I looked up the definition of change and I liked this one:
2. to transform or convert
These posts aren't for y'all but to remind me of where I've come from so I won't go back there again. Might not share all the intimate details of my wrong doings or my trials but I was deep off in sin. Doing things and participiting n things I knew were not of God, and doing these things NOT so long ago.
I'm so thankful for where I am in God today. I learned (just on yesterday) that growth in God is a process. It won't happen overnight, so I'm going to enjoy this process. This very internal change that God is doing in my life.
Not just MY life, but in Tony, Jaelyn, Kayla and Aj. It's amazing what can happen when your entire family has the same goal. To live a life for God.
I tried for so long to stop the crap I was doing. I went from one horrible thing to another and it just kept getting worse.
What I learned is that change happens from the inside out and no matter how much someone ELSE wants you to change and do right, you HAVE to want it for yourself. There is no other way around it.
If you change for someone else and not yourself, you will be back to your old ways in no time.
That's why it's so important to do it for YOU. You have to do it because YOU desire to do better, because YOU want to do things differently. If you don't do it for you and you alone, you will fail. No way around it.
That's all I have to say lol. Just wanted to get that out.
I'm not perfect, just striving to be the woman God wants me to be. Keeping my life lined up with the WORD!
