I grow tense and timid when coerced to make significant adjustments through circumstances. Change is inevitable but not always convenient. In my early days of working in radio, sustained close up reading of news and commercial copy led to headaches. I needed eyeglasses. In time, I learned to adjust to the vision aids.
Now, at age 65, my hearing is going. I have not checked into hearing aids yet, but have heard stories of how they require time to adjust. Some tell of vast hearing improvement while others complain about discomfort, sharing how annoying it is to hear their own voices at increased volume.
It does call for lifestyle adjustments. At least I still have most of my teeth! That’s a positive attitude. Hmm…let’s consider attitude adjustments. I tense up when coerced through Holy Spirit conviction.
He is right; I do complain too much and tend to want to retaliate when confronted with criticism. I’m well aware of my daily need for attitude adjustments. Is that change sustainable?
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25 HCS).”
I submit to the Holy Spirit; He will empower me to change.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
