Recently I've been going through a season of introspection and self discovery--learning things about myself that I didn't know were there, reasons for why I behave the way I do. And some of it's not pretty. ;-)
That long list of not-so-good things could be truly depressing, if:
I didn't know God can change me from the inside out. Indeed, that's where He does some of His best work.
I couldn't look back and see where He's already changed me in my life, from one person into a totally different person, on the inside.
