No matter how much you WANT to be clean, it will never happen as long as you play in the mud. Sounds simple, but you'd be surprised how many of us expect to do or be better, but refuse to change our environment, our influences and our diets either physically or spiritually. No matter how dirty you are, if you flush yourself with enough of the clean stuff, the dirt can't stay. Habits can't stay. Unforgiveness can't stay. Sin can't stay. Influence is key. Some of our past influences were instrumental in getting us to our present, but are not enough to propel us into our future. If you want DIFFERENT, it's available. You just have to determine how you're going to handle SAME. Because, same and different don't always play well together.
