Guest Post:: Life Remodel, Teen Edition

Today's guest post is from Hannah. I thought it would be nice to have a teen view of the Life Remodel Challenge. Head over to her site afterwards and give her some encouragement!

A life remodel is a scary thing. If you have ever remodeled a house or even painted a room of your house you will know what I mean. Before you may be like, “Well, it doesn’t look half bad… Maybe I’ll just leave it like it is. Yeah.” That’s what it is like for my life and me. Eventually, though, I think we all get tired of the same old “look”. Our lives are like that house.

I have truly been convicted that I need to do a life remodel. I don’t want to be comfortable with my life. I don’t want it to be like it is. The fact is that I have been too lazy to even try and do it. I’m afraid. I’m afraid I won’t like it. But you know what, it’s not about me. It’s about God and what He wants for me and what He thinks is best. That’s all that matters.

I have been convicted to eat better, to get up earlier, to spend more time conversing with God spending more time in His Word, and just really do a total revamp. I’m unsure of things and where to start, but I really need to do this. That’s the long and short of it.

I have a lot of remodeling to do. I had better quit stalling. This is for real. I have been putting this off and battling it for a while and it needs to happen. I can feel it.
