One word. So many emotions.
Change can be exciting, miraculous, and fun.
Change can be frightening, daunting, and very difficult.
Change can be what we never wanted or everything that we ever needed and strangely enough, both.
Sometimes we run from the situations that we fear will bring the greatest changes. One thing for sure, though, change is inevitable in this life.
If you are anything like me, though, you may very well find yourself running, headlong into the fray that will leave indelible marks forever on your soul. Changes to who you will forever be afterwards. In circumstances that cause the most basic and complex changes – where your mind cannot comprehend the magnitude where all you can do is fall to your knees. Where crying out feels like the most natural thing to do and strangely enough, silence brings balance. Where up feels down and left has switched to right. Where faith is put to the test. All of it points back to the constant faithfulness of our Creator. To our Lord and Savior. He remains calmly centered in our changing. In our struggles.
I have been there so many more times than I can count!!
Change brought us to rural Guatemala.
Change took us from our rural haven to the capital city of Guatemala.
I find myself in wonder and wondering how this makes any sense. But, it does. It makes more sense every day.
God is faithful. Jesus paid it all. In full. That we may have life abundant.
In every stage of change – beginning, middle, and end.
Change can keep you from moving if you allow fear to steer you through the currents of this life. Fear stops you- FAITH MOVES YOU. Tides change. Winds change. Time zones change. People change.
Our one constant- the One who was, is, and will be-is not surprised when change comes. No matter how many changes there are. He knows the outcome. He knows the why. He knows the how and the who. Fear is not even a part of His equation.
If we have faith. If we trust. If we throw fear out of the proverbial window and LISTEN. Listen to the Spirit’s guiding voice, we can faithfully follow each step of the ever-changing route that will tell of His faithfulness, love, and devotion. He has never left us- nor will He, ever. Through all of the changes in this life. Through all of the changes within US. From the beginning to the end…
He is constant,
He is faithful,
He is unchangeable.
