Day 17: No Longer Me


I don't know who I am anymore,

because I refuse to be me anymore.

When I am me

I get all wrapped up in

what I want when I want it.

When I am me

I expect my expectations to come to fruition.

When I am me

I can't feel anything else but me

and that gets lonely

and overwhelming

.because who wants to be so consumed with yourself

It is like being stuck in a cocoon

just waiting & waiting & waiting

without any

HOPE that you will ever

be different

feel different

&

live different.

Leaving me for HIM.

When you leave yourself behind

you realize that there is a LIFE beyond yourself,

that you never knew existed,

that is way better than

getting what you want when you want it

&

that is way better than your striving to meet your own expectations

&

that is way better

than living in what you feel.

Oh Surrender. Oh Letting Go.

Oh just Giving up

LIVING IN ME

because there is the better option~

LIVING IN HIM~

that sets you free from your own cocoon

because

we were not created to be a caterpillar.

ME~ NO LONGER AN OPTION

YOU~ NO LONGER AN OPTION

because there is a better

LIFE CHANGING OPTION

that

sets you free from

crawling through life~

Even when life gets tough,

because it does gets tough.

Even when nothing appears to be going your way,

because everything isn't going to go your way.

Even when you are waiting for something or someone to change,

because there will always be something or someone who you are waiting

to be different.

But being different isn't as dynamic as

being TRANSFORMED

from the inside out.

For when your WINGS start to emerge

you wonder if they are really yours

because they start to take you

to spaces & places

beyond who you thought you were born to be

and

INto

who HE created you to be~

ALL HIS~

Today. Tomorrow. Forever.

Will you make

JESUS your ONLY OPTION

so that you can not only FLY,

but SOAR above every ARROW that strives to keep you stuck in your cocoon?

FORGIVEN. FAVORED. FREE.

No Longer me. No Longer you.

Because

"if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come"

(2 Corinthians 5:17)

Thank YOU JESUS

that YOU are my ONLY OPTION~

and that is

"WHO YOU ARE TO ME" (listen to the song below)
