Change

Over the past few days, I have laughed at the number of people that are complaining about the Time Change. It happens twice a year. Personally, I like having more daylight time in the evening to go outside and play with the girls, cookout, do yarkwork, etc. I know that it takes some getting used to, but to me the benefit outweighs the initial frustration.

Just so you know, I'm not immune to resisting change. This week, the Newsboys announced that Michael Tait of DC Talk fame would be replacing Peter Furler as the Lead Singer of the Newsboys. Furler would still sing on the studio albums, but Tait will be the touring vocalist. Now, I like Michael Tait. I'm a huge DC Talk fan. However, I personally think an American singing lead in the Newsboys destroys the Aussie Mystique that they have been known for. To me, it's the beginning of the end for the Newsboys. (Note: See Petra as an example....when Bob Hartman quit touring, then Petra's days were numbered)

The point is...we all resist change. We do not like change. Abraham had to change locations. Noah had to change his accomadations (and build it too). Paul had to change his beliefs and his name. The list could go on and on. God requires us to change. Romans 12:2 tells us that we will be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Transformation is change.

What is God asking you to change?

Great Blog! I like the time change for some of the same reasons you listed. However, my body is not liking it this week! It usually takes me a week or show.

I was trying to say before it cut me off, that it takes my body a week or so to adjust. :)

I think the Newsboys days were numbered before that change...
