I was quite impacted by this today and thought I would share here. Please let me know if you would like the scriptures that were attached herein.
"You Have To Choose to Change"
CHANGE requires making CHOICES. It’s not enough to DREAM of changing. It’s not enough to DESIRE change. In order for you to change, you will need to make a decision. You must CHOOSE to change.
Change is INTENTIONAL. Are you going to be any different in six months? Are you going to be better a year from now? Are you going to be healthier, stronger, and more mature? Are you going to be happier? Are you going to be less in debt? Are you going to be more like God wants you to be?
I can tell you the answer right now: It will only happen if you choose to change because it isn’t going to happen accidentally.
“It requires a choice”.
We have to make INTENTIONAL CHOICES in order to grow. There is no growth without change, there is no change without loss, and there is no loss without pain. If you are going to grow, you will have to change, and change means you LET GO of some OLD THINGS in order to GRAB HOLD of some NEW THINGS.
It’s like swinging on a trapeze. The trapeze artist swings out on one bar, and then he has to reach out and grab the other one. At some point, he’s got to let go of one to grab on to the other, or he’s not going to make it to the other side. If he thinks he can hold on to both, what happens? He gets stuck in the middle, and he’s going down.
Some of you are stuck in the middle, and you’re going down because you haven’t let go of the old patterns, the old habits, and the old ways of thinking. You have to let go of your old ways.
Have a blessed day.
