New Creature: Life Defining Posts

Hi, I’m Aimee!

First, I bet you thought this was a food blog, huh?  ‘There are cake pictures and it’s named “Tasty Bite”…?’  Well, it started out that way, but God has a way of noting our plans and having better ones.

Five years ago (as of 2019) I had nowhere to turn and had lost all hope, but Jesus looked at me and said, “You are mine.  I want you.  Be with me.”

This blog became a journal of my walk with Jesus Who is the Bread of Life.

It’s been the best decision I’ve ever made and has been the greatest adventure I could ever go on.  Jesus radically changed my life.  He rescued me and I’ll never be the same.  This page reflects some of the God experiences I have had and is a documented journey of my walk with Him.

(Links to blog posts are attached.)

It’s during the toughest times that you learn who you really are and where your heart really lies.  It’s through the fire you are made stronger.

You learn that Life is nothing like blueberry cake.

“NOW NO CHASTENING FOR THE PRESENT SEEMETH TO BE JOYOUS, BUT GRIEVOUS: NEVERTHELESS AFTERWARD IT YIELDETH THE PEACEABLE FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO THEM WHICH ARE EXERCISED THEREBY.”
– HEBREWS 12:11

You have two choices: Stay the same and be miserable (or comfortable which is worse) or embrace the new and grow from the challenges.

As a Christian we are to surrender to God’s will for us and watch the old man fade away.  You are learning your new identity in Christ and can no longer be the same person you have been for so long.  It can be confusing because it means losing friendships, habits,  and everything you ever knew.

If you are struggling and are afraid to face tomorrow, please know that having
hope is a choice and you are not alone.

At the same time that you’re losing yourself surrender is so sweet.  You just have to make it to the other side where Jesus is with His arms wide open.  We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength for His strength is made perfect in our weakness.  When we are weak He is strong.

These are some of my most life defining posts:

That time I took a solo trip to Ireland and found my best friend…

 

That time I was in a spiritual desert season and God taught me to depend on Him by driving through a desert alone to ride a mule in the Grand Canyon.

It was during that time God seemed quiet when my faith was tested and I learned to wait:
Waiting on God and Not everyone can go

And then He taught me why in this post:
God is in the waiting…

When I was a New Creature: He showed me what transformation looks like through an answered prayer in a butterfly garden: I have a Butterfly garden: Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over…

That time I became Thankful in all things… and learned that Covetousness and Contentment cannot abide.

You have to let go of the old man and become transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Let go of the way of the world and don’t rely on their traditions.  New Year, New you?  Let God revolutionize you instead.

Matthew 10: When only God can restore your relationship with your dad.

You will never regret choosing Jesus.  It may be hard at times because you’re battling your flesh, but in context is just a moment.  Surrender is sweet.  He is everything and the only thing that satisfies.

Love means always saying you’re sorry…

 

When I finally surrendered God showed me He would be with me Walking into new seasons like…- A journal entry.

That time I had to give up what I wanted most and I have (almost) found the One my soul loves…

What if being single wasn’t a disease? because #thisis30.

Sometimes He lets you relive your past to walk you through your present with Him.  He is restoring me. “You are making new wine…”

When Love looks a lot like hate. Christians are the worst offenders… Part 1

You have to want Him more than…

You can read something a million times, but then the next time is When God shows you how to wait for your Boaz…

A strong root is formed in darkness…

“MY BRETHREN, COUNT IT ALL JOY WHEN YE FALL INTO DIVERS TEMPTATIONS; KNOWING THIS, THAT THE TRYING OF YOUR FAITH WORKETH PATIENCE.

BUT LET PATIENCE HAVE HER PERFECT WORK, THAT YE MAY BE PERFECT AND ENTIRE, WANTING NOTHING.

IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY, AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM.” – JAMES 1:2-5
