Ephesians 4:22-24 (New Living Translation)

22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

What happens when you become a Christian? You get a new life! God gives you a new life in Him. He takes your old life and replaces it with a new one. He performs a miracle in you. What are you supposed to do because of that? It's kind of like the old saying...Off with the old and On with the new. Let the Lord wash all of those old thoughts out of your mind and replace them with new thoughts...His thoughts. Let Him heal and renew your mind. Then you have to believe that you are different. That you are good enough to do whatever God has called you to do. Then you have to do it. When things get tough, and you have doubts, you pray. You continue to pray until all the doubts and fears are gone. Prayer will get you to God. If you walk away for awhile, prayer will take you back to God. Once you find God you can have peace. Your mind can be at rest even when things are hectic all around you.

I know that to really have effective change in my life I have to pray more. God can't change me if I don't talk to Him and give Him opportunity. God and prayer is the key to everything.

God Is The Key

GOD is the key
to a life gone wrong
GOD is all you need
when you can't seem to hold on

Prayer will touch God
when He seems far away
Prayer is what you do
when you have gone astray

GOD heals your mind
when you can't think anymore
GOD gives you hope
to fight all the more

Prayer will help you find
the quiet that you need
Prayer will help you steady
your soul so you find peace

God is your fortress
where you can go to hide
God is always there
right by your side

Prayer will take you into
the presence of God
Where you will find Him waiting
just listening for your heart
