A better car, a better computer, a better Kitchen, a new hairstyle. Most of the time, we are happy to change “things.” Usually, we are happy to change them because we believe in the “better” word.
Changing habits? Well that’s harder. We get stuck in a tension. We know changing a bad habit or life pattern would be better, but a big problem is that somehow that problem has become us, its inside of us, its become part of who we are.
We allow these kind of changes when we believe in better. When we believe Jesus wants not just the better, but the best for us. When we see that His ways for us are true and loving and good. And we begin to change when we say “Yes,” change me, transform me because being like Jesus is the best we will ever be.
There’s still time to get involved in catching the wave, it’s not too late to get started. If you want a book there’s still some available from Fulwood Free Methodist Church. There’s also an option to get the daily prayer thoughts delivered to your email via our friends at trypraying via this link. Enter your name and email address and you’ll be subscribed to the list once you’ve verified who you are by clicking on a link in the email they send you.
These 40 days of prayer are part of our Focus on 40 as we look forward to celebrating our 40th Anniversary as a community this next weekend. We don’t want to just be looking back on the 40 years that have already been, we want to be looking forward to the next generation and all that God has planned.
