23 years ago today, I was a depressed suicidal 15 year old when in my desperation the Lord spoke to my heart, while I sat alone on my bed. Being raised in church wasn't going to "save me" and I knew it. I needed Jesus to come and change me. 23 years later He is still changing me. And I'm oh so grateful for that! I can remember walking out of my bedroom door feeling alive for the first time.
I wanted to do a page to celebrate my "Born Again Birthday." I used pencils (I'll stick with my acrylic paints) and I'm not pleased with how it turn out, but ya know what? That's OK! The Lord isn't always pleased with me either and being a new creation in Christ brings growth...even 23 years later. That's why I always say I'm an ever evolving Christian. I never want to remain the same.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." 2 Corinthians 5:17
