Unfortunately, I spent a lot of my early adult life trying to be everything to everyone.
I tried to create the person that I thought other people wanted me to be. I tried to please the whole world.
However, I failed miserably to recognize that I was never being true to myself. I failed in knowing God.
I used to lack in FAITH the ability to see who Jesus created me to be.
It was only through shards of pain and brokenness that the true LIGHT of the world provided me a way to open my eyes.
You see… Sometimes it takes being broken to build beauty, to be refined, to be MOLDED.
This new awareness caused me to lose friendships. Even people that I loved, in my own family, didn’t appreciate the NEW creation I was in CHRIST.
I was left standing alone.
I have been mocked, laughed at, and in some cases, made into the enemy of those I once shared a dinner table with.
