Life Journal | Be Changed

But let me tell you something wonderful, a mystery I’ll probably never fully understand. We’re not all going to die— but we are all going to be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51 MSG)

It seems like every time I turn around in life something is changing. One day I have a one year old baby boy and been married for four years. I turn around and I have four kids from ten to two years old! Married to the same woman for thirteen years. Looking at my marriage and thanking God I am not the same man I was when we first were married. I still have a lot of changing to do.

Maybe that is what it is all about. The day I stop being changed by leading of the Holy Spirit and the love of a Heavenly Father is the day I die. The good news is that every time we discover something that needs to be changed it is no longer a failure are weakness but a chance to be alive.

It truly is a wonderful mystery that though we deserve the worse because of or failures Christ changes us. Changes our lives. Changes our minds. Changes our hearts. Changes our future from going to die to going to BE CHANGED.

I pray that the process of changing me is done on the Holy Spirits timing. May I stop trying to change what I think needs changing and start trusting Jesus to lead me through change. Change my mind to be set on the will of God. Change my heart to love as if my life depends on it. Bless my wife today as she prepares to lead the THAT GIRL event tomorrow. Bless my kids today and lead me to lead them. Bless HOPE today as we have chances to tell our RElive stories.
