This Great Freedom


Before Jesus, I had to place all of my happiness in success.  The world was good when things were going right.  

I had to be rocked by every single set back.  Every single slight.  Every disappointment.

Jesus has changed everything.  Now set backs and discouragement and weakness are opportunities for Him to shine.  They are moments that remind me that Jesus is always more than enough.  

I’m not a success.  I am not a failure.  These things may happen to me, but they don’t define me.

 I am so much more - I am HIS.  And He is mine.

This changes everything.  In Him and Him alone, I can STAND FIRM
