One of my initial goals in counseling is to help the person begin to believe that change is possible. It isn’t even to help them to see HOW change will happen initially, it is simply to help them believe that IT IS POSSIBLE.
It’s not possible because they or I are going to do anything to change whatever it is. No… change is possible because of Jesus Christ, because of the cross, because of who God is and what He wants for His children.
Once we believe change is possible, hope fills our being like a breath of spring air fills our lungs.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV
What is it in your life that seems to never change? That you have come to believe is impossible to change? That feels like it will remain forever? Take heart, change is possible because of Jesus. So for today, can you believe it possible?
