Recently I was asked, “What would you like to change if you could change anything about yourself?” I thought for a second and said, “Well, I’d like to change myself.” This person looked at me sort of funny and said, “Well, what’s wrong with you?” I said, “Well, I know that if I constantly change myself, if I work on myself, if I’m constantly growing and improving, then I have the ability to change and impact the things around me.”
See, we weren’t meant to be stagnant and live unfulfilled lives. We were meant to grow, change and improve. I want to be a better father. I want to be a better husband. I want to be a better pastor. I want to have more discipline, more focus and receiving more wisdom. I want to be able to hear God’s voice clearer. I want hear His truth spoken everywhere I go! I want to be a better person and a stronger example for Him. Don’t you?
Today, I just encourage you; don’t ever settle for “GOOD ENOUGH.” Don’t ever settle for “JUST GETTING BY.” Keep pressing forward. Keep pressing into God. Let His Word change your thinking and transform you into His image. Be the best version of you that you can possibly be! Don’t be afraid to grow; don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to change because a little change will do you good!
“And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude].” (Ephesians 4:23amp)
