There are few things in life more frustrating than knowing you need to change, wanting to change, and trying to change, but not actually changing.
How do I know? Because I have tried so hard so many times to change, only to hit the same brick wall of failure time and time again. Before I started learning to master the habits I’m sharing with you, this was my life.
Maybe you’ve been there. You’ve tried to change too, but it hasn’t worked for you either. Why? We want to change; we want life to be different. We long for more.
What makes all this so much worse is that you’ve likely tried really hard. You haven’t just sat around doing nothing. But honestly, we get tired. Exhausted. Whether physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or all of the above.
Does all this mean you’re incapable of change? Does it mean you’re trapped with the same annoying problems for the rest of your life? Not at all.
You can change. I promise. More importantly, God has promised that change is possible for you. Just as I learned it was for me. But there’s a reason change doesn’t come. Scratch that. There are reasons, as in plural, with an s.
Bad news:* We don’t experience lasting change because we try to change in the wrong way.
Good news:* We can learn how to change.
Great news:* We’re going to learn how, together, in this devotional .
If you’re ready to start living the life you’ve been hoping for and dreaming about, then start believing that you can access the power of God to change.
