New You ( #atozchallenge )

One step at a time.

        Have you ever been discouraged about your life or unhappy with the way things have turned out for you?  Perhaps you are now.   Maybe you wish you could just start over.  Well, I have Good News for you.  You can start over with a brand new you.

         People sometimes get confused by the term "born again".  Jesus often spoke using metaphors and parables.  When he said "born again" he was not referring to a literal rebirth of the body, but a renewal of the mind and spirit.   Becoming a follower of Christ involves a life change and becoming as though you were a new person.

        Many of you have probably experienced a time when you felt renewed in putting an old undesirable self behind you and committing yourself to new behavior.  This might involve getting rid of a bad habit like drug abuse, losing excessive weight, or even getting more education to help you get a better job.  Positive life change can involve many things that can make you feel different and new.

        When you renew your mind and spirit you become like a new you.   Are you ready to make your life better?

  1. Just after I met you in the Feb of last year little did I think my life would change......for the worse, I didn't realise children you brought into the world could be so cruel, I don't know how this situation has come about but yes I could do with being a new me.
    Thanks for the uplifting post,

  2. Thumbs up, Arlee! Since my early days as a Christian my favorite verse has been 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come."

  3. A great thought provoking soul searching post Lee.
    Jesus so graciously gives us a "new" us / the old has passed away though often we try to bring it back

  4. such a good theme, Arlee. This has been like a daily devotional for me. ;-) Such wisdom you have. I've been reading your posts from my feedly reader, so I'm not always commenting, but I thank you for sharing God's love so well.

  5. I thank all of you for being here even if you don't leave a comment. When you do leave one it is particularly encouraging to me. Thanks!


  6. Such a hopeful, encouraging reminder every day is a blank page that can be filled with a brighter story than the last if our heart it in the right place. Nice picture, too!
