Change is hard. Change feels like it’s gonna kill ya!
I don’t like change at all! In my life change has resulted in the death of family members. So my attitude to change is not a smiley face.
‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.’ (Romans 8:28 NIV)
So every change has a plan and purpose in my life for my good. Does that make it easier to handle change? Heck, no! But it does make me realize everything happens for a reason, that there is a purpose behind every change I go through. there is a blessing on the other side of this change. Change is only for a season, but it can feel like an eternity.
I am going through some changes right now, that are not fun. I know God has a reason behind every change. and a blessing on the other side of every change.
Last year, I read Kristen Strong’s Girl Meets Change and am reading through it again. i think she wrote the book just for me, it is how to handle change better. One of my many favorite quotes from Kristen’s book is,
‘If God is sending you to a new place He is sending you with a promise.’ That promise is a promise of blessings. when you come of this season of change there will be a blessing on the other side. going through change hurts and always costs you something. that’s the price Change asks you to pay. A friendship, a job, or the loss of a loved one. I have been through all those changes and I know I came out stronger person.
what doesn’t kill you does make you stronger. although change feels like it’s going to kill you; in the end you will be a stronger person.
Change hurts, but it’s worth going through to find the blessing.
From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people. (Psalm 3:8 NIV)
