think okay I will just think about Jesus and center my thoughts on Him and who He says I am, but when it comes down to it, thinking that way all the time isn’t very easy. In fact most things about life brings difficulty. I hope and pray that we can help each other out by encouraging one another to keep on pushing through life’s everyday challenges so we can overcome and see past the darkness and into the Light! The Light is Jesus, and He sets us free from the lies that hold us back!

I believe part of my calling is to passionately serve, comfort, and encourage others faithfully with pure humility and honest compassion to help them realize the never-ending love and true value God has for them. I want to reach out to the ones who are afraid, lost, lonely, and hurting with the unconditional love of God. I want to empathize with their struggles, and I just want to show them the healing love Jesus has for those with damaged emotions. I haven’t quite discovered what my purpose is, as in what I will actually do with my life once I finish school as far as what career to get into or anything, but I do know that if I walk by faith and not by sight, God will guide me where He wants me to be.... it’s so easy to say that, now I just wish I would actually trust that it’s going to happen… A bit about what I do is I enjoy reading and studying the Bible, doing devotionals, jotting down stuff in my prayer journal, hanging out with my awesome family and friends, being involved in small groups, writing encouraging notes to people, running, and playing tennis! My goal is to finish strong in this race called life, making a difference for Christ and living out the life He has called me to live, by loving God with all my heart, soul, strength, and mind, and loving others with the same love God has for me. My life is a continual work in progress, and I will continue to make a lot of mistakes. My hope is that I would learn from my past and press on, knowing that in my weaknesses, Christ is strong. I do not want my life to be centered on what I cannot do. I want my life centered on how God can use me the way I am - struggles, insecurities, failures, and all - and how that can be used to glorify Him! My hope is to inspire a few others to realize their place in this world and see their true identity in Christ!
