Daily Devotional – 8/18/15 “Be careful how you change!”

As I start, again, on this journey to be healthier; I can never see the change in my body when I begin to lose weight yet people can. Yea, I can notice the change in my clothes but when I look in the mirror, I still see me. And as I sat at my computer this morning contemplating what to blog about, it became apparent that sometimes when we make a change in our lives, we don’t necessarily see it right away … but people do. Now, please understand, this change can be good or bad; right or wrong. This change can also be one that we feel is right, at the time but it don’t necessarily mean that it is. Nevertheless, when a change is made, you don’t always see the change in you that others do. People say, you sure have changed and you’re thinking, no I haven’t. Or if the change was intentional, then you welcome the comment. However, what I need you to get out of this blog today is this – Be careful how you change because it reflects on the outside of you. Let me show you what I mean.

When you feel good on the inside, it reflects on the outside and you don’t even have to open your mouth. When you change your thought process from negative to positive, people notice and you won’t have to tell them a thing. When you go from being the class clown to now being about your business, people notice. You may not think there is a big change evident by the way you walk but there is. There’s even a glow about you because now your light is shining a little brighter. There’s even a quicker pep in your step because you heard your destiny calling and you’ve got to get to it. Oh but get this, when your attitude, on the inside is rude; it shows too. What? You didn’t think people could notice the fact your face is tore up because you didn’t sleep well last night? You don’t think we can see that you’re mad because your boo didn’t post you as his woman crush Wednesday or her man crush Monday? You don’t think people can notice your attitude when things don’t go your way or the fact that you think the world should revolve around you? Are you still wondering why people don’t want to hang out with you anymore? It may that attitude you rock. And please know this, not everybody who corrects you is your haters! They are simply trying to stop you from wrecking yourself before it’s too late. This is why you have to be careful how you change because it reflects on the outside of you. What’s on the inside shows on the outside.
