It’s very, very fierce.
Jesus has done so much for me. He saved me.
Literally saved me.
I can’t even remember what it was like when I became a believer of Jesus Christ for the first time. I was very young. I kinda just grew up knowing Him. And I loved Him with all of my heart.
But then this happened.
About 8-9 years ago I fell into a trap. This trap led me to believe that I wasn’t good enough for Jesus’ love anymore. It led me to believe I wasn’t worth being a mother or wife. I didn’t think I was capable and I didn’t think I was worthy. I know that sounds dramatic. Well- it was dramatic. I will tell you in all honesty that it’s a miracle I’m even here today. And I don’t tell you that so that you’ll feel sorry for me, I tell you that because it’s the truth.
I will never forget the day that a little glimmer of hope came springing to life in my soul.
It was my husband.
My husband gave me that glimmer of hope that was Jesus Christ.
He loved me even though I didn’t deserve it.
He loved me when he had every reason to shut me out of his life forever.
It’s like Jesus. Jesus loved me, too. He loved me when he had every reason to shut me out of His life.
I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that my husband still wanted me.
I couldn’t believe that Jesus still wanted me.
I couldn’t believe that my husband still loved me.
I couldn’t believe that Jesus still loved me.
My husband helped me start believing again.
And when I started believing again, I found a love that was fierce.
The fierce love of my Savior.
I began seeing life as though it wasn’t mine. I began taking care to not waste one moment. I would read the bible and it jumped out at me. Each word was personally meaningful. I began spending time with Him because I longed for it, not because I needed to check it off my to-do list.
It changed me. It changed the way I saw my family. It changed the way I saw those around me. I started seeing everything with His eyes.
It changed everything from the inside out. Real change can only come from the inside out. #fiercelove Click To Tweet
I started deeply disliking religion. Judgement. Rituals.
It made me sick to my stomach.
I started identifying more with those that didn’t go to church or that didn’t even know Jesus more than I identified with those that did.
I started becoming who I was deeply meant to be all along.
When you go through hard times, if you will just hang in there…and let God genuinely change you from the inside out, you will find your calling and who you’ve been meant to be all along.
But you’ll need to hang on even when it gets tough.
Because I promise you it’s going to get tough.
Never let go. Never. Ever. Let go.
I still make mistakes and I’m far from perfect. Thank the Lord he doesn’t call me to be perfect but instead He calls me to be perfectly flawed in this world.
I love big and I love fierce. I will fight for my family and I will fight for those I love. I do this because of Jesus.
You can too. He loves you FIERCELY and He WILL NOT let go of you no matter how bad you mess up. He loves you my dear friend! So so much.
And I love you too.
I hope I’ve left you with some encouragement today. Let me know if I did in the comments, okay?
And much, much love to you!
