“Why can’t I change?”+ LINKUP

 

Help! I Want to Change - "Why can't I change? Have you ever asked this? Maybe you want more discipline in your eating habits. Or perhaps you struggle to keep your spending under control or maintain daily Bible reading and prayer. Change is hard, and our attempts often result in failure."Welcome to Mondays @ Soul Survival. Each week I feature a book (or in this case a booklet) that I consider a valuable resource. This week’s selection is HELP! I want to Change by Jim Newheiser.

 

“Why can’t I change? Have you ever asked this? Maybe you want more discipline in your eating habits. Or perhaps you struggle to keep your spending under control or maintain daily Bible reading and prayer. Change is hard, and our attempts often result in failure.”

So begins the description of this powerful little booklet by Jim Newheiser. Pastor Newheiser has been a biblical counselor for over twenty years. He’s a fellow with ACBC (the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors), a pastor at Grace Bible Church in Escondido, California and the director of IBCD (the Institute for Biblecal Counseling & Discipleship). He knows how hard change can be. 

“This booklet explains that it is the gospel – what God has done for us – that is the key to change and that empowers us to make changes that will please God.”

In 59 pages Jim explains the unbiblical methods we use that lead to failure, how the gospel is the key to change, and what our responsibility is in this process. If you have tried over and over again to change in some area of your life, this little booklet will offer hope and help.

Blessings,
Donna

  1. Donna,

    I actually spoke these very words to myself yesterday after our Pastor’s powerful sermon. “Why can’t I change?!”

    Thank you so much for sharing about this booklet. I will definitely be checking it out.

    🙂

    • Karen, I’m sure it would be a blessing. The last time I checked it was available on Kindle, too, if you prefer reading electronically. I love ordering on Kindle … instant gratification! LOL

  2. Love the message behind this book, Donna! “The key to change” can definitely be found in the Bible. So glad to see you link up with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope to see you link up again this week 🙂

  3. This is such a powerful truth you’ve shared here: “It is the gospel – what God has done for us – that is the key to change and that empowers us to make changes that will please God.” Thanks for sharing this post at Lifelong Learners Link-up Party at DesperateHomeschoolers.com!
    Tina

  4. Have you ever read the book “How People Change” by Paul Tripp? That has been a wonderful resource for me in seeing how the Gospel really changes people’s lives. Thanks for sharing a condensed version of those principles, too. 🙂
