letting go of what we are not.

20140226_150231I am so pleased the weather is now changing. It was lovely to come across these in the garden last week.

I have had a phrase on my mind lately ‘letting go of things that aren’t working in your life’.

I feel we go through things in life as a test and to grow closer to God, and being who we are in Christ so we can use our gifts and our lives to serve Him so He gets the Glory.

YET  we still choose to  do things in our own strength and try to be someone we are not,

which I have done for many years. When we are free in Christ, He gives us the strength and the beauty that we need. He has made us to be who we are. And being who we are in Him will leave more of a legacy then fame, riches and beauty the world holds and shapes us to be.

For I have plans for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you a hope and a future-Jeremiah 29.11

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s spirit lives in you- 1 Corinthians 3:16
