I Used To…

I believe our stories shape our lives. There are things that we choose to do that we may not be proud of. We have hurt others and others have hurt us. But each of these experiences shape us and mold us into something new.

Redemption.

Forgiveness.

Second Chances.

Praise God for new beginnings. Covered by his blood, we can start anew.

Drug addicts.

Prostitutes.

Liars.

Murderers.

Slanderers.

Offense. Offense. Offense.

If we are honest with ourselves, we are not unlike any of the above. Our depravity follows us closely. But it doesn’t have to define us. I often find encouragement and refreshment from those who are able to break free of who they used to be and establish a new life – a fresh start. Your story doesn’t have to be dramatic but a changed heart speaks for itself.

What’s your story?

I used to be___________ but now I am ____________.

I used to be lost but now I am found.
