This post is not to complain, because I LOVE my life in Christ. It’s to shed light on the simple truths that people may not tell you when you welcome salvation….
1. You lose people
You start falling in love with God, and sometimes you may be the only person for a while that is committing and one by one they all flee. When those people flee, God replaces them with incredible, God-fearing, world shakers that awaken something in you and causes you to be a better you.
You begin to feel guilty with every single thing you do, sometimes it’s hard to sleep because you can’t stop thinking about yesterday’s mistake, but in those moments God gently whispers in your ears “Christ died for you, so you can live. I LOVE YOU and nothing will ever change that.”
3. You have to reassess everything
You may have been going down a path that doesn’t align with the path that God uniquely created for you, so now you have to start from point A and figure it all out……..actually, you just start from where you are because God has it all already figured it out and He knew you would get to this point before you did.
You know now that I think about it being a Christian isn’t hard at all, life without God is hard. Waking up everyday relying on your strength, depending on your own schemes, self-soothing with temporary things. Been there done that and I wouldn’t trade my new found freedom with anything.
