sometimes we must change

Change is not always an easy word to look at.  Change can be physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, or financial. Most of us do not like change because it will require an action…some genuine footwork.  These actions usually have a cost associated with them that we do not want to pay.  Most change will require some tough decisions or hard work.  This is why most people or organizations just stay right where they are.  They are crippled with pride or fear.  It seems like an unmovable mountain to change.  I took a different avenue to change than most people.  As I gave my heart to Jesus in the physciatric ward, on 24 hour suicide watch, as a $500 or so a week crystal meth junkie…I had to change or I was going to die…period.  My mentor at that time told me that the only thing I had to change about myself was everything.  This meant I was going to be making tough decisions and choices.  Today I absolutely love to seek change.  I love to grow and find ways to become better.  I am not happy with just being good.  We never get to a place where we should stop looking at what or how we are doing and what or how we can change to improve and grow. Good is the enemy of great.  Next time you are looking at change…step back for a minute, seek God, pray, have a heart check, look to the positive, seek wise counsel. What do you need to change?
