A week ago I was in a different state. Not state of mind, although that is true too, but state in this country. All the way across the country from where I live. A day of flights, layovers and missed shuttle later and I was in a hotel with over 700 women gathering for what turned out to be an amazing 3 day conference: She Speaks. There were fabulous speakers, Lysa TerKeurst, Michael Hyatt, Holley Gerth, to give you an idea, and so much learning that I am still processing it all a week later!
Which brings me to the question, How do you measure change? How do you recognize when something is different when it seems change happens subtly?
Or change may happen so slowly that you’re not sure what’s different, you just know something is.
The week before the creek was winding its way to its goal. Now it is a straighter path.
A week ago I was eager. Now I am reflective. I am full of learning and now slowly processing the impact of change.
How do you measure change? How do you know it’s happened?
Hezekiah on his sick bed cried out to God for more time on this earth; God heard and answered through the prophet Isaiah that Hezekiah would have 15 more years of life. How was that change measured? The shadow of the sun went back up the stairs 10 steps. (read the story here)
The change was measurable. It was recorded for us to read.
How are your changes measured? Through your memory only? Or do you record change for reflection, for your family, for the future generations to look back on?
How are you capturing the changes in your life?
