Change begins on the inside

I cannot get the text here to go left for some reason so here goes with it centered!

I am realizing deep inner change. Sometimes it's as simple as picking up a penny like in yesterdays post and other times it's surprising. I have for years been an avid watcher of certain TV shows. I have always watched and never missed an episode of Private Practice, Desperate Housewives, Greys Anatomy ect.

I've realized in the last few weeks however that something is changing inside me. I do not enjoy my favorite shows anymore. It started off with small things in the story line and has gotten to the point where I pretty much don't even watch them anymore. I was angry at one of the characters for what they were doing (that I felt was wrong) but it was something they do all the time. Bed hopping basically. I never thought much about it. But the circumstances this time bothered me. Made me angry at the character and the show. So, I think I'm going to have to find some new shows to watch! lol

I'm posting about it because I think it's really neat to see or recognize change when it's happening. This is a big change for me and it's on the inside. I was not "trying" to make this change happen. It is a direct result of the other changes in my life and just happened on it's own (or should I say with the help of the Holy Spirit!)

I'm excited to see what else is to come!

God calls us closer everyday. What was okay to us in one point of our life is no longer okay because he calls us to go deeper. He awakens in us what was always there, like the butterfly that emerges from a cocoon.

May He continue to be with you on your journey.

God bless

Same thing happened to me years ago!
I can barely stand most anything on tv now...I got to the point and esp. since I had kids growing up and thinking..if I cannot watch something with them without it making me feel uneasy or that they might say..if you don't believe this is okay..then why would you watch it mom..well, I knew I would not have a good answer for such things. Also, after I changed certain parts of myself with God's help of grace, I didn't want to see anything that reminded me of things I came close to doing or would have gotten more into doing if I had not fallen in love with Jesus and my Catholic Faith. Anyways...good post...there is so much more out there to feed us. :) Love ya!
