It has been 11 days since God met with me in such a wonderful way. After I had done something so totally stupid, hurtful and very unchristian, God began dealing with my heart. For 3 solid days and nights, He spoke with me bringing convicting power.

Then on Sunday 1/13, He called to me saying, "Come pray. We need to get this settled." I responded with obedience, meeting with Him at the altar twice that morning. He requested complete and total control over my life asking me to release all "rights" to Him. I responded with a timid "yes" taking the risk of letting go.

For almost two weeks now, We have met every morning with His Word and a cup of hot chocolate. God has been opening His Word to me showing me promises for those who are submitted in obedience, re-enforcing the promise given to me that Sunday morning.

He has also opened my eyes to areas that He wants to work change in my life. This is what God has revealed to me about myself that He wants to change as I allow Him to take control and mold my personality into His image:
Arrogant to Meek
Disobedient to Obedient
Control to Submission
Selfishness to Generosity
Self-gratification to Meeting the needs of others
Blind to Sight
Sin-sick to Healed
Defeat to Victory
Ugly to beautiful
Aggressive to Docile

At first I was overwhelmed by the changes that are needed. However God is in control and all will be accomplished according to His will in His timing. Already in just these few short days, I can feel God working in my life.

I once was blind, but now I see!

    My word for last year was "Surrender." I did not achieve it as needed. It continues to be my word for this year. Thanks for the reminder. Praying for us both. Hugs!
