If you were to search for the definition of “creature of habit”, this is who you would find. Rupert, our Lhasa Apso. He does the same thing every day. He sleeps on the same chair. He waits by the door beginning at 4:45 for Brian. He only eats Burger King cheeseburgers, not McD’s. I can’t believe I just admitted that.

Change is hard for me too, under most circumstances. However, making changes based on what I believe to be true is not as difficult. Painful, yes. But not difficult.

I spent the first 27 years of my life stumbling around, searching for something or someone to fill the divine gap in my soul. When I became a Christ-follower and saw the transforming power of the risen Christ in my daily life, I was no longer satisfied in letting my days simply “go by.” I long for every day of my life to be a living “thank you” letter to Jesus Christ. I don’t have the desire or the time to play guessing games when it comes to the use of my time, energy or resources.

So, yes. I am a creature of habit in many senses of the word. Probably too many (just ask Brian!), but not in those areas I treasure most.
