Old to New

Old to New was written in May 2015, just a few short months after I followed Jesus and it reminds me of the worry I carried about sharing my testimony, but how I was beginning to recognise that God could use my past for his glory.


My transition from old to new, from condemnation to salvation, my heart sings out in praise, I raise my hands to the sky, sing worship to my God on high.

Transition is a difficult phase, in truth, my challenge now, to raise awareness of my choice, to use my voice, to turn my past into my witness, to be ambitious not inhibited, ready to share the message of forgiveness with family, friends and acquaintance.

So how to tackle the issue of coming out again, not a sexuality confession this time, but an expression of a changed obsession, my progression from darkness to light, to possessing love and forgiveness and a certain promise of resurrection and eternal life in Jesus.

Help me today God to follow your path, listen to your guidance in order to silence my internal fears of rejection.  May I learn to fit into my new life, feel comfortable that by your grace I am saved and may my spiritual journey be paved with new Christian friends to raise me up along the way.

Lord help me witness to those I know from my past.  Give me an inner strength, fill me with your Holy Spirit, make me fearless, untouched by any careless comments and unafraid of silence.

May I recognise this is where you have called me to serve.  Help me not swerve or duck out of your calling, no more stalling or falling down for fear of earthly rejection.  Give me opportunities for connection, give me direction that you may gain ground and use me to help others to gain redemption.
