Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
(Romans 12:2 NLT)
Making changes in our lives or giving up old habits can be like wandering through a maze.
Today, my friend Jeanie Kelley shares about her honest struggle with giving up certain habits. She is studying with the Online Bible Study hosted by Melissa Taylor. They are discussing the book, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God: Experiencing Life in Extraordinary Ways by Lysa TerKeurst, of Proverbs 31 Ministries.
Here is the beginning of Jeanie’s post:
What I am willing to give up to say yes to God? I continue to ask myself that on a daily basis. There are a couple things I would love to give up. They will take up time and effort on my part to rid myself of them. Now, these are coming straight from the heart and they are things I would give up to say Yes.

I appreciate Jeanie’s vulnerability and honesty.
What are you willing to give up in order to say “yes” to God?
