The dreaded “C” word: change

August 31, 2012

 

I've always been a creature of habit and am comfy in my same old surroundings, same old friends, and have never felt a need to move on from any of that.

 

But over the years—this past year, especially—I've had to learn that change is inevitable. And I hate it. I really hate it.

 

I know that not all change is bad, and that some change is necessary, but the changes I've known this past year have been hard and painful, and I've often wanted to fight them. To run the other way and ever look back.

 

Trial has brought life-altering changes to my life—to my family's life—and it hurts. A lot. But as I've grown this past year, God has helped me to view change a bit differently. Instead of running from it, I'm now seeking him to show me what he wants me to learn from it. And when it hurts so bad that I don't think I can handle it, I am now looking to the One who never changes. The One who never lets go.
