There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. ~Louis L'Amour~
We typically must first come to the end of ourselves, before we can truly see that which is truly important and begin to live fully from the heart. If you feel like your world is falling apart, take cheer...it simply means that you are very close to a new revelation of who you really are. Remember, what the caterpillar considers the end, is only the beginning to the butterfly. Trust that you will be given wings to fly!
Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God. ~John 3:3 (Amp)~ He told them this parable: "No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins." ~Jesus / Luke 5:36-38 (NIV)~ Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]. [No] even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now [we have such knowledge of Him that] we know Him no longer [in terms of the flesh]. Therefore, if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! ~2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (Amp)~
