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?

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...

This is the year! 2018, the year I have been waiting for, the year I have working toward. I have a lot I want to share about the process of changing. It’s much more than we think. And it’s different for everyone. Some go through and need more, but all have areas that could be better especially if you find yourself in the wilderness stage. It’s a lonely time and although it may feel like nothing is happening, believe me, A Lot is going on that you cannot see.
But what do you do in that stage? Give up? Many people do. If you are alone, divorced, empty nester- you most likely feel what’s the point. Why bother. Nobody is around to share your life with so what’s the point? You have given up and have no real social life. Maybe you go to work and ...
