Change, Embrace It
I’ve been through a lot of change in the last couple years. Some seemly bad, and the others so so good. All-in-all at the end, once you break through it, none of the changes really seem so bad. I think this is because we are stronger than we think. I have realized though that it is me who is stronger. So many other people who go through what I have been through, may not always feel the peace I do when change is so eminent all around them. But, I have never feared change, but rather I try to welcome it. Why? Because I want to constantly be bettering myself, growing and changing. Shaping myself into who God is calling me to be.
There are times when I allow myself to become distracted by the comfortable every day things, but then I begin to feel restless, knowing there has to be more. I never want to be comfortable, I don’t mean physically, because hello I live for comfortable clothes, shoes, beds, blankets, etc. I mean in a spiritual/mental sense. I never want to think I know enough, or have grown enough, because quite frankly that is not true at all. There are people in the world around you, that you can learn from everyday. There are books to read, places to explore, mountains to climb, food to eat, people to speak life into! I never want to get to a place where I have reached the peak, and that’s it! I want more, I want the most of this life until I get to go to heaven. I want to know that I spent my time loving life, and loving people.
Maybe you are in a place of big change. Can I just tell you, it is going to work out. You’re going to make it through this. You are stronger than you know. Just keep going, be thankful for the change, let it make you a better person. A stronger person. Let it be good, speak life over the new circumstances. The words you speak over your life are what you believe. Make them productive and fruitful, to good things!
