you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,
Colossians 3:9-10

"Look to Abraham your father, And to Sarah who bore you; For I called him alone, And blessed him and increased him."
Isaiah 51:2

I am a new man in Christ
I am a son of the Patriarch Abraham

God is Giving Me


Gr. enthusiasmos, from enthusiadzo, to infuse with a divine spirit, from enthous, entheos, inspired, divine; en and theos, God.
2. Heat of imagination; violent passion or excitement of the mind, in pursuit of some object, inspiring extravagant hope and confidence of success. Hence the same heat of imagination, chastised by reason or experience, becomes a noble passion, an elevated fancy, a warm imagination, an ardent zeal, that forms sublime ideas, and prompts to the ardent pursuit of laudable objects. Such is the enthusiasm of the poet, the orator, the painter and the sculptor. Such is the enthusiasm of the patriot, the hero and the Christian.

Webster's 1st ed., 1828

The Spirit of God indwells me, and transforms me from a lukewarm bump on a log, to a fiery Christian and hero to those God has entrusted to me to inspire.

I am known as an enthusiastic person, because I continually express with my spirit the joy of my soul.

Praising God and the good of others lifts the spirits of those around me, and restores the marred Image of God.

Rejoice always,
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:16

Do not quench the Spirit.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:19

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
-- Ephesians 1:11-12

I will meditate in Thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy Word.
-- Psalm 119:15
