This tree is one near our home that I watch transform each Autumn into a beautiful orange site. During the other times of the year, it just blends in does not attract any attention. Then the weather starts to cool off and suddenly I start noticing a difference in this one tree. It stands out in a wonderful display of beauty. I want to be like this tree. I don't want to just blend into the world. I want to be transformed. The Bible tells us that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I am thrilled to know that God can transform me. I do not always like the process, but in the end, I will be a standout for Him.
