The Change That Changed My Life
God wants all His children to have the peace that passes all understanding and to feel and know His love for them. He also wants us to willingly come to Him and intimately get to know Him through His teachings.
But, for some of us, we had to virtually “go through Hell to get to Heaven.” Some of us had to learn that in the tough times all we had was God’s love for us and His saving Grace. And then we had to make that slow journey home and come back to Him. We had to recognize and be willing to make certain changes in order for Him to bring us back. One of the changes I personally had to make was to stop smoking. I knew that I had to stop before God was going to use me in the way that He had been preparing for me.
But I felt trapped. I had tried to stop smoking over and over only to relapse again and again. I was tired of going to great lengths to hide my smoking from family, friends and co-workers. I knew it was unhealthy and self-destructive but I just couldn’t seem to quit. But, finally, with God’s strength and His grace I was able to overcome this terrible addiction. I finally put that pack down and walked away from the cigarettes forever. This was the change that has changed my life.
In the first part of my book I share my story and the secrets to my success. After smoking cigarettes for over 35 years and trying many different ways to quit I was able to put them down and finally started to grow and find God’s purpose for my life.
Following my story on how I stopped smoking are the chapters of life lessons and some of the early learned teachings that helped bring me back home. With every one of these teachings we need to be ready to hear and then ready to implement them into our lives. I hope you can read with an open mind and heart and feel the tug of Jesus calling you back home. Think of them as God speaking directly to you.
But before we start on these lessons we must R.E.A.D.Y. ourselves to truly hear what God is trying to say to us. Are you Ready to get R.E.A.D.Y.?
