You have to change before your circumstances can change. Many times God uses our circumstances to drive us closer to him. What God has done in you by his grace and mercy, is a gift to us that you receive only by faith. The path of righteousness grows brighter and brighter everyday. You are changing in His image from glory to glory. You are in the process of being changed. God is not upset that you have not arrived yet. He sees that you’re making the effort to change. Don’t let guilt hold you back. God lives in you & He knows your heart. Although you are not where you need to be, be thankful that you’re not where you used to be. Change can be initially frightening but eventually refreshing!
