What is geolocation and

what do we use it for?



Geolocation is a tool we use to determine which of our offices services your area by identifying the country from which you are currently accessing our bookstore. If this is not the correct country, just change the location to the country you’re in. For further assistance, contact our office.
 

Truth Precedes Change

by Joyce Meyer - posted August 30, 2014

And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.
—John 8:32

Is there something you’d like to change about yourself or the way you live? Change begins with truth. It’s almost impossible to see the need for change or to know how we should change if we don’t face the truth about where we are. In the process of change, admitting the truth about ourselves is often the hardest part. We don’t need to feel guilty about the way we are, we just need to ask for God’s forgiveness and be excited about change.

Let me share a practical example of how facing truth and changing has worked in my life. If I’m eating too much and don’t want to face the truth about that, I will make excuses. “I don’t eat as much as some people.” “My metabolism must be slowing down.” “The dry cleaners shrank my pants.” Excuses can be endless! Excuses, though, are actually reasons stuffed with lies.

Once I decide to stop making excuses, I can admit the truth. Concerning eating, I might say to a friend, “I’ve been eating too much and that’s why I’ve gained weight.” When I do that I am taking responsibility for the problem. That’s the truth, and it will set me free.

I have had to face many truths’ in my past and still do. When I have a bad attitude or am angry with someone and yet pretending not to be, it is only truth that will set me free. The same principles and processes apply to any challenge we face in life. If we want to change, we have to start with the truth. Ask God to reveal truth to you about you! When He does if it begins to hurt just realize that the pain you feel is actually a healing pain that is working toward your freedom and increased peace and joy.

Love Yourself Today: Lord, help me to see and admit the truth about every area in my life, and, with your help, make the changes I need to make.
