Have you ever set a goal that was really important to you, and somehow, someway you lost track of it? Maybe you stuck with it for a week or a month, but ultimately it drifted into thin air only to become a wishful thought?
Of course. We all have.
But did you take the time to reflect back on why that may have happened?
Maybe the answer is as simple as the goal truly was not important to you.
Maybe you lacked commitment.
Maybe you didn’t believe in yourself.
Maybe the noise of the world did what it does best and distracted you.
But, what if the answer is that you went about it all wrong? From day one, your plan, focus and actions failed you from the start?
Can I share something very cool with you today?
NO hacks. No gimmicks. No shortcuts.
When the time comes that you find yourself wanting to make permanent, lasting change; I mean transformational – physical, mental, emotional, relationships, profession, you name it…
START with GRACE!
Three very important reasons why:
1. Change is an “inside” job.
It’s Truly a matter of your heart. For if your heart is not in it, the positive behaviors will not last. If you simply change your behavior, but not your heart, the behavior comes back.
2. The outside world will say, “Try harder,” but GRACE says, “Trust More.”
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.”
— Matthew 23:25-26
When you Trust that God always loves you, and his Grace Sustains you…you can be Honest.
You don’t have to show one thing on the outside that is different from the inside.
You are only as strong as you are honest. None of us can correct what we will not confront.
3. Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God.
The GRACE that Saves you, Frees you, Strengthens you, is also the Grace that Sustains and Transforms You!!
By his Grace you are made New; different, better and stronger.
And the really good news is - it’s available to ALL, and his Grace Is Always Enough!!!
By his grace,
