There’s So much to share…

I haven’t always been a woman with faith. Honestly, it is only when you meet Jesus for yourself that faith has a fighting chance. Before finding the acceptance Christ offers, I lived with a spirit of rejection. It was there to greet me at birth. My thoughts were filtered by fear in a way that only let the negative get through. I have always had a hyper personality. It’s possible that developed only to help distract me from thoughts that were never my own.

At birth, I was given the name Leslie. Through a journey of forgiveness, God has shown me my name without the “lie” being ingrained within it. Les is the name I go by now.  God spoke to my spirit, “I am taking the lies that you’ve answered to since the moment you were born.” I don’t know about you, but I’m down for that. 

It was like my mind was unlocked and I was able to be outside of my head for the first time in my life. It was so freeing! All those years walled in and finally, I was free. I’ve heard the verse, “The truth will make you free.” I had just never thought about what it would actually be freeing me from. Lies. The truth will make you free from the lies that keep you in a life where there are only walls that project what the enemy wants you to see.

God has so much to teach us and I pray that I remain an eternal student of His goodness and grace.
