Today, I am writing for yesterday – I helped my best friend finish stuff up for her family’s move to southern California, and I was not able to write. It is a good thing we had a lot to do, because emotionally, I would have been a mess.
I have always said “I love change” and really after this (almost) year-long walk in gratitude, I believe I am really afraid of “being stuck”.
And, this kind of change I am not use to. I know God has a plan; and typically, I love to move furniture, change my hair, buy new clothes – fresh start, but is that really what that is? As I drove home last night after helping Dana, I thought about change – and really it is not change that I desire, it is transformation.
As I transform, as God transforms my life, I am aware that as I allow this, and embrace it, getting stuck is much more difficult.
So today I am grateful for transformation, for a changing view and that God has it all under control. Father I pray that I not “get stuck”, that I look to You for the changes needed so that trued transformation can occur.
“But our citenship is in heaven. and we eagerly await a savior from there, The Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body." ~Philipians 3:20-21 (NIV)
