HERE’S WHAT HAPPENS when you surrender to God through Christ.

  1. You get sick and tired of sin’s filth; the smell, the hurt, the guilt.
  2. You notice that your desires have changed.
  3. You make a conscious, volitional approach to God through Christ Jesus.
  4. With sincere desire you pray, “Lord God, I’m in desperate need of you. Get rid of the “whatever” in my life. I surrender. Come into my heart.”
  5. Strange, but as you live in that attitude of surrender, you get more and more hungry for His wonderful peace and purity.
  6. You realize you don’t know it all, but you get more and more hungry in your heart. You desire to be holy!
  7. Sometimes, the desire to be like Jesus, to have His presence , is so overpowering you may cry.
  8. Then, all hell breaks loose. You may fall back a little; seems Satan gets ahold of you, but that strong hunger speaks deep in your soul again and again. You do not give up.
  9. You struggle. You question. You pray. You hurt. You ask why. You’re still hungry. You’re tempted. You want to give up. You’re ready to give up … again.
  10. Then He speaks softly. You start to sing:  🎼🎶🎹

“Come to my soul, blessed Jesus.

Hear me, O Savior Divine

Open the fountain and cleanse me.

Give me a heart like Thine.”

11.  The hunger returns. His Spirit speaks. You repent. You believe. You give up. You surrender. That astonishing, breathtaking, overwhelming, eye-opening joy expands your heart.

12.  Peace.

One thought on “CHANGE

  1. I am so happy to be getting your spiritual food on a more regular basis. My Son, Craig is struggling and in his addiction. He is presently in jail and I have printed your words to send to him. I do pray it touches his heart. He vacillates between being a committed Christian and deciding he does not believe the same as his Mother does.
    Thank you again for your encouragement. You are in my prayers daily.
