If there is one thing that is for sure it is that you can’t escape change. Change is simply a fact of life. It can be scary and overwhelming, like a move across country or a change in job status, but change can also be beautiful; like the changing colors of the autumn leaves, or the first blooms of spring pushing up through the soil. The way you approach change makes all the difference. I say embrace it, something I am still working on myself. But before you embrace the changing world around you I would venture to say you should first embrace the One who makes all change worth embracing. You do this by putting your trust and faith in the God who is in the business of changing people, and working all things for the good of those who love Him. Only after you embrace God and surrender all of your life to Him will embracing change be a little easier. You see, when you’re looking at change through the eyes of a person changed by God’s saving grace, you know that you’ll be secure in Him no matter where the changing world takes you. That a bring a peace with it and the ability to more easily embrace the change around you.
