I so love me a good tan!! Unfortunately, I don’t have one yet!! The good news is I started my tanning this morning, so soon there will be no more pastiness and when we go to the beach this summer, no one will be wearing their shades because of me!!
This morning I was enjoying my tanning time with a little extra one-on-one with Jesus, that’s always good. As I lay there, I started thinking about chameleons, (I know, weird) I pray I’m not one!! You know how you can go to the zoo and look in the chameleon cages and it takes a while of looking real close to see them. Sometimes they look like the tree branch they are on, and sometimes they look like the green leaves they are on. It is so weird how they change and blend into whatever atmosphere they are in. Do I do that? Oh my, I hope not!! I got to thinking, when people look at me, do they see something different, or do I blend into the world, do they see just another believer, or do they see Jesus through me? It never ceases to amaze me how the Lord nudges us to clean up little areas we didn’t even know needed to be cleaned.
My husband and I try hard to keep our family from conforming to this world. We are very picky as to what we fill our lives and our kids lives with but are we just as deliberate in showing the world what different looks like? Do we go out of our way to always show Jesus to others, or do we blend in and only do what is comfortable? Thank you Jesus for bringing this to my attention, I don’t really like chameleons!!
What are you?
Do not conform any longer 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
Believing your day is as beautiful as mine!!
Counting it all Joy!!
