One thing in life that we can always count on is change. Life is full of changes that constantly surround us: from the seasons that sprout, to the clothes we wear, to the emotions we encompass everyday—change is inevitable. The biggest change that we can experience is the change within ourselves. When we decide that we are going make a change for the better, we become intertwined and in-tune with clarity. As we rid ourselves from the things that are holding us down in repetitive patterns, we can hear the voice of God with better understanding and comprehension. Our communication with Him becomes more involved and effective. Whatever you are actively doing to transform or improve your life honors yourself and the Lord. Improving your thought process will help you to show up in your assignment fully healed. Bettering your relationship with God will allow you to pour encouragement into someone. Losing what you are accustomed to having, will permit you to gain everything that you actually need. Change is pivotal. Transformation is the root of Jesus. Whatever He touches cannot stay the same.
Choosing to transform your habits, desires, decisions and actions is always a choice; the Holy Spirit will prompt you, but your works will pave the way. You have to decide that you are going to put your faith and works together to make the improvements and adjustments that are necessary to thrive with God. As you move through transformation, the more changes you will see not only in yourself, but in your space. The people that you invite around will change. The conversations you have will be different. Your routine will reflect your growth. Transformation brings us closer to God. There is a shift in the things that you will crave in life. There is a change in your choices. Conviction ultimately leads us to change. In our conviction, we become aware of the importance of changing what is displeasing to ourselves and God. You cannot have true transformation in the flesh, but only in the Spirit. Laying down something can only create effective change and healing. Acknowledging what needs to be changed is the most beautiful step you can take with Jesus.
The change you will see will become part of your daily life. Transformation is beautifully crafted when it is done with God. You will start to understand things that otherwise would make no sense. Your judgment becomes clearer. You will start to invest in the things where the Holy Spirit leads you. There is a grace that will walk with you throughout the process and forever. Transformation is a lifelong practice. We are constantly growing and evolving in Jesus. Conviction will always happen. There is no better positioning of your transformation than in the presence of God. You can fully abide in His love and truth. Keep going in your strides toward transforming and improving yourself in life; Jesus is with you.
