Five Minute Friday: Change

 

Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::

Change…

Change is such a beautiful thing.  Change makes us more like Him.  Because of His Spirit working in and through us all the time we are changed like the caterpillar changes into the butterfly.  How grateful I am that He changes me.

I am so grateful that I am not responsible to change myself.  I am so grateful that He taught me that He is the one who changes me not myself.  He know what needs to happen and when it needs to happen.  I don’t have to know what the next steps are or what layer needs to be removed next.  He handles all the details.  When I do think I know what needs to happen, He usually shows me that I have things a little out of order or am trying to rush things that He has a special timing for.

I didn’t used to think change was beautiful.  I certainly didn’t embrace it.  I wanted everything to go along in a prescribed and predictable order.  I wanted things to be black and white.  I didn’t want to take chances or let new people or experiences in.  Change was scary and uncontrolled.

Then He came and showed me that change was good and beautiful.  If I surrendered to Him,  I could trust Him.  I didn’t have to be in control, or right or even know what needs to happen next.  I can trust Him to change what needs to be changed when it needs to be changed and to carry me through by His grace to a better place.

Change, is His vehicle to make me more like Himself.

    Your words,’When I do think I know what needs to happen, He usually shows me that I have things a little out of order’ is so true. Funny how we want to control everything, even with God. *sigh*
    I like your last words, change is His vehicle to make me more like Himself.
    Thanks for the five minute inspiration! 🙂
