alive in the shadows

Are you alive in Christ but still living in a shadow of the past?

Maybe Jesus has been your Savior for years but you’re still holding onto secret hurts, secret circumstances, secret regrets. Are you protecting a person or situation that should be brought into the light? Has the enemy convinced you that everybody will look at you differently if they knew your secret? Are you overwhelmed thinking about what will happen if you were to tell someone?

I can relate to you and it was timely that our Pastor began a mini-series on “Restoration” yesterday. I have experienced incredible worship and the power of Jesus in my life in spite of living in a shadow.

Why settle? Why not keep running forward and be as sold out as possible and experience an even deeper level of worship and relationship with Christ by fully letting go…putting audible words to that last chain so it can be broken…being willing to to not be afraid and trust God for the outcome?

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and DO NOT BE AFRAID.” (John 14:27- with emphasis added)
