As I was walking out of my final exam this evening towards my friends, one of them shouts, "Indy, you've got a tattoo?" Immediately all of the girls stopped what they were doing at the moment and all eyes were on me. It was almost as if they were in shock that I had a tattoo. I told them that I did and showed it to them. I briefly explained that I did that in the past during a rebellious stage in my life (which I will share with you in the future).
The one thing that amazes me, though, is that when my friends see me, they don't see the old Indy, They now see the beautiful women God has transformed. And like that butterfly tattoo, it is symbolic of the metamorphosis that took place in my life when I came to Christ.
Lord, I thank you for your faithfulness. I am grateful that you continually pursued me even when I thought I did not need you and did not want anything to do with you. Thank you for the forgiveness and abundant life I have found in you alone.
In Jesus' Name,
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17
