Then n Now

I've fought to become her.

                      Oh, if we could only tell ourselves then, what we know now.  Life is a journey of trials that make us stronger and hopefully wiser.  Yes, I've been knocked down, but not out.. I've been tried, but not defeated.. I've been hurt, but not completely.
                      2 Corinthians 4;8-9  ''We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.''
                      Life is a series of battles, where we win some and lose some, but to win the war we need Christ.  Sanctification is the process of growing in Christ to become the person God intended us to be, after being saved.  We do have to fight against the worldliness that we face each day, because temptations surround us.
                      Is the life of Jesus being revealed in your body?  Are you striving to be more Christ-like in your words, thoughts and actions?  The fight continues until we are called to our heavenly Home.
