“It’s public now. The world knows your story. You are going to fail at this again. Why are you even trying? How embarrassing.” A voice repeated these thoughts into my mind like a broken record. I know that voice. I know the voice of the enemy. It’s far too familiar. He has tried many times to bring me down. In the past he succeed. But not today. Today I know that I am “fearfully and wonderfully made”. Today I know that a high price was paid for my freedom. For a minute I stayed in bed contemplating the social media post that I shared the night before about RBL. I thought of the tears, the hugs, and all the encouraging words. I’ve had a lot of conversations with God throughout my time as a christian; however, today I have a different prayer. Today I “demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and (I) take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”. Christ is my King, He is my life. I don’t need to be afraid, ashamed or embarrassed, my thoughts will be renewed daily in Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV
