Hi! How’s your afternoon been? My morning was quiet, with the usual for morning activity. The dog, Holly, has been a bit barky today. I’ve gotten a lot of calls made – calls I’ve needed to make all week. The dishes got done, and I’m hoping to paint a door or something before the afternoon is out and Gary gets home. Tonight is an impromptu movie night with a friend.
I’ve been thinking more about yesterday’s conversation on “change”. Making changes in life isn’t easy; that’s why most New Year’s resolutions never follow through past a couple of weeks. And some changes are downright impossible in our own strength.
Yet, the Bible says that change is not only possible, but necessary and doable. I’ve seen drastic changes in me in so many areas the last few years – changes that were needed, but I was powerless to perform alone. Changes now made, causing me greater freedom and relief. How?
Jesus, plain and simple. Through the same power that raised him from the dead. Offered because of his extravagant love for us.
If you aren’t one who puts much credence in Jesus or the Bible, but you are someone who longs for change – I encourage you to join me for the next couple of weeks. I won’t preach. I just know that Jesus has changed me and continues to do so. I have experienced first hand his amazing love, and his power to do more than we could ever ask or imagine.
We’re gonna look at Jesus’ perspective on change, the tools he’s promised to effectively make change, and stories of change. Please join me! I don’t want to do this without you!
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.” I Corinthians 2:9
Looking forward to meeting with you for coffee next week!
