I am not the boy or man I was. I have changed, not because time marches on. That change only makes you more of what you were.
If you had anger, greed, or fear, ruling in your life, it just gets worse. If you are generous, kind, and loving, it will grow with you.
Age is an amplifier of that which is our Natural state.
This is not the change I am referring to.
I have always been a me first, person. Unfortunately, if I do not pay attention, I still am. I still notice you have more than me.
Money, looks, love, friends, homes, cars, even your personality, knowledge, your patience, anything…
I may covet all you have and are.
So what and how does true change happen? Only by Jesus. Only when we allow Him to live and rule within us.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.”
Lord, help me to walk with You.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
