Things are changing, do you remember

This new season of life has brought an incredible amount of ups and downs. I have been learning more about my need for Jesus than I probably have in my entire life.

This is a good thing, quite obviously. 

But if I can be transparent, I'm a little anxious for when this season passes. 

I'm concerned that when circumstances get "easier", or more and more normal, that I'll become less dependent on Him.

See, I believe that Jesus wants our whole being--every ounce of who we are. I believe he wants us to live IN Him at all times. 

I believe an important part of following Jesus is allowing him to shape and mold us to be more like Him. 

That is why I desire

to be changed.

I don't want this difficult season to pass and come out on the other end NOT having learned that I still need Him.

So this change to the blog is just a teeny tiny piece of the puzzle. 

It's simple. I want to be changed.


A few fine details:
*If you're viewing in a reader, hop on over to the blog and see the changes.
*I've decided to keep the sugarpumkin url for now to avoid confusion. Maybe I'll change it later. We'll see.
*I've been tempted at times to delete a lot of my prior posts due to embarrassment, or simply because I've changed my thinking or viewpoint. But isn't that the beauty of life? We change. And this blog--embarrassing posts and all--document that in my life. Praise be to Him. *grin*


  1. Don't delete the other stuff!!! "How precious are your thoughts about me, O God." I read Psalm 139 for my devotional today and it's so encouraging to know that God loves us NO MATTER WHAT!

  2. I LOVE your new look. :-) Just love it. And i agree - don't delete the old stuff! I definitely have my share of embarrassing posts, too. Such is the journey of life. :-) Can't wait to hear more from you.
