God Uses Change to Change Us

Page 1

Leadership Network's Turning Points online experience includes 32 brilliant women sharing their stories of success and moments of failure as they faced the turning points in their own lives.  In this 6-minute video from the 2011 Turning Points experience, Elisa Morgan, President Emerita of MOPS and author of She Did What She Could, talks about her own experience in how God used change to change her.

As you watch this video, take notes and write down thoughts about how this session can impact the way you lead.  

Elisa used 1 Peter 4:12-19 to illustrate her personal experience with change. Take a moment to read that passage again.
  1. God uses change to change us.
  2. God is in the change.
  3. God will bring us through change.

Thinking back on the many examples that Elisa gave from her own work and family experience, what scary or difficult changes are you facing and you are wondering if you "have enough C to get from Point A to Point B?"

Comment: Elisa gave a cycle to healthy change:
  • Healthy things grow.
  • Growing things change.
  • Changing things challenge us.
  • Challenge forces us to trust God.
  • Trust leads to obedience.
  • Obedience makes us healthy.
  • Healthy things grow. 

Where are you in this cycle? How can you see God bringing you through your change?

When we allow God to re-shape us and re-arrange us in our change, he will take us throughout the change to allow us to be agents to change the world.
