changing

For the last couple of weeks, God has been working mightily in this heart of mine.  Thank you Jesus.  You know, it’s never easy to see things about yourself that need changing.  The best we can do is admit it and give that part of our life and our heart over to the One who is able to turn it for good.  As I think of the work in my own life  (realizations, forgiveness and healing) I can’t help but remember that God alone is in the business of changing lives.  My life, the lives of those around me, the lives of all who are willing to let him in.  This is the simple message that is laced throughout the gospel, but something that can transform even the surrendered life.  I need reminders.  Lists, Post-its, calenders…they are my friends.  Even in the spiritually realm I notice that I often forget the simplest truth– just as I forget the simplest grocery item (milk or eggs).

I am so thankful that my God is willing and able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than I can ask or think.  He’s faithful to complete the work He started in me to the end.  There’s always something to do right?  Something always needs cleaning, something always needs tending, someone always wants our attention.  Something is always in my own heart that needs fixing.  Whether it be a hurt or a loss or a sin, or a calling…there is always something changing within me.

I truly feel that at this moment I’m on the cusp of a life-change.  I think that as a Christian I have gone through many life-changers, but never something this significant.  All I can say is that the enemy has had a field day in the world.  It’s time for Jesus to do His work in all of my family.  It’s a cross-roads.  I love you and appreciate you all me dear, sweet, faithful readers.  I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror if I didn’t at least mention the truth about Jesus to you.

“But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  Joshua 24:15

All of creation testifies of the glory and might and power of our creator.

One thought on “changing

  1. I like your words about the gospel as “something that can transform even the surrendered life”. So important to remember that truth that surrendering our life to Jesus is not the finish line… it’s only the beginning.
