I recently ran across a sermon series from March 2004 titled “Change.” During that time, I must have found an acronym for the word change that goes like this:
- Consistent Choices
Truly if we want to change our lives, we must embrace each and every word from this acronym. We must begin to make consistent choices that reflect our purpose. If the change that we want to make is not heartfelt then it will not last. We must take action! We need to become people who are described with verbs not adverbs or adjectives.
We must make the change in our lives non-negotiable. If we are consistently choosing to exercise then we must make sure that everyone knows that that one hour a day is ours! We need to genuinely believe that the choices we are making will take us in the direction we want to go. And we need to educate ourselves! Maybe we need to read nutrition books, attend exercise classes, or sign up for a cooking class to learn how to prepare nutritious meals.
We often see change as being super hard. Honestly- it’s quite easy in that it begins with a simple decision.
What do you want to change?
