Change

Change is something every human will experience if God had blessed them enough to live that long. Somethings change for the good and others for the bad, but through it all its all in Gods plan. As I watch President Barrack Obama, I was brought to tears and after I heard one of his speeches. I then said to my son," That's a bad man and you can be anything you want to be , only if you put your mind to it. History rewrites itself everyday, in many ways, a black President, a black man singing the national anthem and people from all races coming together to revel in this moment. Thoughts are racing through my mind everyday , because I know that so many sacrifices , mistakes or failures have been made to make this moment happen. I know it was all in Gods plan to make this possible and that is why I always believed that when God open doors we should walk in them. Because if we trusted God more then we all would realize that only he has the power to make a way out of nothing. Also if God has his hands in it, then everything the believer touches will be blessed. Just knowing this very important fact, we should all go after dreams , take advantage of every opportunity', take chances and live our lives to the fullest.

Many times in our lives God has blessed each of us with different opportunities', but we let fear, distance or change keep us getting what we truly deserve. Doubt is the devils oldest and his most useful trick. I have heard people say this many times, "If it is meant for me, then its for me, but if its gone then I guess it wasn't meant to be". Well that is not how God operates, because if he opens a door for you or gives you an opportunity, then the time is now, not later.

My biggest change I made in my life was giving myself to Christ and its hasn't been easy. The devil has tested me many times over and still is testing me now today. But over time I noticed a change in my life, I am happier now , more fulfilled and now I am at peace. Through God I have  grown stronger, became more patient, I appreciate everything in life especially the smallest things , because I now realize our life is so short or precious. I have also realized that everyone should go after their dreams or desires. Also that God does not believe in doubt or fear. Because it is written that if man or woman has faith in God as small as a mustard seed, that we could do all things. The only limitations we have are the ones we put on ourselves.

 My best advice to give all who read this is to; Walk by faith and not by sight. Allow God to change your life for the better, then in the process doors will begin to open and you will be able to follow or achieve your dreams. But first you have to acknowledge this very important fact, besides God you are number one.( Never forget that) My mother always told me while I was growing up always take care of myself first, before I make an attempt to take care of others. She would say , "Son improve yourself everyday and with the seasons". She went on to say," God doesn't just want us to improve ourselves, when the years go by, but also as the seasons begin or end". Trust in the power of God, because when God move things happen and require change.  So if you are having problems today, just pray about it and then ask God for a change. If you are tired of the drama,the confusion, the suffering or  the pain and you are ready to go into a new direction , then you  know that it time for a change .
Have a blessed weekend,
Charles
Mark 11:22 -11:25
Have faith in God, Jesus answered. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to the mountain ,Go throw yourself into the sea and does not doubt in hi heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone,forgive him, so that your Father in Heaven may forgive you ,your sins.

  1. That was a very encouraging message. I've experienced different changes in my life, some good, some bad, from divorce to chsnging jobs, but all for my good. I learned that forgiveness was a major factor in the positive change in my life. Right now I'm at a place in my life where my life changed almost 5 years ago when my dad had a stroke. The Lord knows that was a test. So now I "feel" like my life is on hold right now, so that I can give my dad the attention he needs and at the same time not get weary in well doing. The Lord knows my heart, my desires to do some things, so it's in his hands. It's not always easy but I thank the Lord for strength and patience. He always gives me that break I need to take time for myself and regroup. Just thankful. Change is hard, but good at the same time.

  2. A change is gonna come sometimes in our life. When we feel that nothing is going right and the chips are down its for a reason. That reason is for the season. I thank God for making a change in my life, I prayed for a better me and I'm changing daily. Thank you Jesus. Ask and it shall be given...... I'm guilty of loving others more than myself, and I pray that I learn to love me more, but I'm not meaning this in a selfish way. Just to bring about a change in my life. God bless you Miss Anonymous forchanges care of your dad. God is gonna bless you in so many ways. I know because I took care of my dad before he died with cancer, even though it was all on me ( no help) I had no regrets for being there for him thru thick and thin; it was a blessing to me to have been able to be there for him. And I know you feel the same, and yes I feel your spirit and a change is gonna come. Thank you Charles for this inspiration. Bless the writer Father and the readers. Sylvia

  3. Charles, this is one of your most powerful pieces you have written. I'm quite sure many will be blessed when they not only read it, but let the words be manifested in their hearts, and gain spiritual wisdom that will help them grow spiritually. Change is not only good for our lives, but it is also good for the soul. I agree with you when you stated "Allow God to change your life for the better, then in the process doors will begin to open and you will be able to follow or achieve your dreams." If you have faith and trust in God, whatever you pray and ask God for it brings about a change, when that takes place, you will grow in your spirit. I can testify about change. God has changed my life in many ways, because of my love and trust in Him. Whatever change has occurred in my life all credit goes to my Lord and Savior. God has changed my life complete, and I will continue to do whatever work He has for me to do. Charles, I count it all joy when there is a shift in my life, because I know it's God setting my path and leading me through another open door. The last two weeks God has done a tremendous change in my life, and it seems things are changing for the better, not for me but for Him. I know God is working because I don't make a move without Him, or make a decision without is approval. I thank you from my heart, for sharing such a powerful message. Be Bless!!
