Five Minute Friday

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.

The beauties my boys wear everyday. I love seeing them in different colors.

    What a great analogy! It’s not one I want to dwell on, but still really good. 🙂 (Hopping over from FMF)

  2. What a cute post. So true! Great correlation to the word. Yep. He brings the change, it’s our job to accept it.

    Enjoyed your comparison. And how often we wriggle to show our displeasure at the change that has been brought into our life – just like your son who does not want a new diaper on.

  4. Ain’t that the truth! In from Lisa Jo’s
