The "real" me
Posted under: Personal Growth
I’ve known Jesus for 19 plus years now and many of those years I spent hiding from him. I was afraid of what He may really think of me if he truly met the real me. Would he see me as a fraud masquerading as one of his followers. My greatest fear was to be known by those in the church because I was certain I would be rejected if people knew all of me.
Now I understand I can’t hide from God for nothing in all creation is hidden from him. As my relationship with Jesus deepened; I’ve allowed him to heal me from the hurts and disappointments of life. The healing process has often times been painful and unpleasant but worthwhile for it truly has cleansed me from sins which has concealed the “real” me from God and others. Layers of me have been peeled off little by little so that what you see today is more of God and less of me. I learned to be real with Jesus and as a result, I am more comfortable being his beloved creation. Each time God heals an area in my life, I become a little more like him.
May God’s healing power come over every area of our lives, cleansing us from everything that would separate us from Him and draw us nearer to his heart. Then, the world can see the “real” person God created in each of us.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
