T is for Transformation! #abcblogging

I remember the day I was transformed!  I was sixteen years old and I knelt next to my bed and accepted Jesus. 

Looking back I was young and had no idea that I would need Jesus as much as I did and I do.  See my Mom was very sick back then and it was Jesus that got me through those tough times.  When she went to heaven it was that assurance that I would meet her again that got me through.

I jump ahead and a bit off topic.  Transformation is the topic at hand. 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  - Romans 12:2

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  - I Corinthians 5:17

See when I met Jesus that day I was a changed person.  Some things became easier - like praying and trusting in Him and some things because a challenge.  See my sin (drinking, smoking, foul language) didn't feel so good anymore.  I didn't have to give those up but I did because there was no enjoyment in them anymore.  

It wasn't an overnight change - which my highschool friends would attest too!  However it was rather drastic like night and day!  

Am I happy to be transformed?  Absolutely!  I love this life that God has given me - ups and downs.  I love Jesus and I am happy that people that knew me back then see a new and different creature just like the Bible says they will.  

They say proof is in the pudding and I want my testimony to be proof to who I have become because of Jesus in my life.
