Just a couple of days ago, I downloaded a new operating system for my smartphone.
I had learned about its availability and the positive things it had to offer.
In making the decision to begin the download, I was aware that with the new operating system in place, there would be some changes that I wouldn’t be used to.
The way that things had been would not all be the same.
Some aspects of the system would be improved upon; some would be completely new and still others from the previous system would have been deleted all together.
Although change is good, it is sometimes difficult to take that first step to incorporate it.
Many years ago, I received a new spiritual operating system—one that changed me completely.
My old way of living was becoming such a burden to carry.
Things just hadn’t turned out the way I had planned.
Even though I felt that I was in control of my life, my decisions weren’t always productive and many times they were harmful.
With my level of discontent and disappointment, I knew that things needed to change.
When I came face to face with the choice to allow Jesus to become my Lord and Savior, I was ready.
Ready to get rid of the old way of operating my life.
Ready for a new operating system—one where God was in control and guiding me.
Asking for forgiveness of all that I had done to displease Him and asking Him to become the Lord of my life, I changed.
God did come into my heart that day.
Things have never been the same.
It was the most important decision of my life.
Are you tired of operating on your own through every moment, every hour of your day?
God is ready to change all that.
Don’t wait another minute……
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
