If I want to grow, then I can not be afraid of change.
When I was a young girl, the only thing I knew for sure, was that change was going to happen. I remember moving around every four years due to my parent’s occupation. I lived in Texas,California , Illinois, and Arkansas. I remember being excited about the adventures and yet when it finally came, we didn’t know how to deal with the changes.
The real fact is change is hard. Change, if you are going to grow, is inevitable. Get used to uncomfortableness and the way it might effect other areas of your life. The ending of relationships, the adjusting to new culture or environments, and often financial adjustment to the community around me. My younger me didn’t quite understand it all, and sometimes still as an adult have to weigh in all the facets that change will bring.
So here I am, contemplating some changes in my life. Decisions, decisions, decisions. I know that for sure, even if I miss the mark, it will all be ok in the end, but I know the journey will be one of transition and uncomfortableness. So, what do I do? Do I press on the brakes and make sure that these next decisions are the ones I want to enter into?
While I know we balance each other out, I wish I could be a little like my husband. He can take a leap of faith without looking, while I am sitting on the edge deciding how many ways I can climb down the mountain with the easiest route.
The truth is, sometimes the easiest way to the bottom is to trust fall.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5.
So, here it is… truths
Change is sometimes hard and uncertain… trust God.
It looks like a crazy idea…trust God
If I want to move forward in life…trust God
It will effect the relationships around me…trust God
It will be uncomfortable…. trust God
I can not grow if I am not willing to change…trust God
Truthfully, I trust God fully, so I know that He is for me in whatever decision I make. In fact, like a good Father, he wants me to take risks and dare to believe that He will catch me if I should fall. I don’t have to be afraid because He empowers me to take each step, even the big ones.
Trusting Him with every area of my life and the decisions to move into a new position. Trusting Him that He believes in me and He believes I am ready, because I acknowledge that He is my source and my shield. He delivers me from all my fears, and He holds me under His wings.
Change may be… well change. I’m gearing up to be a bit bolder, more confident, and fully trusting. Spreading my wings to fly!
So… ready…set… jump>>>
