A New Beginning

Change is hard no matter who you are.  We get into a routine and the daily tasks become familiar.  Though we might complain from time to time about the random events that we have to deal with, overall we’re happy with the way our lives work.

But change isn’t always bad, even if you really resist the changes.  Sometimes change leads us to newer and better opportunities.  Sometimes change means we have to get rid of old habits and routines and develop a new habit and routine that will help.

MVAO started back to school near the end of August.  Change from the care-free days of summer vacation to required daily attendance can be hard, but not impossible.

What about the change from not reading the Bible to starting a manageable Bible reading plan?  (Email the pastor and he can get you set up with a Bible reading plan, or go online and you can find a number of Bible reading plans.) 

What about the change from not attending worship to giving church a try once again?  (You’re probably missing out on a lot of things at church simply because you don’t want to make that change.)

I challenge you today to make a change in your life and your family’s life that will lead you back to God.  Contact me if you have any questions.
