Who I am

Fits of rage, selfish ambition, hatred, jealousy, envy, debauchery, idolatry, liar, deception, disrespect .

These are the things that established a disconnect.

A disconnection, wall, separation.

Light and dark don't combine, no way for them to intertwine. I was the dark. Blind, wasteful, lost. His death was the cost.

 

But in all his glory was righteousness, love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness,gentleness, self-control, patience. 

I didn't understand I thought I was innocent, decent and kind. I was wrong I thought I was in the light with the way I would say "Yes ma'am" "No sir" or with the way my grades would shine so bright.

I didn't think I was beautiful. I had built up a wall of fake confidence. I thought I would never be found 'Attractive' to the opposite sex.

I didn't understand that love didn't come from a guy holding your hand.

No, love is when someone dies for you even though you've never seen him. Love is when his thoughts of you are so numerous everyday. Love is when He cares enough to pick you up when you have fallen on your face.

He is light. On February 22nd the brightness of his glory shone through my inequity, my darkness, to scoop me in his arms and make me complete.

Now I know I am more precious than a ruby. Because he created me as a masterpiece.  I have no reason to fear because my God is always near. I am not who I used to be when I set out on the journey. No, I am made new in the light. Now I am who I am because of Christ.

I am gentle, brave, loving, kind, truthful, a servant, an example, not easily angered, bold, beautiful, new. You know who I am now, so I ask......who are you?
