Day 10: Leaving Familiar


Tomorrow will be different

because the sun will set later

as we SPRING FORWARD.

An hour lost, yet so much more gained.

A much welcomed CHANGE,

if you like CHANGE.

But doesn't it take CHANGE for CHANGE?

To LEAVE what is FAMILIAR

that takes you to an UNFAMILIAR

that will become a NEW FAMILIAR,

that begins with your

LEAVING FAMILIAR

behind.

FAMILIAR~

what you do because that is what you do,

yet it only is hurting you more than helping you.

FAMILIAR~

thinking what you think

because that is what you are thinking,

yet it keeps you stuck in the same place

FAMILIAR~

doing nothing

because you don't believe that anything will ever change,

so you just do nothing.

What if the caterpillar was way too comfortable being a caterpillar

and didn't believe it could be anything more than a caterpillar,

so it chose not to spin a cocoon?

Where would the butterfly be?

Why spend your life crawling

when you were created to fly?

LEAVING FAMILIAR~

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing!" (Isaiah 43:18-19)

LEAVING FAMILIAR~

"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which

GOD has called me heavenward in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 3:14).

LEAVING FAMILIAR~

"For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with CHRIST in GOD" (Colossians 3:3)

So what if the caterpillar never spun a cocoon,

would it become who it was created to be?

"Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Are you ready to LEAVE FAMILIAR?

Let's lose another pound by

FASTING from

THE FAMILIAR that is keeping you from flying.

Every time you want to

do what you do

or think what you think

or just do the nothing

that keeps you stuck

take that step into

THE UNFAMILIAR

that is LIFE CHANGING

because you were

"MADE TO FLY" ( listen to the song below)
