Hey friends, how are you today? The chilly temperatures came to our neck of the woods and have decided to stay awhile; oh, the shivers! I’m not quite ready for these colder temperatures, summer was so beautiful and hot and sunny, and did I say, beautiful? While out yesterday, I actually saw people walking around in full winter gear, bringing the truth that winter is inevitable. Why is change necessary? Why can’t things stay the same?
Changes are unavoidable, is it not? Personally, I enjoy some changes; for example, I love the foliage changes fall brings, but not necessarily the cooler temperatures that come with it. I love babies, but I did not appreciate the changes my body undertook to have those babies. I do enjoy eventually appreciate the changes the Lord makes in my life as I walk this spiritual path with Him. But you would have noticed I said eventually… because truthfully on most days, these changes require that I give up the things that bring me comfort and I like to be comfortable.
But spiritual growth needs my discomfort because then I will move, then I will cry out, then I will look up. Well… I suppose I might as well accept that change is coming, that most change will be uncomfortable, that change is for my good.
Here I go then, adapting to my change. How about you? What changes have come your way in 2020?
