Reluctant to Change

"When you are reluctant to change,
 think of the beauty of Autumn. "
 — V.B. Brown

To make a change is not easy and not common.

We like our routines and develop comfortable ruts.
(Max Lucado)

Are you needing a change ?

Lord, only you can change me.
  I realize the power to make a change comes from the Holy Spirit who is living within me.
I pray for a deep and more intimate relationship with
 God through you, Jesus Christ.
John 14:16-17
16 and I will pray the Father,
 and He will give you another Helper,
 that He may abide with you forever--
17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive,
 because it neither sees Him nor knows Him;
 but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

What a beautiful day to worship our
 Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

It is Sunday and I'm joining the others at

Thank You! I was driving home tonight, a few hrs. alone, praying that God direct the change in my life. Enjoying the fall colors here in Michigan, & believing that only God could have come up with the colors of Autumn. And then your title confirmed what I was praying.
