Asking for Spiritual Help
Left to ourselves, we can make a mess of things in the spiritual realm and in our worldly lives. Conversion is a matter of personal change, but it is also a matter of asking the Lord what changes he wants and how to achieve them. Conversion is also a matter of letting God make the changes he wants and us accepting them with a joyful heart, no matter how difficult or upsetting those changes may be. We have to remember that we don't come close to God because we will it but because we let God draw us to him by whatever means he wishes. We give God permission to do what he wants with our lives.
