Jesus is greater than I have ever portrayed him to be.

I’m not really interested. I think that the Evolution theory of Charles Darwin sounds really weird. It doesn’t explain anything in his theory. The foundation of his theory is not strong. Support for his theory is weak. I don’t know why a lot of people believed it. But what I know is that, if they really know the ‘Creation in the bible’, they will doubt the evolution theory. The ‘creation in the bible’ supports everything. It has a strong foundation and it explains things that can’t be explained. Everything true is in the bible. :) sorry for the late reply. Haha. I really don’t know how to answer this.
Your identity is in Christ.
"And when I see myself the way God sees me, I walk with confidence because I trust the One who answers the question: Who am I?"
True contentment can only be found in an intimate love relationship with the Lord, not in anything else, including a romantic love story.
Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.
I have judged others, lied, indulged in secret sin, disobeyed the parents, dishonored God’s holy day, among many transgressions. Yet God’s unfailing, amazing grace and mercy never ceases to drown me, even washing my shame away. He knows we fail. I’m not perfect. We are not perfect. Christians are not perfect but through our imperfections Christ perfects us to be more like Him.
When it comes to sin, the only one who has a right to condemn others is Jesus. And he refused.
The Christian way is different: harder and easier. Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch here and a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down. I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out. Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked — the whole outfit. I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself: my own will shall become yours.’
