2 Corinthians 4:16 (NAS) Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. And, 5:17 Cor. Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Last night before sleeping, i was remebering my old life and some particular incidents. I was wondering how i could allow certain situation to happen, or be repeated. Why couldn't i have been stronger, and more self respect? I realized, it was partly because of the need to be liked, and feel worth while. I've always had the need to feel validated. But, you know God didn't create me for those situations I allowed, that actually hurt me sense of self. He is the one who rescued my from that pit of self destruction, and set my feet on the rock! It's in Christ i find out who i am, and my true(new)self. I discovered, in God, that i am not a worthless person with no purpose, I was created for Good things, in Christ. When God made me, He had good in mind, the same with all of you. I may not be worthy of God, but i am not worthless. I cost Him, His Son. That is priceless! Use your free will today, to choose good! And Jesus!
