Back to the Basics
I’ve been taken back. Taken back to the basics. What is Her Nature? I have been challenged lately to answer this question. Have you ever wondered what Her Nature is? Well let’s talk about it.
I have answered this question before but I have really had to think about it lately because honestly I had to ask myself am I portraying myself as Her Nature. Do I see a young woman who has been revived, refreshed, repurposed, and relived. I had to decline and write off my own question because I couldn’t answer it truthfully. What is worse than you lying to yourself.
Some of you all know a little bit of my testimony. To those who don’t know, I was in college doing the college life to the max. And I mean to the MAX! Well at least what felt like the max for me anyways. It was not until my last week in college before graduation that I was sitting in my bed weeping in tears because though I gained a couple of new friends who are dear to my heart I felt empty and alone. I sat in my bed feeling helpless and torn down. This was a place I knew way too well and it kept me bound. I felt unusable, unwanted and betrayed. I held on to things in my heart like bitterness and resentment that made me so unhealthy. However, despite my state, right there in my bed I encountered my first true known experience with My Father. In that moment, I surrender and gave my life to Christ. Literally y’all right there in my bed! No choir, no music, no Pastor. Nobody. Just me and God.
After that time, I found myself in a place of discovery. Discovering who Ericka is in this new beginning of my life. Because as many of us know once we give our lives to Christ we are born again into new creations. All old things are passed away and gone and the new us is here in our present -2 Corinthians 5:17-18. But what did that really mean to me? How was I made anew and how was I refreshed, repurposed so that I may be able to relive my life? That is where Her Nature came into my life.
What was my nature, her nature, your nature? What makes you who you are? 2 Peter 1:3-4 states His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. So what does that mean??? We have it already y’all! We have the ability through our Father to experience so much more to our lives through the knowledge of Him. We have the power to be all He created us to be to experience His glory and goodness.
Wow! This is blowing my mind just reading this to myself after having this as Her Nature’s themed scripture for the past three years!
Now, tell me...
