Have you ever heard someone say, “Something needs to change!” Or maybe you’ve said it yourself.
It’s easy to feel this way when life gets stressful and we’re overwhelmed — like when our schedules are too full and we’re working too hard and have too many commitments.
So what do we do when life is out of order and we need a change?
Much of the time we complain and say we want change, yet we don’t do anything about it. We know something needs to change, but we get stuck in procrastination or a passive mode, waiting for someone else to do what we need to do. Some people get angry, some have a victim mentality and blame others for their mess, some get depressed, and others just sink into self-pity.
What we need to do during these times is get stirred up with a determination that comes from the Holy Spirit in us and declare, “I’m going to do what I can do to change this!”
As Christians, we’re partners with God; this means He has a part and we have a part. And the simple truth is, if we will do what we can do, God will do what we cannot do.
