DYING TO CHANGE
Yesterday, I accepted myself for who I was. Today, I am dying to change. Frustrated and disgusted by foolish desires that clouds and distorts the imaginary crystal ball of what just might be with awe of its possibilities, leads one to live a doubtful life concerning the future, because it is not what it used to be. We glance at yesterday and pronounce it history; we dream of tomorrow and call it a mystery.
We have a gift; a present in an invisible box and some open it without giving much thought, while others live with a question.
“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the greatest of them all”? It replies, “You are not, but He who was, is and will be is the greatest of them all."
You may change the mirror, but it does not change its reflection. It is the risk of change through the fear of losing familiarity and finding vulnerability that places one in an unknown territory—a place that is uncomfortable.
Change is inevitable—it happens whether you like it or not. Forcing a flower to bud may cause it to wither and die, but nurturing it allows its natural beauty to unfold.
Trying to change is more work than actually change itself, although getting use to change may be the most difficult. Nonetheless, trying on change is the challenge. It is tight in some areas and loose in others—we grow into change and to live is to grow.
Change happens! We cannot live our life and not have change anymore than we can jump up in the air without feeling the effect of gravity. Change is similar to time. We know that it exists, but we cannot hold or touch it.
Change is a force that influences our lives, observed by the trail it leaves behind. One has to believe in change, without it, that person lives with bitterness.
Change is a transformation from one form to another. Water when cooled to a freezing temperature at 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below, changes from a liquid phase to a solid phase. A seed in good soil when nourished with water and sunlight changes into a plant.
Likewise, an infant fed and nurtured grows up as an adult, but a malnourished heart is atrophy to the soul. A soul longing for something without counsel from the One Who gives it becomes tired, weak, and loses its way.
Having demanding, heart-felt claims, and requests to God does not change His Divinity, but through time, He changes us.
