Lay it down

Laying my burdens down before the King of all Creation, asking for cleansing for all my filth, for all my ugliness, forgive me for being so shameless. Help me to be strong in You, to follow you and run from wrong..

Is my stone too big to roll away?

If the stone that covered the tomb could be rolled away, is God able to handle the stone in your life? That thing for which you don’t believe you can be forgiven…

is your stone too big to roll away?

Yes, there are days that I believe my stone is too big to roll away… and true enough, by my own strength it is…

I sometimes forget that the same power that rose Jesus from the grave lives inside of me…that God has sent the Holy Spirit to live inside of me to give me strength when I am weak… when I don’t think I can roll the stone away.

Too often, I feel like I am trapped in my old sins, in my old patterns of self destruction. But God shows me differently.

He shows me that, “if I confess my sins, he is faithful and just and will cleanse us from all unrighteousness”. 1 John 1:9

When we confess our sins, and he forgives, he cleanses us and makes us new. The old things are put behind us. We are a new creature in Him

Blessed to be a new creature today, my friends.

In Him,

SB

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
