My family and friends that know me well know just how much I’ve changed since I started walking with the Lord. My entire life has changed including my character, my thoughts, my actions, my words, the way I give and the way I love among other things. God truly has made me a new creation; I have been changed mind, body and spirit. Praise God!! When we put our faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, seek Him and obediently follow Him He does a miraculous thing in our lives…He changes us. Think about your own life – how have you changed since you started walking with the Lord? Let’s do something…take out some paper and a pen and make a list of all the things that have changed in your life since your relationship first started with the Lord. It’s easy to overlook how far we’ve come and start to feel like God is working in everybody’s life but ours. Write it down, I bet you’ll realize after making your list that He’s doing more in your life than your first realized.
My testimony (check out the about me page for the background) is a real life example of the way He can and does change us when we invite Him to do so. The change in your life is the outward evidence of the change that has transpired in your heart. There is nothing we can do to change ourselves…we are nothing apart from God. Surrender your life at the feet of the Savior and He will change you too.
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away, behold, new things have come.”
