Life Transformation

God is continually changing our lives and it’s not just in the means of changing a piece of clothing or your favourite song or group.

Transformation – the act or an instance of transforming; the state of being transformed. 2.  A change of form at metamorphosis, esp. of insects, amphibian etc.  3. The induced or spontaneous change of one element into another.

My transformation has been coming on for years and it has not stopped yet. It will continue till the day that I die. But what’s great is that God hasn’t given up on me when I fall back to the person I was before. He just holds out His hand and draws me back to the fold.  Which never ceases to amaze me, for I don’t have anything to offer in return.  Other than to bring Him all the glory, honour and praise. 

As a caterpillar builds itself a cocoon.  The caterpillar doesn’t have much to offer and doesn’t look like much but once it has stayed in that cocoon for the right amount of time, then and only then will it come out as a beautiful butterfly. It’s still the same worm but in a different form. And that is what happens when God transforms our lives.  We are still the same people but we grow in character, integrity and in our person. We are then in the process of becoming the people God has created us to be. Our lives being transformed by the Creator of the Universe is not an easy thing for we will continually have to lay down what we think is right or how we feel that people and God owes us. But in reality we owe Him our very lives. For without Him we would cease to exist.  And yet, He loves us unconditionally. I don’t always understand this but am truly greatful to serve a God who will continue to seek me regardless of how I behave.
