I've really been struggling this past month with a lot, stuff pulling at my heart, breaking me down, and then there are moments of positivity that pick me back up again. Or I see God at work in my life, and others, hear him telling me something and I'm reminded this struggle is never my own. And it's more than the fact that everyone has their own struggles, difficulties, drama, negativity, depression. It's the realization that Jesus is my life and he not only carries me but wants to live through me.
Yesterday's sermon at Momentum was extremely powerful for me.
I am dead to my life but living in Christ. Jesus wants to live the encore of his life in MY life. In everyone's lives. I can't solve my anger, my sadness, my financial problems, my sufferings, but Jesus can. He can fix me and I can live in him. And because I live in him, my life has meaning, not because of the job I go to every day, or how I'm educated, or how much money I make, but because he is living the life of loving God, loving people, and serving the world, in me. He's saved me from the mess of myself.
