Haven’t posted a lot of new things lately, but if this current work assignment has given me one thing, it’s a lot of time to think. What I’ve been thinking about the most lately is that things are different now for me then they’ve ever been.
This has come to pass in stages rather than all at once, but I honestly believe that nothing at all would have ever happened had it not been for the first thing. And that thing was realizing that I mattered to the One responsible for everything, that the one who crafted the stars had also been responsible for crafting me in all my flawed and imperfect glory. And I don’t mean just knowing in my head. More importantly, this realization was a truth I felt in my heart since I met Him.
The best way I’ve ever seen that represented is in a scene from the tv show, The Chosen:
Mary Tells Nicodemus about the difference Jesus made in her life and I’d say it was a similar experience for me:
I was one way, and now I am completely different. And the thing that happened between was him.
Not exactly the same for me, of course, but similar.
I was one way, and now I am completely different.
The thing that happened in between was him.
