After I believed in Jesus, my heart was no longer filled with sadness, but with joy, and my anxiety and fear turned into peace. I no longer had to take medication to help me relax.
All the hurt in my heart ended when I heard that my old self was dead and that I was a new creation. When Jesus died on the cross, my old, hurt self had also been nailed with Him and died. And when Jesus rose from the dead, God had also raised my soul with Him and made me into a new being. My soul wasn't the old self, stained with hurt. Rather, it was a newly created being that was whiter than snow. I am no longer someone who is bound by her old wounds. Amen!
