A to Z Blogging Challenge: The "C" Edition

From my personal, handwritten journal...from my alone time with God:

Change

Change.  I have proved over and over that I am unable to change myself!  Have you ever found yourself asking God to change you?  “Change my heart, Oh God, make it ever true….”  Or “Create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me…”    I spent my life as a Christian asking (or begging) God to change me.   I finally figured out that this particular prayer is like any other prayer, I really need to believe that God will do what I’m asking….to make me more like Him. 

There is freedom in change, and we will only find it in our Lord, the God of love and mercy.  Seek Him, and He will make His ways known to you.  Trust Him, and Him only…don’t trust in your own strength to change.

The "C" Word of the Day:

craw·fish
[kraw-fish] verb
Informal:  to back out or retreat from a position or undertaking. 

I was going to use the word "collude" for the word of the day, but I crawfished on it.

  Johnny Cash was my first crush...I was six years old.   
He'll always have a special place in my heart.
I found this wall dedicated to him in Nashville, 
so, of course, I had to have a picture.

  7. The only constant in life is 'change.' I think that our own action, combined with prayer, will bring better results. God can help us change, but it really comes down to us doing something positive about it, and God will make up the rest.

    Nice post, and all the best through April!
