The BE-ing HAPPITUDES!
Things are different since Grace was opened to me. Blessings are in each breath I take, most aches I have in my body and in most discouragements that slam me into pain, I see a constant ray of Hope – Not because I followed the law better but because of what I like to call “BE-ing HAPPITUDES!”
I never knew these while I was a “bad person” and would sneak around and commit my “secret sins.” I never got this lesson until I had been broken by my addiction, beaten down by the shame, guilt and basically feeling like trash. But once I grasped the poverty of who I was the Wealth of this new language came in.
Let me say one other thing before I start “BE-ing HAPPITUDES” – the reason it’s “most aches” and “most discouragements” above is that while Jesus made me legally perfect before God Almighty, my spirit still grows as I learn to release the laws and expectations ingrained in me at an early age by society, a church and so many other influences.
With that in mind here is the first “BEing HAPPITUDEs”-
BE-lieve – in the simple act of Believing with the minuscule Faith of a mustard seed Everything changes because you can begin to Rest Completely in His goodness since the law ends when Christ comes in!
“Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” – John 20:29
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” – John 11:25-26
