Change is not easy. Some of us fight back for all we are worth, while others simply sit down, and give in. It is one thing to talk about making adjustments in our lives, but following through is another story. We have to be serious, and completely committed to what needs to be done.
God can do very little with us, until we make the first move. As much as we would like to wake up some morning, and be a new person, there is no magic cure. God does not wave a wand over us and, in an instant, we are transformed. In order for us to change, we need to do what He tells us, and stick to it.
We need to remember that we are not on this journey of change by ourselves. We have God, first of all. He will be with us to strengthen, and encourage us. We also have family and friends, who love us and want the best for us. Many of them pray for us daily. They pray for our safety, our protection, and our care. We are not alone, even though we think so.
If you need to make a change in your life today, whether it involves your way of thinking, or your way of doing something, turn it over to God. That is the first step. The next step is to listen to Him. Do what He says, and focus on Him. Soon you will be a different person, because you allowed Him to renew you.
