It is always easier said than done when it comes to CHANGE. Yet, for the most part, Change is inevitable in most cases. It is going to happen whether you like it or not. Consequently, you will not remain an infant forever-you grow up. If your hair is still dark-keep living. So why do we enter into change screaming, kicking and bawling all the way? It is easy to become comfortable in an environment that we are familiar with and begin to feel that there are no alternatives. Closing one door while preparing to open another is a huge adjustment. Considering the cost of making a change is even more devastating. We want all the Hows, the What’s, the When’s and Whys answered before we take that leap into the vast unknown. Once the change has been made, it usually is not nearly as bad as we anticipated once we see the opportunity awaiting us on the other side. You may even notice that the unsettling feeling in the pit of your stomach has now dissipated. After all, change must first begin within.
So go ahead and take the plunge! It’s a hard thing to do sometimes. It even saddens you because you are not quite certain as to what lies ahead. It can be very frightening! Yet, change is a very necessary part of becoming who God has called you to be. So let us be receptive. Let us welcome change!
