The Art of Change: Introduction

Sunday, October 1, 2017



Change.
To make or become different.
The act or instance of making or becoming different.

The Write 31 Days Challenge was something amazing I participating in last year writing about and intentional and authentic approach to doing life. Last year, joining the project was such a spur of the moment idea. This year is different. I have evaluated. Prayed. Sat with pen and paper. Coming up with one thing that God laid on my heart. 

The Art of Change. (link to see this months posts)
A journey. A process. Wandering.
Hurting and healing. 
Grace. 
Mindfulness. 
Simplicity. 
Gratitude. 

These lessons are my thoughts on where I have journeyed and wandered over the course of the last 10 months. It is the bits and pieces of change that God has brought me through, taught me in, refining me deeply. 

Change allows us to grow, develop, process and find something different in ourselves that we did not know was there. Waiting and wanting to be seen. Known. Heard. It is there so that we can share it with others, walk well alongside someone else. It is there to protect us from what we do not know and may not see we actually need. It shows us how things have the capability to be different. It directs us in ways that we may or may not comprehend because we do not see what God is doing.

Change is beautiful.
It is hard.
It heals brokenness.
It transforms.
It illuminates grace.
It pushes simplicity.
It gives gratitude.
It forces reflection.

For the next 31 days I ask that you come back. Come back and see what change gracious does in our lives. Be it painful or not. CS Lewis says, "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." It is a journey. We walk through life making beautiful choices and decisions. While we may not always get a choice as to where we end up, we definitely get a choice as to our attitude towards that change and the outcome we allow it to have over our life.
