CHANGE

Do you want to change?

Do you want to be a better friend? Do you want to be a kinder person? Do you want to stop reliving old hurts and move on to making new, better memories? Do you want to help someone close to you break free of bad behaviors? Do you want to inspire others to know Jesus personally? Do you want God to change you from the inside out?

Do you? Truly?

This type of change in your life is yours for the taking. Just ask.

Ask Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, to enter in to your heart and guide you to the changes only He can inspire. Faith allows you to believe He exists, believe He can hear your request, and believe He will help you change.

Believe this, my friend! You can whisper it into the wind, and He will hear you. You can shout it from your car window driving down the street, and He wont miss a word. You can write it on the very last page in the tiniest print in your journal, and He will see it.

Jesus wants to partner with you to change you. Not to change you for the sake of change, but that you may know a better life with Him as your Lord. And, in the process, you will fulfill His purpose for you in reaching many others. The transformation of your life into alignment with the life Jesus showed us can empower us to live free of worry and fear. And, that, my friends, is what becomes a blessing far beyond what you could ever imagine. It brings blessings into your life and blessings into the lives of others.

In 2 Corinthians 5:17, we read Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

When Christ enters in, the old you cant help but flee in the face of a new way of lifea life built on love. Love makes all the difference, and thats where youll begin to see the difference in yourself. And, truly, others will see it, too.

Are you ready to open up, be vulnerable, bear the truth of your current state and let God lead you? He wont leave you to work this out on your own. He will always be with you, seeking you, encouraging you, and guiding you. He will create a desire in your heart to seek Him, too. Listen to that still, small voice and be an active participant in this transformation.

The Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person. 1 Samuel 10:6
