Compromise

It all begins innocently enough…you give in here, make a change there, start to justify things you once wanted nothing to do with. You begin to accept things that make you think for just a moment…that you may be crossing a line, but then quickly convince yourself that it is ok after all. Things you once stayed far away from, you now begin to see and think of as harmless. Compromise is a subtle deceiver… Compromise comes in slowly, subtly, it masks itself and begins a process of change that you are not even aware of.

We lose things, we gain things, we throw off things that are weighing us down and we pick up new things along the way that make the trip easier. Along the way we are changed…forever changed. Purified, refined, transformed, strengthened, focused, committed and equipped. We learn to speak a new way, understand things we had never considered before, shown things our eyes would never see on their own, think in ways we have never thought before…we become new and the old has gone away.
