First of all I dislike change very much! These past couple of weeks change has hit me head on. It is a real bummer, change. It comes in many ways and things. I have cried a lot and thought long and hard about why things change and never stay the same.
These past couple of weeks I have and will lose friends to moving. All of them neighbors and dear friends to my heart. I will be losing a very influential man in mine and my husband’s life, my pastor. My son will lose three of his friends he has known since birth and plays with often.
So, I’m trying to come to the realization change might be a good thing. I could make new friends, (the others will never be replaced) We might get a different kind of pastor, (he will have big shoes to fill) and my son will make new friends (the others never forgotten) But I just can’t move on to accept that right now.
What I am doing is asking God to help me learn that change is good. I know he makes things change, so we can change as well. He changes us to trust in him when we don’t understand change. Nothing will ever stay the same, but my God will!
God is never-changing. His love will never leave and his presence will always surround us! That is what I cling to when change comes my way!!
I will always be grateful for my friends and pastor, because they have changed me!!!!!
