{Changes, Changes. What Are You Willing To Change?} -Part 1

I am so excited you decided to stop by {In Pursuit} today. Why?

Well because it’s October 1st, of course!

I love new months, new weeks, new days even- they give you the opportunity of new beginnings and fresh starts. I don’t know about you, but for someone like me who constantly gets it wrong, new beginnings have been such an encouragement.

Dear tired friend, can I share something with you? God is not in heaven looking down at you with pointed fingers like,

“You don’t measure up. You can’t get anything right! You can’t finish anything you started! You get it all wrong! You mess up everything you put your hands into!”

He’s not putting the guilt trip on you. Instead, He is there, available. Cheering you on. Encouraging you. Strengthening you.

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Phil. 2:13

See, God is working in you to will and to do for His good pleasure. New beginnings are available to you today.

So how does it work?

First, Get Real Baby ‘Gurl!

You can’t fix something you don’t acknowledge. If you don’t like what you see, whatever IT is, then let’s acknowledge it.

Oh, okay Darlene. Whatever! Now you’ve lost me. You don’t know what I’m going through…

You’re right. I don’t know what you’re going through. But I do know what I’ve gone through. I know the messed up situations I’ve found myself in. I know the stress and guilt that comes from trying to be superwoman to everyone. And I know that the power of God was and is still able to transform any area of my life.

How do I know that?

Because I know what it’s like to be a mess.

Yes. I know what it’s like to be a first class sinner. If it wasn’t for God’s grace and mercy, I would not be here today. I probably would have lost my children, my husband, my home, my ministry, everything.

So for today… let’s get real.

What needs to change? And what are you willing to change?

Then if you dare live the life God has intended for you to live, meet me here tomorrow when we talk some more about CHANGES.
