What can we do to help GOD transform us?

KarpatchiPhoto-6038_B

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let GOD transform you into a new person by changing the way that you think.” (Romans 12:2, NLT)

I’ve never been the type to do things the way that other people or society dictates I should do them. I’ve always, much to the annoyance of some of my “Top 5″ family members (aka the village that raised me), done things exactly how my spirit said they should be done. Even to this day I continue to confuse Steadman with how I choose to do things. But at the end of the day, my methods work for me and ensure every time that I will be able to sleep at night (which is my barometer for practically everything).

The last few times that I considered this scripture, I was focused on the change that GOD wants us to allow Him to make. And now, literally as I’m writing, I realized that this scripture is also an example of how we should seek to transform ourselves. We shouldn’t be concerned with just transforming the outside or how others perceive us. We should be concerned with transforming our minds, not only because we want to do things the way GOD has taught us, but also because there must be something important about how a transformation of the mind affects the individual in comparison to a transformation of the body or actions. Even if we don’t understand it (heck, we already know that we will not always understand GOD’s methods or plans), it’s still definitely a great place to start.

So, as I move forward with my personal changes and work to achieve my goals, I’m going to remind myself of the importance of me transforming the way that I think. (I want to do my part in conjunction with the Lord.) I look forward to and I’m open to the fact that this transformation may also cause a transformation in my actions. The reality of the situation is that, even though I’ve always done things the way that works best for me, my way may not be the best, most productive, or efficient way to operate. As I am with new food and new experiences, I’m open to learning new ways of thinking. And by open I mean, I’m willing to listen to more than just the few people whose perspective I already understand.
