Do Not Conform! Be Transformed!

Spiritual transformation is sometimes painful and it requires a passionate commitment. However, the resulting beauty of the transformation process is priceless!  Just consider the beauty of the butterfly after having been enclosed in its cocoon.

Just as the caterpillar seeks safety and refuge in its cocoon; I enjoy retreating to my prayer closet.  I find that my heart longs to spend more quiet time with the Lord; seeking Him; reading His Word; listening to Him; experiencing Him, basking in His presence; being transformed into His image.  Much like the caterpillar enters into its cocoon to begin the transformation process, I enter into my prayer closet. Just as the caterpillar exits the cocoon transformed into a beautiful butterfly, I exit my prayer closet transformed more into the likeness of Christ.

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of the 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.” – Romans 12:2

Thank you for loving me Lord.  Thank you for changing me.

About Alecia Roberts

First and foremost, I am a Christian. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I wrote The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing while my husband was working overseas as a civilian contractor. The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing is my testimony of God's amazing love, grace and power in a surrendered life and heart. It was released on May 29, 2012. I lost my middle daughter, Heather who suffered from mental illness and addiction to an overdose in October of 2015. Since then I've dedicated my life to confronting addiction and promoting changes in North Carolina that will hopefully save lives.
