Transformation / Transition

Today, the church service was about "Transformation and Transition. These are two things we go through in life. We as individuals, make transformations for one age group to another.

Exp: infant, toddler, youngester, preteen, teen, young adult, adult & senior citizen.

We make transitions from elementary to middle school, to high school, to college. We make transitions in jobs and in locations. Each transformation and transition brings adjustments to change. Some adjustments come easily, while others take time.

Look at the butterfly. It wasn't always a butterfly, it went through transformation. Can you imagine if a butterfly decided to stay in the pupa stage? To go through 3 transformations, form a cocoon and decided that that was far enough in life. How tragic never to transform into what God called it to be.

Tell me, are you set in your ways, or are you willing to transform yet again into what God has called you to be, or make a transition to get to the place God's called you to?

It's given me something to really think about. What about you?
