Christ In Me.

 

IMG_6931
This is me. Me, on the day I asked Christ to live in me. This was before I asked him. This is the face of someone wrestling with God, really wresting. That night I went home and I knelt beside my bed. I said, “God I know I’m not the centre of the world, you are. Jesus, I want to live your way but I don’t know how. Can you show me?” It wasn’t the typical sinners’ prayer but God understood because he hears our hearts.

 

Today I thought I’d post a poem about how beautiful it is to have Christ in us, and to be in Christ. I hope you are encouraged.

Christ In Me

Christ in me,

And me in Christ.

My heart is hopeful,

Jesus you are right here with me.

I am confident with you,

And the joy it overflows.

 

Christ in me,

And me in Christ.

My heart is peaceful,

Jesus you are right here with me.

I am free of fear with you,

And the joy it overflows.

 

Christ in me,

And me in Christ.

My heart is thankful,

Jesus you are right here with me.

I am gracious now with you,

And the joy it overflows.

 

Christ in me,

And me in Christ.

My heart is faithful,

Jesus you are right here with me.

I am purposeful with you,

And the joy it overflows.

 

Christ in me,

And me in Christ.

My heart is loving,

Jesus you are right here with me.

I am powerful with you,

And the joy it overflows.

Be blessed today, you are loved more than you know, God wants to give you peace beyond what you understand. Be encouraged to ask Christ to live in you. Be encouraged to live in Christ. Be encouraged to share your heart with him. It is a joyful way to live. Like, share, comment and let me pray with you.

Lots of love,

L.

    • P.S. Are you a cancer survivor, too, dear Lauren? I noticed you sport a very bold and stylish look in this photo that few have the courage to adopt. 🙂 I wore the same style some years back. Huge hugs!! ❤ ❤

      • Hi Lynn, no I am not, my mum is though and years before she was diagnosed she helped me by shaving my head to raise money for cancer. It was also the day I gave my life to Christ and my mum was pivotal in my decision. I think me having been bald for six months in support, helped my mum, years later not to be afraid to go bald herself.
        Isn’t God amazing. Both my parent’s faith was grown so much fighting cancer. They learned to trust so completely.
        I learned a lot about perception and people’s judgement in those six months, as well as falling in love with Jesus. It was one of my favourite hairstyles. Lots of love, L
