I had a horrible dream. Not to say I had a nightmare, or that I woke up with my heart racing. My dream was......pleasant. I felt comfortable. Upon waking I found my self thinking (not typically a normal morning activity that. it reminded me of sin and death.
So not the best dream. And not the best example of a daily routine. Routines are habits, and habits are comforting. But no matter how easy they may be, some habits need to be stopped.
.Easy right? Well, not always, but no where does it say in the Bible, "psst, hey, that thing you're doing? yeah it's impossible...so just stop." It says, Let's not grow weary in doing good for in due time we'll reap the harvest if we do not give up.
DON'T GIVE UP! Right there it tells me it's going to be rough going. I don't like it, but if I want to live, I have to change.
Yeah, that took me a while, but I got there. Get ready. Here's some deep though for ya. We have to change.............(drum roll) LIKE BUTTERFLIES! Those little suckers go from being squishy squishy lumps to majestic fluttering waifs. We go from being sinful and incomplete to sinless and holy. It isn't without it's hardships, but that's the goal. A fundamental change in the mentality of the individual.to be holy as He is holy.
