Since I have been delivered from the authority of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of God through Christ, I now look at my role at work and in life through the lens of God’s Word. As a result, I choose to take to the high road when faced with challenges and obstacles. Rather than needing to win arguments or get my way and lose relationship along the way…I will in humility put others before me, thus preserving relationships. When my old ways pop up, I will quickly identify it and put it back in its place, for I am now a new creation, created for good works. In Christ, I know how to defeat negativity and will at every turn ensure it does not become a part of my world. And I will continually remind myself that through Christ, I am a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come.
This is what I believe and confidently declare!
