50 Days of Promises (17): Because of Him

1 Corinthians 1:27-31

27 God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. 30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”


God created the heavens and the earth, He walked as man and died to free us from the punishment of sin, and rose so that we may be free in Him.

His promise is that we are being sanctified, redeemed, our lives written completely new by Him.

We simply need a deep and enduring faith and His majesty will wash in and through us by way of the Holy Spirit who indwells those who call on Christ as Lord and Savior.

We believe, He Sanctifies



Father God I thank you this morning for this missile to the heart that reminds me that there is nothing I do that Sanctifies, it is You who is at work in me leading me into deeper awareness of my shortcomings so that I may recognize all the more how great your sacrifice and how much more the miracle of new life it is that You give us. Thank You for my new life that struggles to live in the spirit more and be dead in the flesh completely. I choose to set my eyes upon you this day Father, that you may teach me more completely the ways You would have me walk. In Jesus name I pray…



Life is hard, and change is inevitable. Sometimes it is welcomed, and other times it is overwhelming. As a child abuse survivor who has struggled with mental illness such as anxiety, PTSD, ADD, OCD, addictions and mountains of self-worth issues, I now find myself resilient, empowered and filled with gratitude most days. But that doesn't come easy or natural. It takes intentionality. It takes faith. It takes patient endurance. It takes incredible amounts of self-awareness, honesty, humility, and courage to make choices that are the polar opposite of how you feel. It takes vision and determination, hope and healing. I'm glad you stopped by my blog, I hope you found something of use as I transparently share my journey with others, the highs and the lows, the wisdom and the blunders, in the hopes that my mess becomes a message of hope, encouragement, and strength for even one person. .
