same blog, new name
Hello there, faithful few readers & those who may stumble across my scribblings!
You will probably notice that my blog name changed. Crazy, I know.
Should you come across this and WANT to get email updates (and trust me, as a mom with three kids, they are few & far between!), you can do so on the right column.
Why the name change? You know, sometimes you just know that something is right. I’ve always liked the name of my blog. I do still feel like my life is constantly changing, but for a while now I’ve struggled with the idea of it being an “evolution”. To me, “evolution” seems almost involuntary; like it’s going to change regardless of what I do or don’t do. And yes, while it is changing, I’ve come to realize how intentional I need to be about the direction it takes. I can’t just hope that I’m growing closer to God daily, I have to work at it.
Last Sunday, our pastor mentioned a verse that flew out of his mouth, and stuck straight into my soul. It was (as you may have guessed), 2 Corinthians 3:18. The full verse reads
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Later in the week I actually had some time while meditating/studying some verses in the book of James when this 2 Cor. verse became real to me.
God IS changing me! He IS transforming me into his likeness more and more daily! It’s not just a random life I’m living, hoping to be closer to him… it’s an intentional life, and he is honoring my intention, and showing the great depth of his love by transforming me into his likeness.
Crazy & powerful, yes?
And there you have it. Same blog, new name. If you go back and read from the beginning (which I, for one, would not advise!), you’ll see a dramatic change in style. Some might say it’s an evolution in style… I say it’s a demonstration of the Lord performing a miracle in my life and slowly but surely changing me to be more like Him.
