Better - Five Minute Friday

I'm joining up at Five Minute Friday over at Heading Home. Each week she shares a prompt, and you write on that prompt for 5 minutes. This week's prompt is "better."


Better - When January rolls around every year, it seems as though everyone, including me, makes a plan, a goal, a resolution to be better. Better than what? Usually better than the year before. The problem is that it's hard to be better when the changes made in January are surface changes - no depth at all. By February (shoot, who I am kidding, by mid-January), those changes to make us (me) better have fallen by the wayside, forgotten, abandoned.

This year, I finally realized that change - REAL change - isn't something that I can do on my own. Only through a reliance on the Holy Spirit is any lasting change going to take place. So my goal to be "better" should really be a goal to be more dependent - leaning on the Holy Spirit and not myself.
