Changed for Life

” We…are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory”

Corinthians 3:18

We all want that nice beach house on the ocean, but through change and erosion, you can see that this beach is one more storm away, from having waves crash into the beach house, as people sit and watch television in the living room. Erosion is a constant thing as we walk our paths through this journey, we may not see this erosion, simply because we are too busy out there living our lives. We all in this society have become so engulfed, with trying to be the one to bring the next big thing, that we all have lost focus on what is truly going on around us. We all want so much for that five minutes of fame, we don’t focus on who we truly are anymore, which leads us into the world of, ” I am better than you”.

We are all working so hard to buy all the material things and showing them off to all those around, that when we buy these things, we don’t really look too deep into things like erosion and the effects it will have in the future. These material things are just that and we can’t take them with us when this journey ends. So, begs the question? Then what really do these material things hold for us? I can see the short answer of having the beach house, so one can walk the beach whenever they wish, but when erosion comes into play and takes away that beach, now it becomes very hard to walk the beach, as now you need not be afraid of the ocean and become a very good swimmer, which most are not.

Erosion is a huge part of this journey, it will affect every aspect of the land around us, whether at the beach, or maybe a cabin in the woods, or even within all the houses being developed around us. A lot of these houses and as the developers don’t want us to know, as they will never sell a home? Are being built on either swampland or old landfills that have been filled in. They may think they are filling in a hole in the ground to develop some homes, but nobody thinks of the erosion that comes to us, from this planet that we walk our paths on. Climate change, global warming, are all terms that some makeup to make a profit, but these terms have always been around through the word ” Erosion”, as mother nature changes this planet, with the help of erosion.

Some may think they can change the beach with the help of some heavy equipment? What they never admit to is, you simply can not fight mother nature, nor the fury of the ocean during a raging storm. Erosion has been around since the beginning of time, then lies the problem of we the people, especially those within the walls of Washington DC, as all they want is to put more money in their pockets, leaving the ones struggling through the erosion, standing there holding the bag, as now their beautiful beach home is in jeopardy, from the power of erosion and being dismantled before their eyes.

You build a nice little cabin in the woods, with beautiful mountains all around you. As you build this cabin, all you are thinking about is, all the peace and serenity you will have away from this crazy society. Well, the one important thing that slips our mind as we build is, the exact location of the cabin, while we look up at the mountains, to determine what would erosion do, as it eats away from the mountain? Where will those boulders go as the erosion eats away at the mountain? Will this cabin slip away into the river below while the erosion eats all the tundra beneath it? These are all very good questions, but these are questions we overlook, simply because we want so bad of these things, we then look away from them, thinking…Oh!!! This will never happen to me? Yes, there may be that chance that it will never happen, but!!! We must always keep in mind the chances, so we can be better at the decisions we make, while the changes of erosion are happening all around us.

Everything that happens as we walk our paths of this journey, happens for a reason, but we never get into the reasons, because we fear more of the negative reasons, so we look away from them, then later when things start going south…we then ask ourselves why? When things around us happen, we then need to find out why did this happen, so we can truly understand better, as we then try to keep moving forward along our paths. Because we do not want to know the reasons why something happened, will have us regress and move backward, which then has us, lose faith in not just everything around us, but lose the truth of everything around us, which then leads us into the self-destruction of everything we do.

Erosion has and will always happen right before our eyes, we need to look at this as, how can I better understand this moving forward, instead of looking at it as a way to profit from it, which then has us robbing one another, of all our hard-earned work, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Everything erodes over time, even we ourselves erode over time, remember those things you once did when you were younger? Well here you are later in life and now you can not do what you once did. Erosion is a huge part of this journey through life, it is time we start looking at it, to truly understand it, so we all can be better as we walk our paths through this journey, to be true of who we are, and live our lives in the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, while he walked this journey here with us.

” Erosion has been in this journey since the beginning of time, but we still do not truly want to know and understand anything about it”

” People, land, beaches, mountains, there is nothing that erosion will not affect, we must understand it, before the erosion takes everything away”
