A certain Army Colonel had been a heavy drinker for 35 years. For all those years he had been angry – angry at everyone and everything. Finally, he encountered Christ and his whole life changed.
He was speaking once before a group of medical people. He told them of his personality change, how he was now sober as he once had been drunk; considerate as he once had been severe; concerned for others as once he had been selfish and self-serving.
A psychiatrist, who believed that personalities are so firmly set in early life that no one can change, protested to the Colonel that at his age a person could not have such a radical transformation.
“Well,” replied the Colonel, “that may be true. But I am under new management now – I answer to another authority – the highest and truest authority that there is.”

What authority do YOU answer to? How often is it a Higher Authority?
IT IS NOT GREAT MEN AND WOMEN WHO CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT WEAK MEN AND WOMEN IN THE HANDS OF A GREAT GOD!
