WHEN GOD INVITES YOU to change, God also helps you make the change. But don’t expect big changes to be automatic or easy. Human growth, whether rapid or slow, is a process that involves commitment, hard work, mistakes, and side trips. Almost always you must grow into a change, even after you have stopped a certain behavior. You will need to make adjustments and ask for more help, always paying attention and surrendering as you go.
