Kendall Harmon at T-19 and Sarah Hey at SF have posted this video and I just wept through it while watching it here at my table in Saxby's at Dupont Circle. Indeed, the Lord doesn't leave us where He finds us, but lifts us up and transforms our lives - therefore is anyone is in Christ they are a new creation, the old has passed away, behold, all things become new (II Cor. 5:17).
If we were to write a cardboard testimony, what would it say? What do we want it to say? Do you believe God can do it? Through you? In you? Yes, He can. Yes, He will. All we need to do is ask - that's all. We simply ask Him to come into our life and make us new. "Come into my life, Lord Jesus, and make me new." No matter how long, or how short we've been following Jesus - or even if we haven't followed Jesus at all - that prayer changes everything.
