Resolution or Revolution

At True Love Waits our goal is to connect you with God’s plan for absolute purity. We’ve defined for you two ideas that we want you to consider both beginning with the letter “R” which may bring the beautiful change that you’re longing for.

RESOLUTION can be a decision to pursue positive habits or flee negative thoughts. It can be resolve to let go of the past. Sometimes, not necessarily forgetting everything because there are some pieces of the past that reminds us not to repeat it.  Have you ever made a resolution? Perhaps this is the time.

REVOLUTION has multiple meanings, but in the context of facing something new, our revolution is not war but it is actually love and you can find it hidden in the word rEVOLution. This Love Revolution begins with a decision to let God connect you with his power so that you can move on, even if it’s painful because you know something has to change. It may be your plans, dreams and wants. A love revolution will trim down your life to its simplest state—so you can clearly see how beautiful your life is because it is given by and given for something more.

True Life is not only about career, lifestyle, achievements, travel goals or the lack of all these things.

Someone Perfect and Holy breathed life into you, cleansed you from sin, and gave you a life that doesn’t end when you’ve accomplished all of your resolutions. God’s revolution is believing that you need JESUS–the Perfect and Holy ONE–in your life. A revolution is not you changing yourself. But Him changing you from the inside out. God’s word tells us that anyone that is in Christ, is a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17)


RESOLUTIONJust You + what you want = new life = a heart that is not satisfied

REVOLUTION: Christ + You = a new heart = new life = contentment = eternal life

Now, where would you start your change?

In you and your resolution or in Christ and His rEVOLution?
