The other day I realized that I have truly changed. This came about while I was doing laundry, I was carrying my laundry basket to my bedroom when I stubbed my toe, really hard. There was a time when something like that would happen and the four letter words would come flying out of my mouth but instead I hollered, “Glory to God.” Moments later as I was leaving my room I stubbed my toe again, the same toe and once again the words, “Glory to God” flew out of my mouth. What really sealed the deal for me was what happened an hour later. While I was cooking dinner and slicing onions I cut my finger really deep, the pain was unreal and without a single thought I screamed to the top of my lungs, “Glory to God, Hallelujah!” I realized then that when a person can praise God in the midst of pain, God has truly transformed them and you know what I couldn’t be happier about it.
I can’t pinpoint the exact day that this heart transformation took place and I am the first to say that I am far from perfect but somehow by no effort of my own, God placed His praise on my tongue. He changed me, made me a better me, He enriched my life with His love and His grace.
You may not be where you want to be, doing the things you desire to do most . You may be going through the worst time in your life. You may think that it’s all up to you, that you have to be the one to make things happen but I can honestly say that all you have to do is trust God and wait on Him. Turn to Him in prayer with your doubts, fears, your dreams and your desires because true change begins and ends with Him and because He loves you with an everlasting love He will move mountains and part seas for you. I don’t know who this simple message is for but I believe God wants you to stay encouraged you are not alone in this thing called life 🙂 so don’t give up.
I cried out to Him with my mouth; His praise was on my tongue. Psalm 66:17 NIV
