Today I was talking to a sister believer in Christ and during the latter part of our conversation (our time of praise and thanksgiving) it occurred to me that what we desire most or what we are most passionate about will take effort (work). Some kind of effort to have it and maintain it whether that is a relationship, work project, ministry, etc. Not just our individual effort but more so it is coming into the understanding and receiving that the Lord has already done the work necessary for us to overcome and achieve what and where God has positioned us to be.
Through JESUS we can overcome whatever has set us back in the past.
Our past does not define us but JESUS does.
Praise the Lord and Amen,
Barbara J Couch, MDiv.
