Assorted wheels churn in the vehicles of change. Start your engines. Here we go. We prefer changes that please our surfaces rather than those that unsettle our inner securities. Ugh! With those types, we sometimes express things like, “Do I have to?” We’re prone to be disappointed when uncomfortable changes violate our protected spaces. We just don’t want to go there.
How many times have we resisted changes — then later been grateful for their appearances? Yeah, AFTER the facts? Life swings us in numerous directions. The outcomes often reap rewards that we didn’t anticipate or expect to be positive. Patience sure comes into play with the change formations.
Changes, though, have balances weaved into them. The feel good ones come and their opposites show in due times, too. We have portions of both, which makes our journeys more bearable. The Lord never allows us to experience more than we can bear. He holds the balancing instruments and He wields them with masterful precision. Whew, what a relief it is to know that comforting truth. GOD is genius with measurements. Yes, and I so appreciate his calibrations and choices with the details.
Yes, changes do rear up in our spaces. We need to thankfully “roll with the punches” and endure to the ends. Surely, cooperation with the various winds of change provide dividends that are immeasurable. Changes can prove best. We move steadily with the varied landscapes of alteration.
Changes bring with them: love, lessons, awareness, gains, transformations, and new appreciation for what is ahead in the good of the land.
Yes, indeed, changes can be our friends.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – KJV
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
