Contrasts

This writing is a study on what I used to be compared to what I am now in Christ. It is only by His grace and mercy that I am a new creature! I am so thankful for the truth of 2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

Contrasts

No longer dying from self destruction
Now living with divine purpose
No longer hiding my shame
Now baring my soul
No longer seeking what could not fill
Now filled to overflowing
No longer trading blessings for sin
Now trading sin for blessings
No longer pretending to know the truth
Now set free by the truth
No longer blinded by deception
Now exposing lies
No longer dissatisfied with life
Now satisfied with His life
No longer chasing happiness
Now resting in His peace
No longer taking for granted His sacrifice
Now embracing His restitution
No longer trampling His grace
Now existing only by His grace
No longer stumbling in darkness
Now walking in the light
No longer bound by chains
Now running in freedom.
No longer dying without Him
Now living for Him.
