changing…

Have you ever said to yourself, “Oh, if God will just change or fix this situation, then my life would be sooo much better!”  I know I have.

But I believe that God wants us to think a bit differently.  Did you ever stop to think that maybe….just maybe…God wants to change us!

The Holy Spirit has more than enough power to transform our life from the inside out, but working that change within us can be a very slow process.  Just as the delicious fruit on the tree, our spiritual fruit takes time to grow and mature.  That is why we need patience and the faith to believe that He is working, even when we don’t see the results right away.  Our sweet Lord is never in a hurry and will never, ever give up on us.

God doesn’t just have a purpose for your life, but a unique, individualized plan for all of us!  He wants to conform every believer to the image of His Son, Jesus.  And although it may make no sense to you right now, trust Him…..He knows exactly what He is doing.
