It’s how I started blogging. “beth, please change” was my first blog title. It was really Bret leaving me a message to change the title of the blog he set up for me. But I liked it. It seemed to me the very words I hear God telling me. Change.
So rather than change the title, I left it. So I could remember how important it was to keep growing and changing.
Romans 12:2- Don’t be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Changing a mind is a hard thing to do.
We are so afraid of change and the unknown. So afraid, in fact, that we fail to even make effort to implement changes we really want to make, much less uncomfortable ones!
Which leads me to…
Comfort. Why are we (I) always looking for comfortable settings? Comfort is anti-adventure. Jesus was pretty clear about comfort. He didn’t have it, or look for it. I don’t think you can change the world (for the better, of course) from your lazyboy or comfy couch. Well, I don’t know that I can do that. (I suppose there may be some writers that are capable – but still they have to be out and about to gain the experience they write about. So I will stick with my lazyboy assumption.)
I want to change the world. The world around me anyway…
So, I guess it’s change, adventure and anti-comfort.
