Time For A Change

Photo Credit Lisa Basile

It's autumn! The leaves are turning, temperatures are dropping and days are growing shorter. The colors, the scents and the anticipation of seasonal favorites fill the air. Isn't it just incredible how the seasons flow one into the other shifting in a way that causes you to embrace change? You expect it, plan for it and even enjoy it. That is really amazing considering that it's human nature to resist change. Let's face it, as much as you may dislike it, change is a constant part of life. 

God created us and the world around us to evolve and change. As part of His beautiful design day turns to night, summer to autumn, water to ice, caterpillars to butterflies and babies into children and then adults. Yes, God is all about change. He proclaimed in His Word that there would be a new covenant and the old would pass away. 

Still, as accustomed to change as you should be by now, you may be having a difficult time handling the change occurring in your life. You don't have to adjust to change alone. Jesus is right there with you and is ready to provide you the strength, endurance and will that you need to handle change. You can do this! It may take some time and require you to behave in a way that you are not familiar with. It could take you to a place you have never been. You may meet people that you never intended to have in your life. No matter what be sure of this, God is the Master of Change and will lead you through this journey with grace and care. Go ahead and just trust God for a change.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 
2 Corinthians 5:17
