Breaking Free: my testimony of the Bible Study journey

Going back over the Bible Study program the ladies in my church have worked through this morning, and I'm just....well...overflowing with gratitude in my heart. You see, sometime this past year (I believe it was around the first of the year I faced the challenge) I knew my mind needed some renewal. Walking in relationship with God has been one of a journey, not one of a one time deal and decision. Sanctification is what is happening day by day as He is working in my life and I commit my ways to Him. Beth Moore gave a wonderful visual description for us by describing it as removing lies from the wallpaper of our minds, and rewallpapering with God's truths...

but the most important part of that for me is agreement with His truth. Truths that don't change based on how good or bad of a day I'm having. Truths like:

::God's love is unfailing.

::He is for me and is working all things out for good.

::He is sovereign.

Finding those truths to be foundational, the living and rest and comfort flow from that bounty. And it is bountiful.

Christ said:
"Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

So I guess I can say He's been healing my sight :) and I am overflowing with praise.
