Identity in Yeshua- "I am a new creature"

Identity in Yeshua- "I am a new creature"
In order to be something new it means that something else has to die, In order for You to become a new creation it means your old self has to die. (Luke 9:23) Imagine having to die daily just so you can live? The ironic part is that many of us are in-fact already dead, in our soul, our spirit, in our thoughts, actions, behaviors, etc. We may be physically alive but we are all dead when we are separated from God. Because our very design and creation wasn't meant to live apart from Him. "Carry your cross"; a cross being an instrument of death. What is your instrument of death? Is it traumas you hold onto, toxic behaviors and thoughts, is it addictions, your tongue, false beliefs you hold about yourself and others, is it surface level indulgences, insecurities or maybe its avoidance of anything uncomfortable. What is your cross?Jesus said, " I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." (John 11:25)He is the living God that entered the flesh and conquered its death. So when we allow Him to enter our lives, our flesh, He too conquers our death and brings us back to life; mentally, physically, spiritually. We no longer WANT to live for ourselves but for Him. Living for ourselves is what brought us to our death after all; feeling empty, lacking value & purpose. Consumed with ourselves, living for ourselves, seeking our own avenues of revenge, happiness, desires, wants, pleasures. Yet it always leads back t the feeling of emptiness. Non of the above includes God or His will, it only involves us. When we are consumed with ourselves we cannot see the "bigger picture" we become weighted down by our cross. This is why we are to surrender it at the feet of our saviour. The saying "no one is coming to save you" is accurate because its already been done! We just have to realize it, we have to be willing to die to ourselves and be made new; brought back to life by Jesus/Yeshua and begin to live in alignment with His will and way. The one who knows all and sees all, whom created all. Are you a new creation?Are you willing to surrender the old for the new?Is your life serving you or are you serving it?LETS GET ROOTED!!Head over to my shop which is located in the link on my instagram page @TheRootedWife and grab yourself a copy of this devotional journal, you will not regret it!!

What is Biblical Repentance? How does it release us from shame and transform our lives?

What is Biblical Repentance? How does it release us from shame and transform our lives?
*some scratchy auto but bearable*Biblical Repentance- is a change of the mind, heart, and action, by turning away from sin and self and returning to God. It is not about how we feel, the things we have done or how determined we are to change, it is the act of change in motion.In this episode I talk about how I believe people have misunderstood certain meanings from scripture due to misinterpretations and misrepresentations by religions leaders and lack of personal due diligence. We see many times how leaders have used scripture outside of its context to manipulate people for reasons that are not of God. This is why having a personal relationship with scripture and the Holy Spirit are so crucial, so that we are not lead astray by people. "Repentance" has been known to make people feel a sense of shame, unworthiness, and "never going to be enough" mindsets which keeps people trapped, this is due in part because I don't think we understand truly what it is. I know many people that are not biblically rooted and they practice the act of repentance, however they may not necessarily believe in Jesus and this is a crucial flaw. Only through Jesus do we gain salvation, Because again, repentance isn't based on our merits but our ability to change the ways in which we think and act that hinder our highest good and do not align with the word of God, our creator. I know I have been blessed to have the Holy Spirit with me my whole life, however I was not practicing repentance, but that did not keep God away from me, nor did it stop Him from trying to reach me. However, I still had to enact my own free will to search and find out what His word was and meant, and then actively change so that I would see the change in my life. Religious/worldly repentance pulls us into shame, Biblical repentance pulls us into freedom and glory. *some biblical references:Jerimiah 26:32 Timothy 2:21Acts 20:21
Identity: How we curate it & how we allow it to direct our lives

Identity: How we curate it & how we allow it to direct our lives
sensitive contentThis episode we are divining into all of the layers that make up our identity, where do they come from and how do we decide which traits to keep and which to toss. How do we know if we are living a life that will bear the most fruits and that will produce the desired outcome? How do we know who we are? These are just some of the questions that we ask ourselves and if we aren't, should we be?Who's truth is the truth? Who's identity is more valuable than their neighbor? See, identity is the key to the many things we see around our world, it is the root cause of so much of our misalignment and outsourcing, so who are you?I talk about how we can peel back the layers of the identities that we have created for ourselves or believe about ourselves and how they can and do have a negative effect in our lives when they are not founded in truth, however this ultimately allows us to humbly come to the conclusion that our only true identity is found in Jesus and the Word of God, Our Creator & Father. I believe that refusing to come to this conclusion is in fact what causes our miseries here on earth. Our inability to surrender the falsehood and "identities" we have created here on earth for the one we were created to have."To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness." Ephesians 4:22-24
Marriage Matters: Finding common ground in marriage + Rooting your relationship with scripture

Marriage Matters: Finding common ground in marriage + Rooting your relationship with scripture
This episode we are talking about how there are many pieces of scripture taken out of the bible and out of context that depict a negative influence of how men should be with their wives and how wives should be with their husbands. A common piece that I have heard be taken out of context often is " wives must submit to their husbands and let him lead the household". Modern society would state that is a war on women and their independence, and that NO woman should ever submit to their husbands. However maybe the way society views the word submission is the problem and not the scripture.Both men and women have become susceptible to entering relationships with unhealthy mentalities, mindsets, beliefs, behaviors, etc. So when you find yourselves in turmoil within your relationship, how do you find common ground to begin to work through it all? Where do you start? Who is "right"? We will discuss these very things. I hoped you enjoy and take something beneficial from this, Stay blessed & Stay well!Ephesians 5: 22-33"21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”[c] 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."
