Things I don't do anymore

1. Chew on straws
2. Run with scissors in my hand
3. Say "what's good for the goose is good for the gambler."
4. Stutter....unless I am really excited
5. Wear my hat backwards
6. Spend bill money on vacations
7. Slam doors when I get mad
8. Answer the phone by saying "chello"
9. Eat produce (grapes, green beans ect.) before buying it at the grocery store
10. Dread getting up in the mornings

When we look back to our yesterday, or last year, it can seem like we haven't made any progress in our spiritual walk. Just as we wouldn't put our hand on a hot stove right now, there are spiritual applications in play in our life, that come just as natural. Just because you don't see huge daily changes does not mean that change isn't happening. Maturing in Him (and in the natural) happens in the small things in life. They all add up to make a huge difference in our lives.

Be encouraged. You are maturing in ways that you don't even know it.

2 Corinthians 5:17

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
