How many non-negotiables do you have? The more you have (though clearly some are paramount) the harder it may be for you to move into new things.
Some of the conversations I enjoy the most are from older people who tell me how they have changed and had to change for God to continue to use them.
May our prayer be ‘God make me ever more pliable in your hands’
