We can’t change anyone except ourselves. Period.
One of the most telling signs of a doomed relationship is when one person says the other person has “potential” and that “I’ll change him / her”. If you even think those thoughts, bring that relationship to a screeching stop. Immediately. No one, but our Abba Father can change a person. All we can do to improve our circumstances is to change ourselves: our mindsets, thoughts, attitudes and actions.
May Adonai mercifully and graciously empower us to transform more into His image and away from the flesh and this corrupt world.
