Prior to accepting Jesus as my Savior, I lived for myself, according to my emotions and feelings (perfectionism, worry, anger, control). (Romans 8:5-8)
I began reading God’s Word daily, drawing closer to Him. It became evident that this was not the life that God wanted me to live. His Word opened my eyes and showed me that He created me (Psalm 139:13-16), how much He loved me (John 3:16) and, most of all, that He wanted a relationship with me. He showed me that His son, Jesus, was the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that no one comes to Him except through Jesus (John 14:6). I accepted His offer! Now that Jesus lives in me, I recognize that it is He who has overcome my perfectionism, worry, control issues, and anger. I trust Jesus (not myself) with my life (Proverbs 3:5-6). I am a child of God (however, I do still sin). What freedom and resurrection power I have living inside me, right now, here on this earth. What peace this brings! (Isaiah 26:3)
