Grab the word prompt, think on it as you will, but remember... you only get to write for FIVE minutes! And don’t forget to visit the blog of the person who linked up before you to leave some comment love.
All righty, whenever you’re ready, set your timer (or watch the time on your computer screen) and set to writing....
GO (then come back here and tell me so I can encourage you too!). :)
What does Change mean?
Dictionary.com tells me as a verb change means
"to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone:"
To change is to be different, to not be as you were before.
Change to a Christian often comes in the form of repentance, a turning from what you are, to what you would to be, what God would you to be.
My son is in the process of learning the saying "sorry" is not enough. The Sorry needs to be followed up by a change of being, a change of doing.
So instead of saying "sorry" for not helping and just continuing along his way, he is starting to willingly help... often times without being asked.
So change is happening in my boy. He's learning a new way of being.
But change can be hard. I'm a person who can live in my head, in my own thoughts all the day long and barely take in the world around me. God called me out of that almost.. oh... Dare I date myself? Ah sure.. more than 35 years ago. I was an angry young teen and I didn't want to deal with the world and God said STOP, come out. Listen and learn and feel and touch and be more.
And it's HARD. It's not as hard as it was.. I have a hubby who loves me so dearly I can't fathom it. I have a son who thinks the world revolves around me (for those moments that it's not revolving around him).
But that is good. It's hard, but it's good to be continually called to live here. To live now. To be the encouraging, people watcher that I know I can be. :) I can be what God would me to be.
And you know what... SO CAN YOU. What is does God would you to be??
