Some People Change

Here’s to the strong, thanks to the brave. Don’t give up hope, some people change. Against all odds, against the grain. Love finds a way, some people change.

I’ve always liked this song. I believe that anyone can change, no matter who they’ve been and what they’ve done in their life. Not everyone does, and I recognize that. But anyone can…and some people do, just like the chorus of that song says.

Still a Dreamer / Anything Can Be Made New

Yep, that’s me…still a dreamer, just like it says in the lyric in the song below. No matter what life throws my way it will always be the case. Hard times, pessimism, setbacks, and all the rest of the things that try to get in the way of peace and happiness…go ahead world, do your worst 🙂

I don’t have every answer in life but I’m trusting You one day at a time, because You can make a weak heart stay alive forever.

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

What about you? If things aren’t going the way you thought they would in your life right now, believe that it will get better. It will! Don’t buy into the all of the negativity that’s out there in the world. Never stop dreaming or expecting the best for yourself 🙂

To quote Andy Dufresne’s character in the movie Shawshank Redemption:
‘Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.’

Don’t believe the lies that say there is no hope, that miracles don’t happen, that you don’t deserve to be happy, that you don’t deserve love or forgiveness, that worthwhile things aren’t worth it, or that you can’t change for the better.

I believe anything can be made new through the power of God’s healing – people, health, relationships, behavior, outlooks on life, you name it. He can make anything new. He’s been doing it since the beginning of time.

Have a great day everyone.

(The members of Sanctus Real, the band that performs the song I included earlier in this post, gave some personal testimonies in a separate video they produced for their YouTube channel. Thought it was worth sharing here, especially the part from 1:14 to 1:37. Even when things aren’t working, God is there and He always will be.)

The Solid Rock

When my world falls apart and the light turns to dark. When the clouds gather ’round and the storms overwhelm. When my heart breaks in half and my strength cannot last.

The world is going to flat-out bring you to your knees sometimes. Dreams don’t always come true, things don’t always work out the way you wanted them to, plans get changed…and on, and on, and on. It happens.

Do you have a solid rock to stand on when this happens? Did you know you have a loving and merciful God who created you, knows everything about your past, present, and future, who has a plan for your life and who will be that solid rock for you and so much more? He’s there. He loves you. He’ll never leave you.

Just wanted you to know that, in case you didn’t know. Reach out to Him and He will be there.

If things are going bad, they’ll get better. Hope you have a good day today.
