Happy Truthful Tuesday, wonderful people!
Thank you for sticking with me through a bit of travel and busyness, but we are back in business!
To be completely honest with you guys, I’ve been going through a season of spiritual stagnancy, and that can be a really hard thing to battle. If you’re reading this right now and you’re in that season, I would encourage you to not let it shake your belief- God is bigger than it all, and this season will end.
While I was in high school, I was introduced to Tim Timmons, and his song ‘Christ in Me’. Here’s a snippet of the lyrics:
And what, what if I believed in Your power,
And I really lived it?
What, what if I believed Christ in me
What if I believed?
I would lay my worries down
See these hills as level ground
What if I believed, Christ in me?
What if we truly believed that the power of God is living in us? Would you change how you act? Would you be bolder in your conversations? Would you sacrifice more of your time to serve others? If you truly believed that the Creator of the universe was in you and you could do mighty things, would you?
It can be so so easy to accept God into your life, but to act like He’s not with you all the time. He’s living inside of you! Friends, this is so beautiful. What if you truly believed in His transformational power? What if we still had that child-like faith that still believed He could do anything?
In the laughing, He’s in you. In the crying, He’s in you. In the tough conversations, He’s in you. Through the fear, He’s in you. When the devil is pulling on your heart, He’s in you.
“I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.”
Here, Paul did not say “I live in a Christ-like way,” or, “I glorify Christ through my behavior.” No, he said, “Christ…lives in me,” clearly telling us that Christ lives in His believers. The Christian life is not a matter of behaving like Christ, but of allowing Christ Himself to live in and through us.

I challenge you to live this week truly believing in Christ’s power. Man guys, imagine how we could impact the world for Christ’s kingdom if we all truly believed and acted in this truth.
Check out Tim Timmons’ song below! (Also, a great idea would be setting your alarm to wake up to this song every morning. I just did it!)
