I know. I know. Our lives are complicated enough as it is!
Who needs more conflict? Who needs more trouble?
But what is life without its ups and downs? How bored would we all be if things were always exactly the same day in and day out.
I'm a very no-drama kind of person. Don't try to push me out of my comfort zone. Don't ask me to do anything I haven't done before (and liked). Don't expect me to change my hairstyle.
But sometimes I like to be brave and do something wild and crazy (as long as it's legal and moral). We need a little drama in our lives. It's good for us.
As much as I love cool weather and hate summer, I know the changes in the seasons are necessary. Not only so plants and animals can go through their growth cycles, but because as humans we need the variety. God knew that when He made us and when He made the world.
So maybe it's time to look at the drama in our lives in a different way. Yes, we need calm. We need stability and comfort. We need rest.
We also need change. We need a little drama. It's good for us.
If nothing else, it makes us appreciate the peace when we have it.
