“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” [2 Corinthians 5:17]
GREAT DAY AMPPED FAMILY! I pray this finds you well.
For years we start off with New Year’s resolutions.. Like we’re going to lose weight, we’re going to eat healthier, we’re going to knock some things off of our bucket list, we’re gonna get that degree that we’ve always wanted to land a better career, we’re gonna start a brand new business.
Many of us will not reach that resolution and give up on it by March/April.. Some of us we’ll actually accomplish the goal that we’ve set but then we will revert back to what we were doing prior to setting that goal. The goal became our everything and not the reason why we were doing it. We just knew that we had to stop failing at something and complete something for a change. So we pushed and did every extreme thing that we could to make sure that we got to the goal this time.
Often we as people go through extremes to accomplish goals. We are now OK with going back to what we know is comfortable. I’ll be honest, comfortable when we’ve been doing it for years and years and years and years and years is so easy to go back to even if your mind is scheduled according to that routine.
The real thing is however as you were planning on keeping off the weight not just losing it right? You were planning on getting a new career and heading in a new direction with what you learned are the degree attained, right? You were planning on starting a new business right? For all, a level of commitment is needed that so many of us either are not ready for or not willing to have. This commitment is so disruptive that A HEART CHANGE. A MINDSET CHANGE. A WHOLE LIFESTYLE CHANGE is REQUIRED.
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a an, I put away childish things.” [1 Corinthians 13:11]
Choosing to follow Jesus Christ requires the same level of commitment; the added plus is He is walking with you to encourage you and keep you on track. There should be evidence of your change. This change first starts on the inside with salvation and acceptance that Jesus is who He has said that He is through His Word! And SANCTIFICATION being set apart. Things you used to do you may not do anymore. Many desires that you had changed and start to line up with what God wants for you…..”old things pass away” There becomes a sense of loyalty like no other… “all things become NEW”
Are you ready for a lifestyle change you’ll never regret?
Alright. Know that I Love You. God Loves You even MORE. And Until Next Time…Be InSpired Be Edified and Be Encouraged. Put God 1st in all you do. Love Unconditionally. Do what you LOVE. And always live an AMPPED LIFE!
