When we give our hearts and lives to Christ the bible says that we are new creatures. 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
I started a journey a few months back and although I've been saved awhile I really took a look at some things and asked God to re-raise me. I asked him to teach me his ways, to lead me, to guide me so that I could be more like him. He pulled the bottom out, he started showing me things I didn't like but needed to see about myself and he started dealing with me on some issues I'd buried. I had to cut some people off, I had to SEVER some ties, go through my playlist and my tv schedule to evaluate who I'd become. God said I'm going to teach you MY ways so walk with me. Fasted, prayed and let me tell you dying daily is not easy. My flesh... I want to do what I want to do and that's my flesh. God has some plans and I have to get out of the way. He's has a purpose but there's some stuff he has to remove and some people he had to remove to get my attention. Total surrender and dependence on Christ is where and when he does his best work! When we put down our stuff and get in alignment with him he starts changing us. I wasn't having the best morning and normally after having an attitude I'd brush it off but I felt so convicted. I told God I'm sorry for misrepresenting you. I'm preparing for the next season, the comments from people will be strong but I have to do what God told me to do a year ago. I've been faithful, I trust him with my life and I trust his plan. He's my father and he knows what's best for me.
