There have been many moment in my life where I have suddenly had a revelation, if you will, about a seemingly elementary principle. This night was one of them. I suddenly truly grasped who I am in Christ. For a long time now, I have felt totally and completely secure in who I am and who He made me to be, but I think I really got it. First of all, I am a friend of God. What is a friend exactly? My friends mean the world to me. I love every second I spend with them and cherish every moment. It amazes me that God would feel that way about me. Not only does He want me to want to spend time with Him, but He also wants to spend time with me. This has never been a one sided relationship. He really wants my friendship. Second of all, I am a conqueror. When someone says that something was conquered, what does it bring to mind? Complete obliteration. Destruction. Overpowering. Through Him, I am a conqueror of sin. He has bestowed upon me the power to completely obliterate, destroy, and overpower sin in my life. But most importantly, I am His. Totally, completely, undoubtedly His, and nothing can ever take that away. I pray that I never get over that fact.

Jesus, Savior, in my life You are everything. my future decided, I will praise Your name. I know that I am Yours!"
