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, colleges, 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 and technology has made this possible. Our bodies change from birth to the grave. Its so inspiring, observing so many seniors of age who now workout at the gym. They have decided to keep their body in shape. Seniors are taking more classes and learning hobbies such as crafts, computers, swimming, eating healthy, and other activities, etc. The late Jack Lalane or Richard Simmons was on to something over 40-50 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. Risk takes sacrifice and sel-denial. Change challenges us and stretches us to do things or go to places we thought were not even possible. Change can cause a revolution or transformation of a complete transformation. Change begins in our mind and thought process to have faith and confidence to trust God through the process, even in the most difficult times.
Generations change, cultures change, nations change, corporations change, and yes religions change, but one thing that is immutable in Gods 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”. Heb. 13:8
“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to PUT OFF your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to PUT ON the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness”. Ephesians 4:22-24 NIV
Allow God to change you from the inside out you will not be disappointed and you will be happy to keep the change. “Though the outward man is perishing, the inward man is being renewed day by day”.
Dare to allow change your heart, attitude. And life today. Enjoy your day and week my friend and 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
