It's Wednesday, but I'm posting a day late. I've been working hard on a new book and just didn't get my blog done. I know you'll forgive me, because that's the kind of people you are.
My thoughts today are about change. Once again, it's come knocking at my door. And, again, I don't like it. I never have liked change, and as I've gotten older it's become more difficult to "go with the flow".
Like death and taxes, change is a certainty in life. No matter how tightly we hang onto the familiar it will eventually slip out of our grip. And whether we want to let go or not, we need to find a way to release our personal plans and accept a new direction.
For me, this is a big one. It' not going to be easy. I've already shed more tears than I have too spare. And though our tears are a way of releasing emotions it's time for me to let go and move on.
One thing I know is that I do not carry this heartache alone. God knows what I know and far more. He will sustain as he always has. And even now is telling me to rest in him, not to worry. He's got this.
My roots are deep. I am like a tree planted and tended by God.
It is a comfort to know he will never leave me nor forsake me. He will always be my friend, my comforter, my redeemer. Because of him I have no reason to fear. And he will wipe away every tear.
How do you feel abougt change? Love it? Hate it? How do you deal with it?
