Let God transform you. (Romans 12:2 GNT)
Change only happens when you:
1) Decide to change! A newspaper asked people to answer the question: ‘What’s wrong with the world’ and someone wrote back “I am”!! Good answer! It’s true. If God kicked every person in the butt who was responsible for messing up the world nobody would be able to sit down for a week!!
2) Change the way you think! The Bible says “let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think” (Romans 12:2 NLT) The way you think affects the way you feel and the way you feel affects the way you act. When you’re thinking God thoughts you’ll act the way he wants you to. Here’s a tip – get into the bible…that’s the best way to change your thinking!
3) Take a small step everyday! We think change is gonna happen overnight… it won’t! It happens slowly. For change to work start with small things but do them everyday. And don’t get discouraged when you mess up. We all stumble about like Bambi when we’re trying to change. Read this, “there has never been a doubt in my mind that God who started this great work in you (change) would keep at it and bring to a flourishing (fancy word) finish on the very day Jesus appears” (Philippians 1:6 The Message). And don’t forget, God is there to help you.
