A New You in The New Year

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, January 1, 2014

The New Year is here and do you feel or perceive any difference in your situation, predicament, or condition? Does everything look the same as last year? Are you stuck without any idea of how to escape? Is it possible to become a new you in the New Year?

I've discovered that God is able to transform you in your condition, even if the circumstances remain the same. Being transformed means you see things differently.

I told the story last night of how in my community development work, I would refer to vacant buildings as "eyesores." After being transformed, I began referring to them as development opportunities. The circumstances of vacancies was the same, but my perspective had been radically altered. Instead of seeing negatives, I was now seeing positives.

That's what God can do for you, he can radically change your perspective when your attention is not directed to yourself and your surroundings, but to Him.

Bad attitudes, bad relationship, bad choices, and bad decision, can all become development opportunities for God to work wonders in you and through you.

Want to become a new you in the New Year?

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." 2 Cor. 5:17 (KJV)
