A New Creation

gpak51487892346

Being a new creation in Christ means that the old sinful person you once were has gone as a result of the finished work of Christ.

We begin a lifelong journey of being renewed and sanctified by the work of the Holy Spirit.  God’s purpose is that His people become like the Lord Jesus Christ; therefore the Holy Spirit works in the changed heart and mind of the believer helping them to become conformed to the image of Jesus—to become like Jesus in thought, word, and deed.  A new creation indeed!!!

The new creation is a wondrous thing, formed in the mind of God and created by His power and for His glory.

My name is Cheryl Downum, I experienced a painful and unwanted divorce in 2015 (that turned out to be the best thing that could have happened) and moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless!
