Things change in life; friendships, jobs, towns, and us. Changes are a normal part of growth and development. These changes can be difficult sometimes or just plain awkward. We often try to fight the change try to keep things the same. We can allow the change to take place or we can fight it till we are uncomfortable. Either way change will happen.
God often changes things in our lives whether we like it or not. He often uses these changes to help us grow and develop. Sometimes these changes help us to discover sin and rebellion in our lives or God just has a different plan for us.
“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.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Sometimes we must let go or allow the change to happen. This can be tough. It’s tough to try something new, to let go of something or someone, and it’s just plain scary to have to go beyond what you think you can do.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8
Christ never changes, though. His plans for us never change; that’s a truth we can hold on too. No matter what changes are happening in your life, know that Christ is with you.
