Cubes of Change
This months project was a lot of fun to put together. I chose to go with the physical change in my family over the years by using the first pic of Dh & I and baby pics of my children with current pics of us. I then added Bible verses rub-ons & stickers to highlight how God changes us by his indwelling Holy Spirit, by prayer and obedience to him.

As I was working on my project I was thinking how has God changed me. BUT the question that kept coming to mind was have I let God change me. God does change us but we can get in the way of that process by our disobedience and pride. We often think we can change ourselves, but those changes are short lived. It is when we give ourselves over to God and listen to His Holy Spirit and live in obedience to him that we see changes in our lives.
AS we rely on the Holy Spirit we begin to see the fruits of the spirit in our lives. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodnesss, faithfullness, gentleness and self control.
So my question of have I let God change me, yes I have but its a long and slow process and it will be continuing all the way through this life.
love & Blessings
Dont forget to upload pics of this project and any others that you complete into our gallery.

I love them Gail :) - and you are so right - lasting change needs to be from God, not in our own strength
