Transformed

Bible Reading: Romans 12:1-3

I was approaching my senior years when God let me know in no uncertain terms that my many years of prodigal-son-type bad behaviour — excessive drinking and gambling, for instance — needed to come to an end.  After crashing my truck into a tree during one of my drunken stupors, I finally saw a clear choice: I could allow God to rule the rest of my life, or I could choose the world.  I made the decision to let God’s love, grace, and forgiveness convert me into a fruitful Christian, which began with repentance and breaking away from the wasteful life I had led for 55 years.

Abstaining from that lifestyle of reckless behaviour changed my life to one worth living — fasting from my worldly ways in order to feast on God’s word.  I now try to serve others and give back in gratitude for all God has given me.  I will always be a Christian who is under construction, attempting to refrain from the bad habits that plagued me for so many years.  But now I have a saviour who has transformed me into a wiser, loving, and more caring person.

Prayer: Dear God, guide us each day so that we may come to love you more and do your will.  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
