How often do we tell ourselves or others that we’re going to change? It’s easier said than done. 

Change, transformation, metamorphosis, and rebirth, and all of these words require action. It requires a push from us, taking the first step, looking fear in the eyes, and telling ourselves that we’re conquering them one by one. 

But more often, we were stuck in telling ourselves that we’ll change, even if we’re not. It’s more like we’re just convincing ourselves. It’s like we’re the boy who cried wolf, and people come rushing in expecting our change when it really isn’t happening. Don’t wait until the people around you lose faith in you. 

While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”- Hebrews 13:8 

Don’t wait until you lose all the opportunities and time in the world to be a better person. Don’t let fear motivate your change, instead let your motivation be rooted in your faith. People change, and as they say, change is inevitable, but only God remains the same.

You may have anger management issues affecting your relationships and career; you said you would change, but everything just seems to piss you off. 

Go back to the root cause, and think hard about what is triggering your anger internally? Think whether you can work your issue out by yourself, with a church member or a mental health expert?

Most of the time, it’s the condition of our hearts that speak for ourselves whether we’re dealing with anger management or not; it all boils down to what we deal with from the inside.

You may be dealing with a change of lifestyle; after years of living independently, you find marriage life harder than it looks like, and now you’re not sure what to do. You let your partner do all the work in the house or juggle with responsibilities.

There are many times that we think change happens only if a life-changing event happened in our lives, such as promotion, a new haircut, pregnancy, death, or anything tragic.

The truth is that change doesn’t have to be grand; it can be a silent revolution happening inside of you, the whisper in your heart that you’ve been ignoring. 

It is prompting you to take the right direction and rethink your decisions. Your spirit has been craving for change, but sometimes not in the way you want it, but  what you need, and ultimately what’s best for you.

We all want the idea of change, packing your bags and starting a new life, leaving a toxic relationship after years of tolerating it, chasing after your dream career. 

The romantic idea of change, oh how it excites us, isn’t it? But walking the talk is what matters. It’s like having faith; are you putting in the work? Is your lifestyle showing who you are in Christ? Has your faith changed something deep inside of you? 

 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”- Psalm 32:8

Whatever it is, you need to change or let go. Only you and the people around you will tell you what you need to change for the better. But only God can transform your 360 degrees if you allow him to do the work in you.

Change is hard, especially if we’re going to work on it ourselves; it would take everything in us. It’s going to take a village for us to start it, but rest assured that you’re not alone in your journey. 

God is with you from the beginning, middle, and end. All you have to do is include him in your plans and seek his will because, honestly, we couldn’t do it by ourselves. 

We need a God who will help us out and instruct us on where to go. Not to mention, you also have your family and friends as your support system. 

Go ahead, don’t be afraid to seek help, and work on being a better version of yourself. It’s never too late!
