You know, I have been guilty of saying the prayer, “Change me, Lord!” and then when God started making changes in and around me I have been guilty of stomping my feet and crying, “I didn’t mean change THAT!!!” None of us seem to like change, but we want there to be change – only we want the change without changes.

The word “change” has about thirty varied definitions. Those that struck me as I read them are – the passing from one place, state, form, or phase to another; to become transformed or converted; to remove and replace the covering or coverings.

Help me Lord to accept the changes that You have allowed and appointed for me and Your will for me. Help me to even celebrate Your answers to my “Change me, Lord” whether the answer is my heart’s desire or a change that creates great pressure temporarily. I ask it all in Jesus Name. Amen!!! Amen!!!

Change is coming! Change is here!

Selah (pause and calmly think on that)

It’s not about me

While I was reading the latest blogpost by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda he quoted something that just struck me and I really liked it and I wanted to share with you guys:

Francis Schaeffer said, “Each generation of the church in each setting has the responsibility of communicating the gospel in understandable terms, considering the language and thought-forms of that setting.”

Reminded me of the fight we sometimes give our church leadership because we resist change and want things our way (control) and the way that is in our particular comfort zone instead of looking at those that are coming in and in need of salvation and saying preach the gospel any way the Lord leads, use any type of music that will stir their souls, use any format that will help bring them to Christ because truly “it is not about me.”
