Okay. You hate the life you’re living. You can’t believe you’ve allowed yourself to fall this far. The shape you’re in, the things you’re doing. They’re disgusting to you, it’s beyond your imagination what other people might think if they really knew you. The drugs, the alcohol, the sex. Or, maybe for you, it’s the lying, the stealing, the lost relationships, a secret life. You. Hate. Living. Like. This.
The good news is: You can change!
A long time ago God threw you a rope, you just haven’t grabbed ahold yet. See, God isn’t shocked by you, he isn’t shocked by your behavior no matter how bad it is. Why should he be. He knew everything about you when he invited you into relationship with him. Yes, he’s already invited you to be a part of his family. He wants to help you.
I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. Ezekiel 36
If you pray, will God just miraculously heal you? He could, but that’s usually not how he works. However, if you’ll link yourself to him, if you’ll turn your life over to him, he’ll lead you in the right direction. To a friend who cares, to a church that will help, to a family member who’s been reaching out. To whoever and whatever you need to get back to real life. This is what God does, it’s what he’s all about.
The good news? You can change. Start right this minute.
