Change Is A Lifelong Process (Part 2)

Adversity is just change that we haven’t adapted ourselves to yet. ~ Aimee Mullins ~

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
~ Romans 12:2 ~

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Continuing thoughts on change, pull up a chair, this one has some length. (smile) A little Sunday humor!

It’s a beautiful thing to come here and share life experiences, by sowing faith, courage and encouragement. Glory to God. (smile)

I’m a humble and open vessel to The Lord. (smile) Please know and understand, I come here to share my Christian walk because He gives me courage to do so and faith that it helps someone. I sow, He waters and brings the increase. (smile)

Change can come through so many ways-trials and tribulations, The Word of God, love, as well as, our choices.

Change can be many things depending on our attitude toward change. I am here to tell you, change is a lifelong process that begins with each of us. (shock face)

No matter, how strong we are in The Lord and the power of His might, He will continue to change us from the inside out and from glory to glory. Everyday is an opportunity to grow better than we were the day before. (smile)

Change brings testing and retesting and lots of God’s mercy and grace. (smile) Change brings adapting to anything and everything, to include X, Y and Z. Glory to God.

I’ve mention before that spiritual fruit within us is evident, as we become rooted and grounded in His Word, that our lifestyle reflects our spiritual fruit and maturity. God will prune anything within us not producing fruit. (gritted teeth smile)

Conquering our thoughts, as we grow and mature in Christ, is necessary to our continued growth.

Here’s the beauty of Romans 8:28 and the seasons of change, it will all work out. Praise The Lord. (smile)

The key is to renew the mind. Change old thought patterns, by replacing each thought, that oppress or keep the flesh man dominated over the spirit man. Patience and long-suffering are the hardest fruit to multiply without inner change.

Just when we think that we’ve got it all together, pfft, testing comes. The good news is that as we change, life and it’s testing gets easier to handle and walk right through. Praise The Lord.

Blessings, my friends, as we enjoy the change that comes our way today! Roll with it. (smile)

Change is A Lifelong Process

At some point, we all must change! Have a blessed day.

God is always in control, even when we don’t understand the why of something.

Change is a lifelong process of challenges, we must walk through to know the will of God for our lives.

God use challenges , whether it’s a person or group of people, place (work) or things (traffic, long lines) to help produce more fruit in us–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control). Fruit, as well as, our spiritual maturity takes time to grow and mature. (shock face)

Sometimes change is about adapting without complaining.
Sometimes, it is, what it is, keep moving forward.
Sometimes, we just aren’t ready for the next step.
Sometimes, we allow the “what if” to stop us.
Sometimes, our pride and/or stubbornness blocks our fruit from developing.
Sometimes, our free will to choose keeps us…

Change is A Lifelong Process

God is always in control, even when we don’t understand the why of something.

Change is a lifelong process of challenges, we must walk through to know the will of God for our lives.

God use challenges , whether it’s a person or group of people, place (work) or things (traffic, long lines) to help produce more fruit in us–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control).

Sometimes change is about adapting without complaining.
Sometimes, it is, what it is, keep moving forward.
Sometimes, we just aren’t ready for the next step.
Sometimes, we allow the “what if” to stop us.
Sometimes, our pride and/or stubbornness blocks our fruit from developing.
Sometimes, our free will to choose keeps us stuck.

Sometimes, we just lack encouragement. Remember Romans 8-28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

So change is the test to walk through challenges, by faith, trusting God without complaining.

The not complaining part, can be a retest many times before we mature in self-control.

When we surrender to the Holy Spirit, change and/or challenges become easier to walk through.

Somedays can be just brutal, as soon as we recognize a challenge, let us breathe and praise The Lord that this too shall pass and The Holy Spirit will lead us all the way through.

God bless as we keep moving forward. 😜
