"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you cause you to walk in My statutes." Ezekiel 36:26, 27a

"I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live." Ezekiel 37: 14a

"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

Isn't it comforting to know that Christ will make us new again? Doesn't it just blow your mind that the God of the universe will draw near to you? To you!!!!! =)  God must first empty us of our sin, or whatever is getting in our way of our relationship with Him. When He empties us, He cleans us out and then He can fill us with HIM! =) I pray that God empties me of my thoughts and desires and fills them with HIS thoughts and desires. For Him to do that tho, I have to first draw near to Him. He won't just do this or that for me without my asking Him, (although He could and He will do that sometimes!!). He is always there ready and willing to take us back, but He gives us that choice. I pray that you choose to accept Him. I pray that you choose His will over yours. 

When you do, He gives you a new heart. Ezekiel 36:26 says He will give you a heart of flesh. This means a heart that will feel. He will give you His heart. A heart that sees the things that God sees. Like Brandon Heath's song "Give Me You Eyes". It says: "Give me Your eyes for just one second. Give me Your eyes so I can see everything that I keep missing. Give me Your love for humanity. Give me Your arms for the brokenhearted the ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten. Give me Your eyes so I can see." He will replace that cold, hard heart and make it flesh -- warm and sensitive to the ones around you. 

You think you're living now? Wait till you're living with Jesus! Now you're living! =) Don't let the things of your past get in the way of your future. Something I cannot do is forgive and forget, but God can. He has the ability to completely forgive and completely forget. So when we keep thinking about our past mistakes, we're holding ourselves back from what God has planned for us. Through Christ, God has made all things new! It's like your sins never happened! All God sees is His daughter/son. And He loves you. He made you to be His.

First Blog.

Since I have 66 notes on Facebook, I decided to leave Facebook notes in the past and move on to a Blogger! =) I will most likely copy and paste many of the notes I have written in the past(which I will so indicate when I post them).

Why do we always keep going back to the things that hurt us? Why do we allow ourselves to suffer so much? It's an addiction, like tobacco or alcohol or drugs. We might know it's bad for us, but we just can't stop doing it. It's such a part of our lives that we can't stop.

But if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten.

We want to change, but we don't ever do anything about it. We want to live our lives differently, but we're so stuck in that rut that we can't get out.

I know with me, I don't ever know how to guard my heart. So 99.9% of the time I get hurt, and I don't seem to ever know why. silly me.

Others, maybe it's being in a relationship. An abusive one. Not necessarily physically abusive, but emotionally, or verbally. Maybe you dad was like that to your mom, so even tho as much as you wanted to never be around that again, all the guys you date are just like that. I'ts like you can't escape it. So you accept it.

Or maybe, you keep giving and giving of yourself to your significant other. Maybe you do everything to make him/her happy. They do nothing in return. Ever. They don't abuse you in any way... they just don't love you back. So instead of fighting, you accept it.

Maybe... a lot of things...
and maybe instead of you fighting the system, you just hunker down and take each blow. you sit there and let the same ol' same ol' happen to you. Day after day... You accept it.

You choose to accept it.
I refuse to accept it.

I refused to be bullied and beaten and battered by people who I love. I refuse to be the devil's little toy, that he can use and abuse and toss into the wind. I refuse to let anyone make less of me than what I really am. Cuz in Jesus, I am complete. I am whole. I am pure. So I will not accept the fate of this world. I will not sit down and let the same things happen to me over and over again. Christ through me, using me will allow me to be the one CHANGE that this world needs. To see a light. A hope. A future, in the will of God...

So that there won't be anymore suffering or pain. All eyes will be fixed on Him, who bore that pain FOR you.

In Him is peace. In Him alone, is salvation. Never again, will I allow myself to fall into that rut. Never again... I refuse to be the devil's footstool. I am the Lord's. Are you?
