Let’s take a look at the word change. Change defined is to transform or convert.
We each have the ability to adopt the principle of change. The very effort which has to be taken into consideration, when one is attempting to change is a tug and war between our spirit and flesh. I use the term flesh in reference to the mindset or carnality.. Every day we encounter diverse temptations or trials. It is beneficial to endure and allow the fruit of patience to develop. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. When we respond from the seat of emotions, our thrust can be destructive to others and ourselves. So it behooves us to live in a manner of self-control. This concept can be applied to every arena in our lives. Have self-control is vital and profitable for our body, soul, and spirit.
