The Transforming God

“The Enneagram” was not an article I expected to see in “The Magnolia Journal.” Written by Chris Heurtz, it made me curious enough to go to the website, When I realized it cost $12.00, I decided I didn’t have time to take it. Then I read my devotional.

“In his book Signature Sins: Taming Our Wayward Hearts, Dr. Michael W. Mangis identifies nine of these patterns using an ancient system called the Enneagram. …it’s thought to have originated out of consideration of the seven deadly sins and the fruit of the Spirit,…To help you become more self-aware and build a defense against your particular area of vulnerability. …” The Word for You Today

Building a defense for my vulnerable areas is a good idea. I’ve tried conquering them on my own unsuccessfully.

Jeremiah 30:1-2, “God’s Message, the God of Israel: ‘Write everything I tell you in a book. Look. The time is coming when I will turn everything around…’ ” The Message

One area is my health. I battle sinus headaches, allergies, atopic dermatitis, and asthma. The headaches have been persistent this week.

Jeremiah 30:17, “As for you, I’ll come with healing, curing the incurable…” The Message

I want to be healthy, productive, inspiring, and hopeful. Transformation – that’s what I want! Only God can transform.

Jeremiah 30:22, “…God will create a new thing in this land: A transformed woman will embrace the transforming God.” The Message
