A SIMPLE CHANGE!

A SIMPLE CHANGE?

He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.  Harold Wilson

A simple change in our thought process can lead to a change in life, but first, we have to stop seeing ourselves as victims.  Life is going to happen until we stop breathing.

Curiosity ought to have us asking questions like; How can we know what we are capable of if we never embrace the unknown?

I suggest we hone in where we may be able to make a difference, even if it does require change; it’s simple and it’s necessary because Change is the end result of all true learning..but most times all it takes is, One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher to change the world.  Malala Yousafzai

It’s amazing to me how easy things can change because of that One gesture by one person, in a moment of time. 

With knowledge and understanding of that knowledge, we begin to realize The creative process is a process of surrender, not control, (Julia Cameron) so it all really depends on how we respond to life events.  An action is needed and it’s your choice.  But without a doubt doing nothing will be your downfall.  The world waits for no one stuck in a rut or wasting time.

Some like waddling in the muck while waiting for someone else to make a difference.  Barack Obama said it, and we should have known it long before he brought it to our attention:  A change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the one we’ve been waiting for. We are the change we seek.  

Having to change can be painful; the thing is almost everything else is painful too; growth, disappointment, ingrown toenails, ect., but not as painful as staying stuck in any situation we do not belong, using excuses for why we stay such as, time changes things, but in truth, you actually have to change them for yourself.    

I am warning you, there is no hope of any change if you can’t change your mind, and if that’s the case it’s worse, you won’t be able to change anything, especially your progress.  For all its worth, selfishness and a mean-spirit will keep us in a rut and things will never get any better.

Think about it, having an un-willing heart could have a direct relationship with an unwillingness to forgive others and blaming all for your shortcomings.  I’ll never forgive them, is not what God is about or you, and it’s just plain stupid if you are continually hurting yourself rather than change your heart.

Forgiving others and making changes to our life and lifestyle are the type of actions that bodes well for our future.  But, if we choose to adopt negative perspectives we will fail.  It’s best we master our own mind first and then adopt positive actions in order to move forward; Just be aware of the fact that the mind is the foundation of all our action, whatever we say or do comes from it.

But, did you know with Jesus Christ in our lives, we can override the mind and use the Heart, where the Spirit Lives?

When we let Jesus into our hearts, Psalms 37:4 KJV tells us the LORD will give us the desires of our heart, and when we have the desire to change for the better it is written in Ezekiel 36:26 KJV; A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit I will put into you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. 

Because of those types of teaching and what I have endured makes me a  Living Witness to the Goodness and the Mercy of God, and that has forever changed me.

The day is what you make it, being miserable is a habit.

I know we can’t change some situations but we can change our attitude to fix certain trouble spots because each problem has hidden opportunities, and turning towards optimism usually allows for our best to evolve.  And I know, positive thinking doesn’t always work, but, negative thinking unfortunately almost always don’t.  (Gary Mack)

Just like nothing can come from an apple tree but apples, good thoughts coupled with a good heart almost never produce bad fruit., and it is a well-known fact that a man often becomes what he believes, so be careful of those who would put pressure on you to do an injustice.  I am telling you if you consider or intend to do that unjustifiable evil thing, it was already in your heart; your weakness and inability to change brought it out of you.

Therefore you may need to call on the Name of the Lord. 

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory and it is in Jesus name that we pray.
