From Tandy’s New Book


As a friend and I were walking along a path in the woods, we noticed a few mushrooms growing nearby.  Once we started looking for them, many more of varying sizes and shapes were seen.

My friend leaned closer to take a picture of one of the larger mushrooms.  Wanting an unobstructed shot, she carefully moved a few blades of grass that were resting along the top of it.  I was surprised to see the marks that the grass left in the surface of the mushroom.  The light contact with the grass had left an impression which had changed the mushroom’s appearance.

This made me think about things that I come in contact with in my life.  Everything has the power to leave a permanent impression.  It doesn’t have to be something large to alter the way others view me.

Knowing this, I need to be aware of the influences in my life.  Is it the positive or negative that will leave the impression?  The more time I spend with God, the more His impression will be seen in me.  His impression is what will make my life attractive to others.

Don’t become like the people of this world.  Instead, change the way you think.  Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants – what is good, pleasing and perfect.  Romans 12:2 GWT
