too LONG i believed lies

 I’ve had enough of all the lies that have covered my eyes. I have had enough of truth being clouded by seething deception. I have had enough of breaking my gaze from Christ’s face. I have had enough. No more, no more!

I will no longer be sucked below the water by fear. I will no longer be suffocated by its ghastly waters. It will no longer distort my vision of truth. I will not be pulled from the gaze of Christ. Or so these lies told me I was.

Too long I have believed lies about my life. Too long has my identity been subtly distorted. Too long has fear rampaged in the cloak of deceit. I am a child of God. I am whole as a child of God. I am accepted in love by Christ. I am saved by God’s grace.

 

 The standards that have been set are, lies. I am worthy to follow Christ. I can follow Christ and live for Him even with my faults. For it is not so much how I can follow, as to how He leads me.
By His strength, do I live. 
By His love, am I whole.
By His grace, am I saved.
By His blood, am I made perfect. 
I merely gaze upon the nature of God and that is all.
For I am a child of God.
