How to Change a Life: Break the Cycle of Failure

So often we are concerned with changing our lives... doing something HUGE that will make our lives so much better; and with that, we enter into a never ending cycle of promises to ourselves that we never keep. 

When you're feeling low, it is exactly this cycle of failing yourself that often kicks you deeper and deeper into that pit of self loathing and despair, or the cycle of abuse (from self or other), or depression. But there is a hope, no matter how dark, deep, depraved, or broken the state of your heart and life! And the best news is that it is hope that is not dependent on your own strength, capabilities or resources (no 'now only £69.99' miracle-in-a-bottle cure). A hope that is freely available to anyone and everyone.. available to YOU, wherever and whoever you are.

Please keep reading and PLEASE watch the beautiful testimony below of a woman who lost everything, sank so low, did so many things she was not proud of, and then saw her whole life and her whole world change in one moment. The change is incredible!

It is simple. All you have to do is admit that you are incapable of changing your own life, confide in the one person that will never let you down, and ask Him to forgive, restore and renew you. That man? Well, He saved my life (literally) and He wants to save yours too! 

I know it sounds cliched, but it is true. Jesus is the only way to truly save a life. He is the author of life and the giver of live. He stands in the gap for us so that everyone who believes in Him and and accepts Him as their saviour, will be exempt from dying for their own sins. 

Will you ask Him to save your life? And if He already has, will you intercede for others so that He will save their lives too?

An atheist recently said something along the lines of, "I don't believe there is a God, but if I did, I would tell everyone. If I believed in eternal life vs eternal damnation, I would tell everyone just like I would tell you if I saw a truck coming towards you, about to hit you (even if you believe that it wasn't). I mean, how much do you have to HATE someone not to tell them, if that is what you truly believe??" - that really hit me hard and stayed with me!

Please watch this moving testimony of how God can really save/change your life, giving hope where there previously was none:
