That Awful 6-Letter WORD

C-H-A-N-G-E.  I hate change, but I want it in my life.  Stagnant Believers make the waters of the Christian faith putrid.  The water becomes murky and questionable. 


Lord, help me to be changed, from the inside, out... by you.  Let others see YOU LORD, when they look at my life.  Let my life bring you glory, and not shame.

I don't like the unfamiliarity of change, but I like it when I can see things moving in my life.  Stagnant water just sits.  A still pool of dirt and muck. All that can be seen is a cloudy mess of stank sewer water.

I want to be a flowing brook of fresh Spring water, a top God's beautiful mountain.  What about you?


What is it that God wants to change in your life?  A closer walk with Him?  A better, healthier lifestyle?  More organized, balanced living?  Seek Him First (Matthew 6:33).  Ask Him to make the change from the inside - out.


A thousand times I've failed - Still your mercy remains - And should I stumble again - Still I'm caught in your grace -Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades - Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame - My heart and my soul, I give You control - Consume me from the inside out Lord - Let justice and praise, become my embrace - To love You from the inside out - Your will above all else, my purpose remains - The art of losing myself in bringing you praise!

  1. Love this post, I was just stopping by to say hello to some of my new followers and I am so glad I did! I actually wrote a post about this song and letting God change me from the inside out... it is such a powerful song and I really think it can speak to so many! Thanks for the reminder, hope you are having a wonderful day!

  4. Sounds so much like my friends new devotional book, "Life is Fluid" by Marcy Lytle. Change seems to me the word for our life right now...yes, consume from the inside out!

  5. Point of Grace "Begin with Me" is a great song to listen to! It's not a "new" song but still a great one:) Thanks for a great reminder on the importance of "running a good race". We can't be stagnant if we are active and moving!
    Happy Thursday
