Higher Power: Life We Gain

higher_power_on_recoverywise

The new life we receive through Christ is not a makeover of our outward appearance and wardrobe.  It’s not a special feeling or physical sensation we experience while it’s taking place.  It’s not winning the lottery and having all our problems go away.

The life we gain when we give our hearts to Jesus is eternal life–the promise of being with our Lord in heaven–but also an abundant life of purpose, joy, and contentment in our early existence.

We have the two best reasons possible to rejoice over the enormous gifts God extends to us through salvation in his Son.  Even though our mortal bodies will perish just as Adam’s did, our spirits will not die but will complete our transformation.

Today, enjoy the gifts of the new life you’ve been given.

CHALLENGE:  Post a message on one of your public pages, praising God for your salvation and abundant life.

  • The words will come, and when they start, it will probably be like a raging river of letters, memories, feelings, and emotions flowing through your hands. He will give you the bravery, the words, and be there with you. I have to throw this in…..just be patient ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I already did the challenge, but in all honesty, I don’t have any public pages except wordrpress (no facebook, twitter, instagram, no social media, none.) Is that cheating? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Nope. One is sufficient for sure. I key is you did it. Most won’t bother. Pat yourself on the back! You deserve it. I do struggle with trying to engage my community and be a place folks want to be coming to for enjoyment, inspiration, comfort, knowledge, support. Some days I get down if that doesn’t happen. Then I try to remember to just write for myself as much as I can. Also to be honest and bold. It’s not quantity but quality

      • You do great ๐Ÿ™‚ You touch more people that you know. I might not have all the social media stuff, it’s by choice but everybody I know does. Most of the time, for one person who “likes” or “comments” or participates, there are dozens, sometime hundreds that read it, like it, and want to comment but don’t know what or how to word it. If that makes sense. You keep being honest and bold, that’s what I come here for ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Well, I’ve been debating a few posts on my childhood. It’s proving a little more daunting than I thought. But I know, for my recovery it’s necessary. I’ve been talking to my higher power for bravery. Thank you so much for your thoughts on what I’m doing. I can’t tell you what that means to me. If I am helping people then I know I’m on the right path
