I might always run a little late in the mornings. I might always love Whitney Houston key changes. I might always color-code my closet. I might always get annoyed when people open a new box of crackers / gallon of milk / bottle of mustard before they’ve finished the old one. I might always hate my legs. I might always be self-critical. I might always fall behind on returning phone calls. I might always be a little bit particular. I might always withdraw when I feel overwhelmed. I might always smudge my nail polish. I might always feel a tiny bit sad. I might always crave peanut M&M’s. I might always be afraid of swimming. I might always feel like people who drive stick shifts are superior. I might always hate the summertime. I might always be tempted to roll my eyes at girls who I am actually envious of. I might always be tempted to roll my eyes at guys who actually have hurt me. I might always wonder a little bit. I might always worry a little bit.

These things may never change.

And it’s okay.

And those things about you that have been there from the beginning – the things that you are continually calling into question – the things that you feel like you should change and you’re wondering why you can’t? They might never change either.

And that’s okay, too.

    Graham Cooke once quoted a song (although I haven’t heard it) that says, “God’s sees you in the future, and you look much better than you look right now.” If God can’t fail and He wants me to be more like Him, to be made daily into His image, I know He’ll succeed. In the meantime, I’m okay with what He’s done in me so far.

    Thanks. I need this reminder often.

    People who srive stick shifts ARE superior. Drivers that is.

  6. Tad on March 4, 2009 at 1:49 PM

    Drive, not srive.

    I don’t like asparagus. I wear my watch on the “wrong” hand. I don’t like riding a bike. I’m a terrible housekeeper. I think math is cool…maybe I should blog my own list.
