Bittersweet but blessed.
Our youngest daughter, Hope, is starting her freshman year at Hope College and will write the next chapter of her life by making more of her own choices and decisions – something parents are to prepare their children to do (knowing that doesn’t make it any easier on moms!).
We know that she will not return home as the same young lady that graduated high school. She will be different. She will have made different friends and studied under different teachers.
She will be changed.
In life, change is inevitable – how we are changed is our own choice.
Each birthday reminds me that I am one year older. That’s inevitable. How I choose to eat, think, and exercise will determine the quality of my life. That’s my choice.
The gospel is all about God’s power to transform our lives through the finished work of Jesus on the cross. The fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) is the beautiful expression of this transformation.
- Will I choose to allow the Holy Spirit to renew my thinking?
- Will I choose to be intentional about how I spend my time?
- Will I choose to meditate on God’s Word?
These are the choices I must make on a daily basis in order to partner with God, allowing and enabling him to work godly transformation in my life.
Change is inevitable — it’s going to happen one way or the other, for better or worse.
I highly recommend choosing better!
