Morning Inspiration…wanted to share a post I came across from uglybeyoutifulme on Facebook. After reading this post I knew I had to share and I knew that it was time to start working on Me…My own Man in the Mirror!!!
Change Challenge: Lately I have been re-evaulating some things in my life and I have a desire to do things differently. One of the biggest things was to develop a more closer intimate relationship with the Christ. I wanted to know him more intimately. So one of my really good friends Malina Bolds) had a really good discussion about this very topic. One of the key things she mentioned was I diligently need to place God at the forefront of every decision, concern, worry, blessing, misunderstanding etc ( which I thought was doing) however, I did not completely trusting God with the outcome. So for the past month I put myself on a surrender challenge to completely surrender all things to him (it’s been hard ya’ll and I have fallen)- still a work in progress. However I truly have a desire to change for the better to be an example for Christ operating in love, being forgiving, and just allow God lead and NOT ME! (talk about difficult!!) this is call submission (not an easy tasks). So my pray was to God show me all the things I need to work on in order for me to change (so that’s when Micheal Jackson song ” Man in the Mirror” took effect. God has been revealing things I need to change within me. As 2 Corinthians 5:17; if anyone is he Christ he is a new creature; old things past way and all things become new. Change is truly hard; it is even uncomfortable like really awkward; cause when you are so “use” to doing something to have to change talk about awkward. But I have a desire to really be a new creature. Since thing I have seen the manifestation of these changes, which how I talk, my actions, my behavior, how I treat other people, my love for myself and others, peace and my conviction to get it right and not allow old things to linger. It’s crazy how God truly does change you. I really understand (2 corinthians 5:17) even more. However, there are still some things I need to tackle. So I came up with a change challenge for myself. God has already provided me with the mirror of things I need to change, so I will be working on them until they are completely past away. Would you like to join me. I will be having what are called mirror moments on my uglybeyoutifulme page to discussion some of the things I still need to work on . I would love it if you would join me. Let’s all change together.
