The Miracle of Change

To be a Christian, we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior from sin and the Lord of our lives, but this is just the beginning.  While His gift of eternal salvation is easy to receive, relinquishing our control is very difficult.

To avoid total surrender, I compartmentalized my life and only assigned certain areas to Jesus.  My favorite area I kept was diet because I knew He wouldn't want me eating junk food.

However, I couldn't pray for spiritual growth without being called on this hypocrisy.  So, I decided to bring Jesus grocery shopping with me.

He took away my junk food cravings and His suggestions of eating healthy with less sugar seemed very reasonable.  Life is so much easier with Jesus!
