It is 5 Minute Friday! To find out more about it go here.
This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt: Change
Honestly, my first instinct was diaper changes. It may have been because I just changed the boys right before I saw the prompt. It is interesting how the boys accept their fate. There are times that I physically put Lil’ Bud on the changing table, because he denies that he needs a diaper change. Though there are times he tells me it is time. Lil’ Bit comes willingly-but does not stay willingly. Getting his diaper off is a lot of fun, getting a new one on isn’t.
I was trying to think how this would be profound to our Christian lives. When it hit me, there are times we know we are sitting in our own “stink”, but unwilling to change it. Even though we know in the long run, we are much better off with it gone. The change doesn’t hurt as much as it would if we stayed where we were. Then there are times that we willingly accept the change of the old, but fight and struggle against the new. Thankfully, God sticks through it with us and walks us along the path of the change. Some of the changes are ones that only He can bring about.
