In the hands of the Potter

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation: the old is gone, the new has come.    2 Corinthians 5;17
Isn't that exciting? I think it is. If you are like me and have made mistakes in any area and looking for a do-over, well, putting your life in Jesus' hands is the best start for change. We are re-created. New. Old junk is gone and we are forgiven!
For me, it was shedding off the old, negative, awful attitudes that hurt so many people in my life. Guilt, shame, self-condemnation I held inside thinking it was over for me. I lost my confidence. I lost most everything. But I tried to hide it. I tried to put on the face of strength. That doesn't work because it comes back to you. Once I truly ...

Sometimes you may think you just can't make it. You go along doing everything right. Then after awhile, things still don't seem to be improving and you can't take it any longer. Despair sets in. 

What gets us to that point? You know God gave you a promise, why can't you keep going? The days turn into weeks. Weeks turn into months. Months turn into years. You consider the end. Is it worth it? 

In the early stages of taking this journey of change, you want to tell everyone. You hope they will understand why your life is suddenly upside down and they will be a great support for you. After all, you are listening to God and he gave you a promise. But instead, you are receiving indifference. Nobody, not even your ...

Prepare for Change



Why would you have to prepare for change? Can't you just jump into it? Well, for some that may be the case. But for others, myself included, it's a process we need to prepare our mind for. What that means is you have to prepare for what you must do and know that once you are ready you can move forward. It is trusting what you cannot see and don't understand. Chances are it won't make sense at the time because it's a faith journey, period. What you are doing is saying yes to change. Trusting where God is leading you, knowing he's doing what he must for your own good.

God meets you where you are. You don't have to be perfect. We will never be perfect so why try. You are who you are, where you are rig...

Make that Change



Remember the song, Man In the Mirror, by Michael Jackson?

I'm starting with the man in the mirror.

I'm asking him to change his ways.

And no message could have been any clearer-

If you wanna make a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change.



Perfect words for what I want to say to everyone. If you're unhappy in your life, don't blame everyone else and expect them to change before you can be happy with your life. If you want to see change, start with yourself. Look in the mirror and ask what can You do? Where can you start?

Asking yourself to change your ways can be many things. Let's look at character a minute. What are you known for? Bad attitude? Moody? Judgmental? Critical? Aloof? Or are you known...

What’s Wrong With My Life?


It’s a mess. Life as you knew it is out of control. You and your spouse aren’t getting along as you used to. The kids aren’t behaving as they used to. People at work are getting on your last nerve. People at the grocery store move like they have nowhere else to go. Your health is sluggish, your friends don’t call you anymore, your dreams of what you wanted to be have faded and nothing is as it used to be. You stopped taking care of yourself, you always look undone or haggard. How did this happen?

Life has gotten so frustrating that you stopped going to church, stopped spending time with God and now you’re just trying to make it through the day without crying. You think you might want a break, maybe a divorce, or ma...
