This or That?

Our past often tell us we are "that" and we believe it. But God tells us we are "this" now in Him who created us. But I like to argue with Him & tell him...No, Lord, I am still "that"...maybe something hurtful I believe about myself or maybe something others make me feel about myself.

God wants me to believe I'm always..."this" even on the days I still feel like "that".  How do I keep from feeling like "that"? Constantly being in His word & growing in my relationship with Him keeps me from feeling like "that". When I believe I'm "this" I make good decisions & walk in Him daily.

When I come to a crossroad of decision I think "I still feel like "that", but God says I'm "this". How would "this" behave in this situation? Over time my habits & actions began to change & I started behaving more like "this". After all..."this" is who I am.

"This" is who you are also my friend. You belong to Him...tell "that" you are "this" now.

I have this little Devo Book by Beth Moore that takes about 2 minutes to read each morning & it feeds my heart like you wouldn't believe. Today she talked about "this & that" & it made me really think about how I let "that" former life affect me still, I pray that I begin to live daily "this" life God has called me to live & let go of "that" for good.

Now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death
 to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him. 
Colossians 1:22. 


  1. Wow, great thoughts! Needed that with some church stuff, especially the part about acting like "this"-including words and actions!! Thanks!

  2. Oh my, THIS is good!! What book is it ?? I need to get me one! :)

    Love you girl

  3. I like THIS a lot... now can I say "Believe THAT"? (just kidding)... this is truly a great reminder for us who tend to see ourselves as "THAT woman".
    Bless your heart!

  4. I couldn't help but think that your post sounded like the lesson by Beth Moore (Believing God). She's one of my favorite Bible teachers! Thanks for this great reminder! God bless!

  5. A great word, sister! I just sent you an email response to one you sent me long ago. Web troubles, ugh!

    Much love,
