Laying my flesh to rest

Happy Post-Valentines Day!

God continues to do exceedingly abundantly what I could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Yesterday, I was pretty bummed because my Valentine plans with the gentleman I have been seeing fell through. I tried not to react to what happened, but let’s just say I didn’t try hard enough. As I scrolled through social media, I saw how everyone was sharing their stories and pictures, and I didn’t have much to share. I didn’t even want to talk to anyone because I knew they’d asked how my day was going.

As the day went on, I told myself that things happen and Valentine’s is a man-made holiday anyway, so it’s whatev’. As the day went on I couldn’t shake the feeling of disappointed. I let the gentleman know how I felt, only after he shared he was upset we had to cancel too. Thoughts that could threaten our relationship entered my mind. However, I pushed them out as quickly as they came. Reminding myself that this relationship is different. I can trust this man. Even though I wasn’t happy about our canceled Valentine’s date, I wouldn’t do what I usually do. Which is stop responding to messages/calls and go into hiding until I felt better. I know that in #DyingDaily I can’t do things as I used to do & expect change. God’s WORD tells me I am a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). As I grow in Christ; He grows in me. Shaping me to be the best I can be in Him. God knows I cannot do it alone and I’m grateful that I don’t have too.
