      "For God is at work within you, helping you want to obey Him. And then helping you do what He wants." Philippians 2:13

      The day I found this promise in the Bible I was very excited. I was beginning to understand that I didn't have to change myself. God would change me and this verse confirmed it. He would even help me want to change. Being a determined person, I could be a problem if Christ wasn't in control of my life, but God would work in me to change me. What freedom that spiritual principle brought to my life.

      The Holy Spirit was beginning to convict me about being grumpy in the morning. For years I had rationalized that I was just born that way. I had inherited this temperament from my father and grandmother. I wasn't a morning person. I didn't want to speak to anyone until after 10:00 am and preferred that no one spoke to me.

      The Holy Spirit showed me that His power was not limited to after 10:00 in the morning, and that I was having a negative influence on our four school-aged children and Marvin every morning. So I claimed the promise in Philippians 2:23 and prayed something like this; "God you are the God of flesh. All things are possible with You. Please change me into a cheerful person in the morning."
