Why settle for good enough when you can have better. Everyone wants something more. The grass is greener right? There’s nothing wrong with wanting more, the problem is how we obtain more. Do we go about it wisely or do we act on impulse. Are we searching to fill an emptiness inside us causing harm along the way?
The easiest and best way to better is through Jesus. Guys, there is nothing wrong with wanting more, just keep Jesus in the center of it all. We wrapped up a series called “Cause It’s Better.” One of the things my pastor said was “you have to let go of the good to get to the better.” That is so good!!! Do yourself a favor and listen.
Some of you may be thinking, I already have better (job, spouse, kids, house, money, car…) so why do I need Jesus? Good question, I’ll tell you: BECAUSE HE’S BETTER!!!!!
Here are some examples of what Jesus does:
He turns happy to joyful. Heartbroken to whole. Searching to answers. Lost to found. Hurt to healed. Weary to rest. Angry to loving. Grudges to forgiving. Selfish to selfless. Broke to generous. Fear to conqueror. Weak to strong. Scared to courageous. Unloved to bride. Orphan to daughter. Pain to strength.
I will tell you from personal experience, Jesus turned my unforgiving heart to forgiving, allowing me to tear down the walls I built up and have a relationship with the person that hurt me most. I have also conquered the way irrational fear has crippled me. Don’t get me wrong, the devil knows fear is the way to get me, but I have learned, when I feel the fear creeping in, I stand on God’s word. I speak truth over my heart and situation and I stay strong.
The best thing about Jesus is His gift is free. All we have to do is accept it. We have to realize we are a hot mess without Him and then let Him in and allow Him to do what only He can do.
Look at these girls. You’d be crazy not to want better!
