People Change

in Encouragement, None of the Above

We’ve all heard it said people don’t really change. I disagree – I strongly disagree. I’ve seen people change, some for the worse, most for the better. I’ve seen this in people I knew for years both side of the change, and I know the change was real and that it was not temporary.

Why am I telling you this? Because some of you need to be encouraged that your bride can change, and some of you need to be encouraged that you can change. In addition, both of those changes are more likely when you think they can happen.

On another note: One thing that has not changed about me is that I hate to bring up money. Lori and I are donation supported – we can survive without it, but the more we receive in donations the more time we can put into marriage ministry because we have to spend less time making a living. So, if you can spare some change

And if I'm specifically working on something, I try to communicate very clearly with people around me so they can recognize improvements and aren't taken aback and can offer support. My husband is especially grateful because I'm not expecting him to be a mind reader. .-= Newlywed & Unemployed´s last blog ..Y'know When you Need a Break...? =-.

Personally, I hate change. I am a man of routine and like it that way. There have been times in my marriage where I have needed to change things. Not only was it hard to recognize, but it was very difficult implement, but with the support of my wife I was able to. Thanks for the reminder and word of encouragement! .-= Eric - BHF´s last blog ..Top 5 Things Every New Husband Should Know =-.

This is good encouragement in an age where it seems everyone is pushing the view that nobody can really change who they are inside. There's an album called "The Church" from Lampmode Recordings, it has a track done by Trip Lee about Conversion and the power of God to really change who we are. I dunno if you can preview it here or not: http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/the-church/id372237960 Good album anyways. :)
