Acknowledgment. It’s the first step to any kind of change, isn’t it? What are we afraid of? Why are we so defensive? What are we trying to protect?

As I consider the caption, my mind is directed to my personal habits, relationships, desires, and goals. Acknowledging a problem is not the solution but it is the beginning. If we don’t at least begin by acknowledging the problem, we will only repeat what we don’t admit because we repeat what we don’t repair.

Much of our power to change is found on the inside. We often underestimate the ability God has given us to grow and restore our life and relationships as well as any environment we desire to influence.
Acknowledgment is not just about owning and embracing what is broken; it is also about owning and exercising our ability to change it.

And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”


Once we acknowledge the problem, we’ll be ready to take the next steps. Have an idea what that might be? Well, it’s CHANGE! As this blog’s title suggests, it’s Time for a Change. Read to learn how to get your journey to change started.

Together, we can invest in great leaders. You can make a difference! 💙
