Sneak Peek

The first step in our new journey is undoubtedly getting off that old train of thought.

Let's be honest though.

Those old thoughts are familiar terrain. Like roads drivable with eyes closed. That's comforting. Even if their pot holes cause emotional.mental.spiritual.physical blow-outs. They don't fail us... so we take that same ol' fork at Negative Blvd.

So friends, our first step is to consciously decide "I am getting. off. that. old. train." Reject it. Stamp our feet in refusal to travel that way. Jump off.

I want to share a preview of the mode of transport we're going to hop aboard to give us something to look forward to. Consider me your travel agent and these words a beautiful, full-color brochure of our brand spank'n new train of thought

"I am"
{Blessed} {Chosen} {Lavished with grace}
{Blameless} {Holy} {Predestined}
{Redeemed} {Forgiven} {Adopted}
{Included} {Planned} {Purposed}
{Free} {Focus of God's love} {Hopeful}
~Ephesians 1

Read Ephesians 1 when you get a chance {in a few different translations}. May I encourage you to write down everything this passage says about you? Then write down everything it says about Christ? Let me know your thoughts!

We're in for a sweet ride friends!! All aboard!

It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. ~Eph. 1

Not sure you will read or see this but I read Eph 1 and heres what I got.

I am: Blessed Chosen holy, without fault,( as the Father created me) adopted,united with Christ, loved, free, forgiven, set apart blameless, above reproach, revealed as his own child, and pleasing to him.

Debi, that's AWESOME!! I love that you saw yourself and who you are in Eph. 1! That's so exciting. Write them on the tablet of your heart and remember how faithful He is :)

Thanks for sharing girl!
