Change…

Change is an interesting thing. For some of us it can be really scary. For others it is a challenge, warmly embraced. And for some, it’s a combination of the two. It is interesting to watch how others react in moments of change.

I am an oddity when it comes to dealing with change. Some changes I am able to embrace, yet others send my heart to flying and my palms to sweating. Yet lately, I have begun to notice that I am learning to remain more calm in the midst of storms. Those that know me understand what a testimony this is.

It’s funny, I have been through a lot of changes in the last two years. I got married, left the town I grew up in, and moved to a much, much larger city. I started a new job, watched my husband change jobs, watched my children grow and change very quickly in many different ways, and yet I am still sitting amongst even more changes. The funny thing is, I am becoming conditioned. Palms aren’t so sweaty, heart palpitations aren’t so frequent, breathing isn’t so heavy. I’m actually able to rest, believe, and have faith.

And who says there’s not a God? Without him none of this “calmness” would be possible:)

Jer 29:11 (NIV) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

  1. To this I can relate. I could probably do a bit better in the ‘faith’ department though…
