Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been and look at what can be. – Marsha Petrie Sue

So, what do we do when life is out of order and we need a change?

Much of the time we complain and say we want change, yet we don’t do anything about it. We know something needs to change, but we get stuck in procrastination or a passive mode, waiting for someone else to do what we need to do. Some people get angry, some have a victim mentality and blame others for their mess, some get depressed, and others just sink into self-pity.

What we need to do during these times is get stirred up with a determination that comes from the Holy Spirit in us and declare, “I’m going to do what I can do to change this!” God has good plans for our lives, and he wants to do a new thing in us and through. But if you’re stuck in the past, thinking about the bad things that happened to you or the things you regret and can’t do anything about, then you won’t see what God is doing right now.

Change is a process, and it’s often a lengthy one. It usually doesn’t happen overnight, but if we’re determined to trust God and obey his Word, he will be faithful to give us the grace and strength we need to do what we can do and experience the changes he has for us.

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:18–19
