All things change.

Today I was in a strange mood.
I was thinking about me, and life. Can't seem to do anything right. I guess this is why teenagers should be adaptable; not overconfident. Cause eventually the walls you've created for yourself are going to turn against you, and you'll find yourself the worse off for them because they actually start holding you back. It's funny how good intentions can decay.
Hey, but we've got the Lord. All things change but Jesus never.
I remember at my first Jett camp, Oli was giving us Jetts a class on that exact theme, and he was like, "Wow, that's always spoken to me, that one quote. That's something that I constantly find myself holding onto! Who else is like that?" And nobody raised their hand. I remember laughing because it was so funny...like he was alone in his own little problem.
I realized that he expected too much of us. We Jetts hadn't changed yet, we were still little happy kids. Things change eventually. Life gets tumultuous and we find ourselves faced with the options of learning from our mistakes, or reasoning with the same adolescent logic...
We often find ourselves making the wrong choices.
I know I've made lots.
And I know from here on in I'll make a lot more. Lord help me to be adaptable. Lord help me to learn. Lord help me to be weak.

Husband? Was *that* ur secret, Flo? Dear, oh, dear! ;)

But seriously, about the original post, I hv to tell u I feel the same way. You know that vision of the spirit helper, Change? That's me in the 1st class of ppl by default. Not that I'm overconfident, but I find it extremely hard to adapt.

Thank God for the art of dependence & the weapon of praise -- so often, I need those just to get me receptive to Change in the 1st place!

Yeah.
Well, I don't find change hard, as far as physical circumstances go.
I just can't find the line between what matters and what doesn't as far as what people say...and what should influence you to change and what you should ignore.
I guess it all comes down to asking the Lord about everything, ay?
