Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:
            This was written in the gym on an elliptical machine, listening to Joyce Meyer's message after she said “There's gotta be some changes.  Mostly what you need to change is your attitude.”  I wrote in the margin,  “I think Psalm 107 fits..... complaining.”
             The music came from just playing around making up power-piano exercises for fun that same day.  I started thinking,  "hey that fits today's gym song!"   Another of God's Creative inspirings....

Dedicated to LORD Jesus  25 August 2012

There's gotta be some changes
    so I can be happy
There's gotta be some changes  --- 

       so I'll have JOY and Peace.
I gotta CHOOSE the way I see ----   stop thinking selfishly,
        Have the mind of CHRIST....
Ephesians 4 describes the   way God says to be --- 

              with His HELP!                    
    (with His help)  ---  “God, HELP!”         (God help!)

There's gotta be some changes
    and they must start with ME.
'Cause I can NOT change people --- or God, definitely!
I must DECIDE to change my attitude
    stop thinking selfishly

        Have the mind of CHRIST....
Ephesians 4 describes the   way God says to be --- with His HELP!
    (with His help)  ---  “God, HELP!”         (God help!)

There's gotta be some changes
    for us to have God's  PEACE.
God calls us to think like HIM -- patient and lovingly!

We all CAN CHOOSE the way we trust God  

           in all things and
    CHOOSE if we'll       
        Have the mind of CHRIST....                                   

Ephesians 4 describes the   way God says to be --- with His HELP!
    (with His help)  ---  “God, HELP!”         (God help!)

SPOKEN:   From Galatians 5:17.  
        “The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. 

        These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions... “   
                                                  -- Galatians 5:17 (one verse), New Living Translation ....
The HOLY SPIRIT is our  Changer. 
  See verses 19 to the  end for the changes..

PRAYER-   “God, HELP!”    LORD,  I truly pray this.  I've failed so many times... THANK YOU that You do not abandon me.  I pray You will help me SEE that You indeed help when I ask and truly seek to change my attitude,  my mind to be like Christ's.     
Philippians 2:5.     First Peter 4: 1. 

Ephesians 4:      4, 14, 20-32     
New American Standard Bible (NASB)  - Unity of the Spirit
4b ... walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, 3 being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace...

14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ... 20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. 26 Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity. 28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need. 29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.

30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
