In my Christian life, I have learned that God often asks me to change. Many times, it is change that I don't want. I am happy (or at least, I think I am) with the status quo. But, because He is long-suffering and merciful He doesn't take no for an answer. So eventually, because I want to please Him and because I know He is always right and because He has "given us everything we need for living a godly life" 2 Pet. 1:3, I trust that He will enable me to obey. He has asked me to change several things this year:
-the way I pray for some people
-the things I say "yes" to
-how I spend my time
And He was right! I am seeing and enjoying the benefits and blessings of these changes. I am grateful that He is a loving Father who always wants what is best for us. Sometimes that requires change!
