The change has begun . . . .

What would you change about your life? Let's face it. We all have things about ourselves we want to change, whether they are big or small. Some people dread, even avoid change, while others seek it out like the next big thing, latest fad or adrenaline rush. But change isn't always what we think it is. When it comes to changing our lives, we think it only takes a certain amount of determination, drive and discipline. But there's much more to change. This morning, I wanted Ed Young as he teaches us that change—real change—comes only from God. And when we learn to partner and cooperate with him, we tap into the power that can radically change everything about our lives, forever.

God knows what a visual person I am, and this morning as I had church with myself watching one of these messages.

He used two things that I can carry with me this week:

1. Hokie Pokie- You put your new self, God takes your old self out, you do the Hokie Pokie and God turns your life around thats what it's all about.

2. Ed shared about foundations, and how we really have to have a solid foundation and when we have a sandy foundation and then try to put the Rock on top it doesn't fit. He demonstrated by glass containers and showed it didn't fit. However, when we put the rock as the foundation, and put our loves around it- it works! He has to be first in all things!

I know these are simply concepts that we teach in elementary sunday school, however visually it makes me realize and apply it as I am able to remember it more clearly. So right now here is how I'm chaning. God is taking on the old stuff out of me, moving Him around to be first and once I am good and fully relaying on Him, He will position other things back.
