Ezekiel 36:26

Tonight I went to my Life Group and it was good. What we study about from the Bible is great. I learn a lot by just listening to what everyone has to say. But tonight there is a whole new thought process happening for me. What seems to be jumping out at me isn't the scriptures that we read and talked about, it's the Life Group itself. The definition I have heard for Life Group is...doing life together. I have never "done life together" very well. But God is using the people in this group and I feel myself changing a little more each week. The Lord is changing my thoughts...and most of all...my heart. When I am there I feel love...comfort...peace...joy...and most of all...safety.

This scripture just came to mind...

Ezekiel 36:26

26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.

God not only gives us a new and clean heart when we become Christians but, He continues to transform us as long as we are pressing into Him and accept the work He is doing in us. God wants to heal us and change us so we can receive all He has for us.

My study Bible says...Why try to patch up your old life when you can have a new one.

It's hard for me to believe but...God really is changing my heart. I'm finding that God is breaking down the walls...fortress...that I have built to keep most people out. He is an amazing God that does amazing things! I am thankful and

still learning

Hi Chelle - I am so glad to hear that. When you are in a life group where your heart can change and grow, and you feel safe, you're in a great (God) spot.
God bless

That's right Chelle, we are not meant to do it alone. Jesus says the old man is now dead, we are a new creation in Him, and we can all be encouraged by one another.

It is so awesome to have those around us we can trust...I think trusting is challenging, at least for me. BUT, there is always a but, God can change that area too. No need to patch it...love that! Many blessings!
