KEEP THE CHANGE

Life is always about change, whether we realize it or not changes are inevitable. We can change for the better or for the worse. Some of us have a difficult time with change and resist it at every angle. Corporations, churches, education, politicians, board meetings, sports, etc. “We’ve never did it that way before” or for others like the old song says,”I shall not be moved!”

Our world is changing so rapidly and science technology has made this possible. Our bodies change from birth to the grave and yes we are mortal. Its so inspiring, observing so many seniors of age who now workout at the gym. These older people have decided to keep their body in shape. Seniors are taking more classes and learning hobbies such as crafts, computers, and swimming, hiking, etc. The late Jack Lalane was on to something over 40 years ago!

Change does not mean we need to compromise our core values and beliefs, but it does mean we have to take risks and risk usually cost us something if it is worth anything.

Change challenges us and stretches us to do things or go to places we thought were not possible or even cause an evolution of complete transformation. Change begins in our mind and thought process to have faith and confidence to trust God through the process.

Generations change, cultures change, nations change, corporations change, and yes religions change, but one thing that is immutable in God’s Word is that Jesus never changes and will always be faithful even when we are faithless and stubborn not to change.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”.
Hebrews 13:8 NLT

“God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his mind. So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary”.
Hebrews 6:17‭-‬19

God is faithful and loyal to His promises and his oath. He is loyal to His covenant, especially His covenant of grace and forgiveness.

You have to take the first step and allow God to change you from the inside out. Although change can be challenging and painful at times you will not be disappointed and will be happy to keep the change. “Though the outward man is perishing, the inward man is being renewed day by day”.

Remember, change is a daily process and we never arrive, because the Lord has something better in store for you and me. May you recover everything good the Lord has in store for you!

Enjoy your day and weekend my friend. Go out there and make a difference!

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
