Take time to change yourself.

If we want change we have to change. Take time to reflect on the changes you need to make in yourself, and see if that makes a difference in the way you view others and the day! Now we know change, if we truly think about it, does not come easy. We have developed habits over the days months and years that are hard to break!

Knowing that we had to invest time to develop these habits, we have to understand, it will take the same investment of time to change them! The Apostle Paul had some bad habits that needed changing he hated Christians for one! He had a habit of looking at, what he thought anyway, was wrong thinking people had about their relationship to God! 

So he set out to change their thinking not realizing that maybe just maybe it was changes he needed to make in himself, and his view of God, that needed changing. As you read the story in Acts chapter 9 you will see God had different plans for Paul. Paul had an experience with God that changed his whole view of relationship, as you see, Paul could not really change anything, it took a relationship change with God.

So when we think we are having a bad day and we are looking at others faults and short comings. We may need to stop and invest a little time in us and check our relationship with Jesus, if you have one, If not why not try it! And see if that does not change our outlook on others and life itself. It does take change, yet somethings we cannot change without the help of God!

Take time to change yourself with the help of Jesus, know and understand, we really need the help to change. If we learn to look up to Jesus and not out at the world! We will have a completely different outlook on ourselves, others, and the day! II Corinthians 5:17
