Prepared to change? A Meditation

Good Morning!


Change is hard for everyone.  We can all get set in ‘what is comfortable’ and even in the mindset of ‘this works’.   Sometimes we need to re-evaluate our lives and our circumstances.  Are we prepared to change?  Could a change not only make for a ‘better’ future but indeed unlock a potential which at present remains untapped.

One story which shocked everyone.    A famous golfer won the Grand Master and the whole world acclaimed him.   Unexpectedly he dropped out with the explanation ‘I want to make my drive better’.

‘But it’s all working so well.. You are a champion!’

‘Success is not as important as knowing I have done the BEST the very BEST  in my whole  life of what I am capable.’

For two years no one heard anything from him.  However in the third year back he came.

He had improved his drive.  He had relaxed and invigorated his life.  He had ‘smelt the roses’ of what was most valuable with family and friends.

When he returned to golf, his drive was improved.  His life was improved. His attitude was improved. He won the Masters and remained ‘on top’ for many years.

Are you and  I PREPARED TO CHANGE? – change not for changes sake but in order that we can like the butterflies above perhaps become something more wonderful than we have ever believed possible.

PREPARED TO CHANGE.   If people of faith, there is a need to fervently pray. Does God want many of us to change so that we reach potential we have never even dreamt of.?

Something to think about!

Have a wonderful day!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
