A surprising complement

A friend told me tonight that I “let God beat the crap out of me.” It was a complement that comes out of being with me as God did some of the beating. That sentence sounds funny…

but the fact is that I am so eternally grateful that God has pushed me out of my comfort zone and showed me the areas in my life that needed to change. The changing process has been hard and painful at times, but so worth it. Crap (pardon the crudeness) is exactly what some of my attitudes and ideas were.

Now, my prayer is that I would be open as God keeps changing me and that I would not return to wrong ideas. Maybe that will take as much grace as the beginning of the change.
