Last night was our Celebrate Recovery one. It was to be a testimony for the large group time and we sometimes use a video testimony when a live one isn’t accessible. Instead of an actual testimony, the leader who puts this together used the Skit Guys’ production of God chiseling away on man to make him into more of His Likeness. I can’t remember the name of it or I’d add it here. Boy, did this skit hit home for me. It was a perfect representation of God’s Work this past year as I’ve endeavored to live each day believing I am a new creation. There is so much God has needed to chisel away from my beliefs and to replace those lies with TRUTH about Him, His Son, and His Holy Spirit.
I’ve reflected a great deal about being a new creation of late. As my journey continues I simply have to write this because it is the truth of my journey. I suppose as this new year is about to enter I will continue to be awakened. The more I awaken the more my passion builds to help others believe this truth for themselves. As I was sharing in our small group time last night one young man was all teary as he shared. The reality of God’s chiseling on his life hit him as it had me. We think God will discover the hidden darkness in us if we let Him chisel too deeply. My word, to think God doesn’t already know this darkness and wants to take this darkness and replace it with LIGHT–HIS LIGHT. What a grateful soul I am!
