It’s Time To “Be You”

Dear saints,

I feel that God wants to encourage you to keep being free to be “you”.

You have been set free by the truth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior.

You are no longer your old self, but a new person in Jesus Christ.

Your struggles in the past shall nurture you to become a stronger witness to Jesus Christ’s wisdom and love and grace.

Your learning in the shadow of death will not be wasted but encourage many others who need hope of light.

You are given the gift of speaking His truthful message in love and the Holy Spirit is your wonderful counselor to continue to lead you to the people, who need to hear God’s word for themselves.

God delights in you as His faithful and good servant to be obedient to speak out His truth with as much faith as He has given you.

You will continue to shine to those who hear God through you and they shall fear God and put their trust and hope in Him alone because of your testimony and role modeling.

Here is the verse I want to give you from Psalm 40:2-3

He lifted me out of the slimy pit,

    out of the mud and mire;

he set my feet on a rock

    and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth,

    a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear the Lord

    and put their trust in him.

***

Praise God is your Freedom Giver! May God’s light keep shining through you. Arise and shine!

Shalom, your praying comrade
