It’s Time to Change Your Ways!

I’ve come to change everything, turn everything right-side up.  “It’s time to change your ways! Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins, pour out showers of blessing to refresh you.  Here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life–your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life–and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Luke 12:50 ~ Acts 3:19 ~ Romans 12:1-2 

A Life-Long Process

STEP SIX After discovering my sinful habits and attitudes and confessing them,
I am now willing to let God change me.


Proverbs 13:18 Those who turn away from their training become poor and ashamed. But those who accept warnings are honored

I heard a saying in a recovery meeting years ago that has stuck with me. It is: “If recovery doesn’t stop your using it will surely mess it up .”

You cannot get to step six of a twelve-step recovery program and go back to how you used to be.

Today at the half I want to encourage you to – KEEP MOVING FORWARD. You only fail if you stop trying.

Take time to review:

  1. What were you used to be like?
  2. What happened to you in the last six months?
  3. How have you changed?


Prayer: Thank You God for the last six months and the changes You have made. Help me to keep going.
