When we come to Christ we think life is going to get easier and our problems will go away.
We soon realize that couldnt be further from the truth. After the initial excitement wears off, we go down into a place of crushing. God wants to complety destroy the life we have created for ourselves so that He can rebuild us into the person He created us to be to do what He created us for.
After being down and remaining faithful, living out the Gal 2:20 life, He brings us up to put us on display for the world to see as we walk out our assignment, living this life full of purpose and power!
