Day 26 of Surrendering to God Change Me

Author Stormie Omartian says that one of the most impactful prayers that you can pray is, “Change me Lord.” I believe this is true, and I think that this may be one of the most humbling prayers to pray.  I often desire  that my circumstances change or people in my life change their attitudes, but to realize that I need to change. Whoa, that is really hard to admit sometimes. Change is hard. I have prayed asking God, “Why am I the one who need to change?” ,but as I tell my children the only person’s opinions and actions you can control are your own. I need to remember that I cannot change anyone around me, but I can ask to change me, and then follow His leading. I think this is a big step in living a life surrendered to God.
