One of my favorite things to say during difficult circumstances over the years has been “Blessed are the flexible, for they don’t get bent out of shape.” I realized however, in my witty lyrical expression there was room for growth and improvement.
While flexibility seems to be a cherished commodity these days is it really God’s best for our lives? Flexibility means you stand firmly rooted and grounded and simply flex or bend to the situation or circumstances. It means the circumstances do not move you to be different. What if, going with God meant being moved, changed, or transformed? Can you go with God and stay where you are? Perhaps you believe that you have to keep grounded, immovable, or centered in your position. A balancing must occur between who we are in our core, our beliefs, our inner person, and our willingness to change our course and direction.
