Ready. Set. Engage...
Do you go with the flow?

I get bored easily.  I despise traffic.  I procrastinate on a lot of things that I could
easily do now.  I work out daily at the gym but often look for the closest parking place.  I complain a lot.  I can zone out in front of a television.  I talk on my phone and have no idea how I got from point A to point B.  Why have 1 when I can have 2?

Do I conform?  ”Do not conform to the pattern of this world…”

I am an inquisitive person.  I like learning new things simply for the sake of learning.  I love learning new things so I can try them myself.  I have a line item in my monthly budget for books.  It’s bigger than my entertainment budget which includes cable tv and Internet.  I often catch the sunset on purpose.  I paint.  I love to play catch and do anything outdoors.  I talk to strangers.  I travel whenever I can.

Am I different?  "be transformed by the renewing of your mind."

I’m pretty sure that in life, going with the flow is missing the mark.  Realizing that today, like every day, I have a choice sure makes it more exciting.  

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will."  Romans 12:2
