Holy Spirit transforms us, but we must spend time in His Word and be open to what He speaks to us, in order to become more like Him. I have put the "big" sins behind me, although they are all the same size to Him, but I keep seeing these "little" guys pop up in my life. Things like a quick judgmental thought about someone's appearance, judgments about someone's driving skills (as they pull out in front of me!), wanting only what I want ( like a procedure to be done by someone else in the same exact way I would do it), and the list goes on. Little irritants arise - personality conflicts, maybe. Nothing big. But, I think to myself and hear a quiet whisper, "Freda - that's not how I would handle that! Freda- re-think that - and imagine being in their shoes." It has truly caused me to stop and see the person I have become. And I realize that it's not all good.
So, as I type away, I know I have a long way to go to be just like Him, but I'm hoping that since I'm now aware of the little things, with His help, I can make bigger strides to become more like Him each day.
This really is an awesome adventure to be on. I just love my Savior, Jesus! To be more like Him is what I most desire. Maybe you desire the same. Let's lock arms and head down the road together - to becoming more like Him!
