Change Agent

On Monday's, I load up the step ladder into the Chevy and coast on down to the church. I set the ladder up under the sign and I climb those 2 steps to take down last weeks words. I then go into the building and write down what this weeks words are going to be. If I don't write it down, I will forget an 'A' or add an 'E' to some poor word that doesn't need it. A few weeks ago I tried to spell 'Holy' without the "O".

This sign thing for me is about making people think. It would be great if the words for the week would bring people into the church to see what the heck is going on, but I will start with hoping they read it and then maybe they will think on it. Preacher man says it needs to be short and to the point. I believe this is because people are driving at 45 MPH as they pass it so we don't want to make problems on Highway 107!

I really do want to make people think and it would be nice if they would think differently for a change. I don't want them thinking like me, cuz then I would have to change the way I think to be different from them. If we would just start to think instead of putting it on auto pilot there is no telling what would happen. 

I'm about change, there I said it. Change is hard, but change is needed in our lives. God takes us just as we are, but friends, He won't leaves us that way! So God is about change too. I see myself as God's Change Agent! We are the ones that say but we've always done it that way! That would be because you are stuck! God never said Sit here and don't change a thing! Hold onto the status quo and just coast! Have you ever noticed that we don't pray about keeping things the same, we pray about how to change. Oh God, Please keep everything just like it is cuz we are so comfortable this way! I have never prayed that way...ever!!

But it's scary, and what if we fail? If you think about it, 9 times out of 10, things never turn out the way we think or hope they will anyway. Is that failing? Not in my book and I don't think it is in God's book either. I really believe that he's happy that we tried something so that He could be involved in our lives! 

This weeks sign is about salt. Salt is a spice and without it food tastes flat. I love me some salt! Spices change the way our food tastes... Do you have the right spice in your life?

Hi Kimberly,
Thanks for reassuring me that God wants me to change and is there overseeing the process. Two lessons I am presently trying to learn is to have more trust and less fear in life.
Again thank you for your insight.
God Bless You,
