Seek to make changes that go beyond the cosmetic and behavior. These things will play a part in your development and transition into a new perspective. Simply changing yourself from the outside in is not enough. Change happens from the inside out because God is working in us.
One of my favorite scriptures is Ezekiel 36: 25, it says:
25 “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. 26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.[b] 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.
Cleansing alone does not create adjustment. It requires an mind renewal and perspective change administered by the Holy Spirit. Experience the unforced rhythm of God’s grace today and let it change your traumatic situation. No matter what you have been through, you can recover all!
God loves you. He always has and He always will.
