Change is Hard

Change is Hard


I began this year with a serious commitment to eating healthy. And then I got really, really sick.

I have Crohn’s disease, and extreme changes in my diet were really hard on my system. My doctor promised I would get healthier, but I had to be patient and learn to process what I was now feeding my body.

If you’ve just started studying God’s Word, you may know the feeling. I remember when I began; it was hard! I struggled to absorb all I was reading. I wanted it to be easy and make a difference right away, and I got discouraged.

Let’s both take my doctor’s advice. Take smaller bites of God’s Word, be consistent and don’t give up. Give your heart and mind time to process it. And most importantly, have faith that it is making a difference.
