And many more.
And so fitting a prompt today….CHANGE.
Ready. Set. Go…
It’s life. Right? Change. We change. We have children. They change.
Our world is constantly changing. And we can feel swept up in the change and whirled about like a hurricane that sweeps us off our feet and leaves us in strange new places.
For so many of us, that can be a new adventure. For others, it’s our worst nightmare.
Change can mean fear, uncertainty, insecurity. It can mean feeling left out, alone, unimportant.
In ministry, my husband and I have encountered this attitude toward change so very often. It’s truly heartbreaking in many ways. To watch people balk at change and be so afraid of it that it leads to anger, bitterness, resentment and unrelenting stubbornness to inevitable change.
Ah, so how do we live steeped in the cup of grace in a world that is ever changing?
Is it impossible? To meet change with arms open and grace abounding?
I don’t think it’s impossible. I think a heart open, embraces change with fewer bumps than fists clenched tightly, holding on with a vice death-grip to the familiar.
He’s gone before us. He holds our future in His hands. Keep our hearts open.
For change is life.
