From Better to Best

Change bothers me. That’s probably a head scratcher to some people but regardless, it’s true.  Change is change and change my friend, is hard.  I’ve told and been told, “You need to deal with it”.  While that’s true, it doesn’t make it easier to handle.  Personally, change from bad to good is easy to handle.  However, changing from good to better to even better to best is when it gets hard.



When we go from bad to good we’re satisfied.  Life is getting better, things are progressing, and the change is accepted.  However, when we move from good to better or better to best, we often have to give up control of something, somewhere in ourselves.  That is difficult no matter who you are.

I can recall recording our first record.  All the people involved had to give up control to let the who were specialists in their area do what they do best.  If it were in a single persons hands, the record would have turned out a flop.  In the end the disc turned out better than anyone could have imagined because we all let the people involved do what was needed to accomplish the goal.  While a lot of us wanted to do things that we outside of our giftedness, we knew it would be detrimental to the disc.

Know this.

The further down the road you get in ministry, the more you will have to come to the realization that if you want to grow then you have to change.  That change might be easy at the start as you go from bad to good but it will be more and more difficult when you go from good to better and better to best.  You will lose control something, somewhere, every time.  As the ministry and impact grows, so does control.  What you have been used to doing in the past, you might not get a chance to do in the future.

That’s not a bad thing.

So in change, may you utilize the time in going from good to better and better to best by continuing to hone your individual skill that God has gifted you to do.  Focus in on becoming a specialist at what you know God has gifted you to do best.  As you give up control and let others impact those around them by their gifting from God, may you impact other the way God has gifted you.  This is the beauty of the kingdom of God.  When all the saints are humble and active in utilizing their gifts, God is glorified in the change.  From bad to good, good to better, and better to best.

Stil processing it myself.
