You Can Change

It’s a goal-making kind of day.

This year I will clean regularly.  I will read the Bible every day.  I will exercise myself back into those jeans (which spent all of December 26 unsnapped).  I will…

But it’s not the resolve that stands with chin up today.

It’s the I can.

Any mom wills to start a diet on New Year’s Day.  But it’s the woman who knows Christ who can begin change on January 1 and keep changing on February 19 and still be changing on April 6 and May 24 and July 2 and October 12.

“…If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!(2 Corinthians 5:17  NIV)

The new has come.



-and keeps coming.


-and keeps coming.


-and keeps coming.


The Changer lives inside us.

And so we resolve to give God freedom to work in us.  To say okay when He asks us to do something.  To believe He is able to make us beautiful and good in places where we weren’t beautiful and good last year.

We can change.

Happy New Year!
