“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Sometimes it takes more than once; multiple “lifetimes” to create the best version of self that can possibly be, even as we continue growing and evolving with each “resurrection”. Every experience contributes to the being we are and become, but not everything is necessary to be taken “with” us into the “new” and there come times in our lives when we must leave behind all that was for all that will and could be. We must “release” the old so that the “new” can live in victory.

As a phoenix rises from the ashes of its own flames, having grown through burning “hell”, purified by heat and pressure like a diamond, so must and do we. Everything cold and dead or that no longer serves purpose in our lives with forward progression and momentum must be removed and let go of, the fire within that burns so bright separating itself from anything that would drag it down or hold it back from burning brighter and flying higher.

Find peace with your past, but let it shatter far beneath you as you rise on fiery wings to soar above the ocean, through the heavens, in the midnight sky, as another glowing flame spreading light in the darkness. Let everything ice burn and melt away with the heat of the passion and life that flickers and roars for freedom, and hold nothing back from the heat. Let the cold, hard prison that once “captured” you break as the fire burns it from the inside out, the world seeing the soul inside rise and shine.

Everything of “old” has been transformed; weakness become strength, with passion and heart renewed. The “new” has different feeling than what was, even if there are similarities in appearance, for the inner change, the evolution of soul, the spark that lights the fire now was created from the “death” of what “made” the new, the flames clean and bold and free from the dust and smoke of yesterday.  Burn as you were always meant to, a living flame, as an example.
