You Don’t Have to be Who You Were Yesterday

Maybe you royally messed up. 

Maybe something came over you and you acted completely out of character. 

Maybe you just don't like who you've become lately.

Friend? You don't have to be that person one more day. You don't have to keep doing the things you are doing that you know aren't helping. You don't have to keep numbing yourself just to get through. You don't have to be who you were yesterday. You can make a choice, today, to start the change for tomorrow. And you know what? It just starts with awareness. Awareness where you might have gone wrong or astray. Awareness and an actual want or desire to change. To be better. To be more of who God created you to be. Because that is all God needs. He just needs your hand, stretched out in His, trusting Him with the rest. He just needs you to know in your heart, that He knows what is best. And truly believe that. Sometimes it takes all we have just to grab His hand. Sometimes we are so done, that we honestly just want to collapse into Him. Wherever you, take the first step. He's not an all or nothing God. We didn't get to where we are at in one day, and sometimes, it takes days, months, or years, to be free. So whatever it is in your life, whatever you want to change, bring it to God. 

Maybe it starts with cutting back. 

Maybe, it's making the phone call. 

Maybe it's surrendering. 

Maybe it's just wanting more. 

Whatever it is, bring it to Him. And with all your heart, know you can trust Him.

"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
