Wow, January is gone. I could not believe that yesterday was the first of February and that today is Groundhog Day!
Wow, January is gone. I could not believe that yesterday was the first of February and that today is Groundhog Day! ( ok that was a bad joke, I will not do that again.)
But really, can you believe 1/12 of 2010 is gone, and I am still writing the date as 20010. So, How are those resolutions going? Are you changing yourself? It was interesting how much I heard about casting resolutions away before they were even created back around the New Year. It seems that we are conditioned that things will stay the same. Is not expected that things can change. However, we don’t expect that with our children? We expect them to grow and mature and change, but at some point, somewhere in our life, we agree ( give up) and the expectations for change diminish.
With that mindset, it was interesting this weekend to hear one of my friends talk about some new believers, who are adults. She was expressing how awesome and inspiring it was to “watch them change and grow” right before her eyes!
Take a look at 1 Corinthians 4:16
16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
We are given a chance each day to change and grow. I think we should start to expect change – each day. Look at this verse I shared with Tennessee Jed(keep praying for him) yesterday from Galations 4:19
I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you,
Paul expected change in the Galatians. I expect to see change in Tennessee Jed, as painful as it will be. And I attempt each day to renew myself and expect some change.
How about you, Will you reset you expectations and reaffirm those resolutions. In this short month, set some attainable goal(s) and go for it. On this Groundhog Day, come out of your hole, take one look at your shadow and then change the season!
