My feet are firm...........

Wow! How time flies when you are having fun living in the joy of the Lord! Ha ha! Recently, I have gone back through many of my old posts on this here blog of mine and realized many things. One, I can't get enough of this glorious gospel of grace and reminding myself and others of who I am in Christ! It never gets old! Another thing I noticed is, that the way I see things is shifting. There are some things I may have written in the past on this blog that were the way I saw it at the time, but now I see things differently. Don't get me wrong the truth hasn't changed, just my perception of it. It's like going up a spiral staircase, going round and round until I get higher up. The more I have delved into the truth of the finished work of the Cross the more my heart grips it's truth all the more firmly. I shall not be moved! Ha! 
I used to be more confused, used to have to more attacks on my spirit of condemnation and guilt, used to be weary and feel weak. Believing the truth changed all of that. 
I choose to be contented by the fact that Christ dwells in me, and He is more than enough. My life is complete in Him, I have no lack or want or need or sickness! This is the beauty of life in Him. We can live so free, in such inner peace that even when circumstances come at us, we will not be shaken!! 
So I will be here standing on the Rock, the waves can come and slap me in the face, but that's ok, my feet are held firm in Him, by His grace................Peace to all! Shalom peace!!!

I would like to know some of the ways your thinking/perspective has changed, Lydia.

By the way, I have been reading some of your old posts and really enjoying them!

Most of my shifting has been from external living to internal living - some thoughts on charismatic issues have shifted. I want Word and Spirit for sure, but I had to induct myself into charismania for a bit to see it for myself.
Now I just want to live from the inside out - it's Christ in me the hope of glory!!!

Peace to you! Glad you are enjoying the archives :D
