"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

Accept and Launch

For the last year or so that I've been working with my current employer, I have been using a particular program that daily asks me if I want to upgrade the version I have. Actually, it is more than daily because it is every time I log-in. My options: Accept and Launch...Make Changes Later...or Exit. So, for the last two hundred or so log-ins, I've been selecting "Make Changes Later"...

Change is inevitable...

Since it is our call as believers to become more like Christ daily, there are daily changes that will need to be accepted. The Bible urges us consistently to put off the old nature and put on the new...to exchange sinful behaviors for godly behaviors....to daily renew our minds in order to think God's thoughts...

Could we be postponing a fantastic upgrade by selecting to make changes later?
