It’s a whole word.

It’s a life time of journey.

REcover.

REdeemed.

REjoice.

REcreate.

REdo.

RE- over and over and over again.  It’s a process.  It’s not one time, it’s never finished, it’s RE.

His mercies are new every morning.  We get RE-mercy every time the sun comes up.

This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us Rejoice and be Glad in it!

 REjoy.  REglad.  REnew.

The old has gone, the new has come.  That happens every day – often over and over and over again.  Salvation is a one time event,

but my being made new in Christ – is a REprocessing and a REtransforming.

RE.

I am recovering from perfectionism, from the need to have certain relationships be what I want them to be, from overeating, from caring too much what you think, yes, you – even the you I’ll never meet.

I am REcovering because He is constantly uncovering.

I am living in the covering of Jesus on my life so that I can accept –

the things I cannot change and enjoy the wisdom to know the difference.

RE.

Back then…

My twin sister picked up alcohol at 14.  That’s when I picked up the drug of perfection.

My twin sister needed boys’ attention in high school.  I liked the attention of my parents and teachers.

She enjoyed flirting and I treasured succeeding.  She left school early.  I stayed late.

Today…

My twin sister has overcome her addiction to drugs and sex.

My twin sister has become a leader in teaching others to get free from their pain and their past.

Today…

I have overcome my need to please, my need to be liked, my need to be perfect.

I have been called to demonstrate this same grace to others.

And today…

we both battle daily the old patterns – the war has been won in Christ, but we get to fight daily to be RE…

done

made

covered

deemed

RE.

It’s enough.  It’s not my enough.  It’s His.

It’s the process that He controls and it’s the one I get to surrender to.

Tonight I made my 2015 dream board, led by my creativity coach Carlyn.  RE was the theme.  Words that I found…

Respond to the call.

Recount hope.

Reboot.

Reach.

This living in Christ is no one time deal.  It’s daily.  Second by second.  He’s never done making all things new.  He will make beauty from our ashes as we RE…over and over and over again.

What RE is God doing in you today?  What patterns did you used to live in and you are seeing maturity increase in your life?  COMMENTS are Responded to.
