Storytime – THE DAY MY LIFE WAS MADE BEAUTIFUL
Ever heard the saying “Your story is the key that can unlock someone else’s prison. Share it.”
This was supposed to be the best title to get you to come and read what i had to say, but by the time i was done writing, I realized this was more of an affirmation than a disclosure story. I choose to share it still, because who knows what prisons will be unlocked.
Its obvious we all go through rough times, things are not now they way they should be, you struggle the most and sometimes wonder why, everything you have done can’t seem to get you more than a little respite. Trust me when i say I still live that life because its the best backdrop for the beauty that shines through today.
Today i live freely,
I may not have what you have, or whatever you think I’m lacking but the truth is that everything i have today, i deserve. I just needed to ask boldly to get it. Some came almost immediately, others arrived just when i had forgotten that i asked and in that moment i realized that what i have is an express ticket to living the life i desire. Guess what, My life was made beautiful the day i got that express ticket.
Today i live debt free,
I may not show off that much, maybe its because i still feel indebted. Sometimes i wonder if i will ever be able to repay, yet i cannot seem to survive the slightest distance away from my benefactor. Interesting thing is that, i wasn’t even there when the transaction was done many years ago but my debt was paid in full, ahead of my arrival for that matter. My life was made beautiful the day he paid the debt, i could never pay.
My life was made beautiful on that 3rd day, and everyday till i am no more i celebrate the beauty that my life now is. The life of the Risen Christ. A life of the greatest love the world will ever know. Everyday in my weakness he is made strong. Everyday i exchange trouble for triumph, fear for faith, infirmity for health, law for grace, pain for happy endings. Despite all that he has done, i can’t help the fact that i still cannot do without him. Who on earth can be so giving?
- I have everything i need
- I don’t need to beg to be loved
- I no longer need validation from the world
- I no longer need to live in despise of the ugly past
- I no longer have to live in fear of the what the future is for me
- I have an eternal access to a fountain of mercy and the throne of grace.
Don’t get it twisted, it didn’t come that easy. Something had to give, It came at a cost. I would have never been able to pay my way through for such a connection! Now The only thing left behind after the transaction that day is a beautiful cross and an empty grave. Everything could have seemed like a lie but with these i am so sure.
Do you believe there is a cross, do you believe there is an empty grave? If yes, then he came for you too and he has made your life just as beautiful as mine. I have chosen to Celebrate the risen Christ everyday and every i am reminded that in his story, i am promised the goodness of the earth and its fullness.
I know this sounds like someone’s story ? Is that you? Are you going to tell it to unlock someone’s prison?
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
– Heb 12 vs 1-2
