Let God {Five Minute Friday: Change}

I have heard, and I know you had too, so many times this cliche spoken:  "The only constant in this world is change."

The way that Octavia E. Butler puts it is amazing.

Octavia E. Butler
“All that you touch
You Change.

All that you Change
Changes you.

The only lasting truth
is Change.

is Change.”
Octavia E. Butler

Even though most people resist changes, it is inevitable.

Being mostly a limb-sitter, or a comfort zone dweller, I do resist for a time, but when I know that it is only way God's plan works for me, I'd setter for His ways.  But not without resistance though.

The the benefits sinks in slowly and it lasts.

The change that affects everything is when one lets God freely and willingly.

And when we do, how we look at things, at people, at situations, will be seen and acted out of love.

It it like seeing through the eyes of our savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The world needs this for peace and prosperity.  

Change coming from the inside affects beautifully the outside.  So I let God.  You too, let God!

"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."
Romans 12:2 (NLT)
