Struggling for Change

Ever struggle to change a certain area in you life? Something that you've worked on over and over again and nothing seems to change and now you are frustrated and ready to give up?
Me too, there are certain areas in my life that I so desperately long to see change and I get frustrated when I don't see it happen.
Today as I was doing my reading I came across a verse that I've heard a million times and it's a verse I love and yet today as I read it and saw something completely different.
Here it is;
'God can do anything you know-far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within is , his Spirit deeply and gently within us.'
This is what I saw, God knows our area of struggle he sees what we so desperately want to change and he wants to team up with us. He wants to help us by working within us to bring the change along.
As long as we are trying to come up with this change on our own we may be successful for a bit but it won't be lasting change.
So what have you been trying to change for so long??
Unrelenting Anger? Bitterness towards someone? Unforgiveness? Laziness? Addictions of any kind- alcohol, drugs, porn, food, tv?
I'm here to tell you change is possible and God wants to do more in and through your life than you could ever dream possible even in your wildest dreams!!
God is strong and he wants you strong !!
The question now is will you trust him today to work that change in you however long it takes??
Love you friends!!!
