Saying that change is scary is a huge understatement. Change can be horribly terrifying and intimidating.
But that's okay. Although sometimes we change, and we're scared of the outcome, change almost always turns out to be good in the end. Whatever might be changing in your life right now, whether it's a breakup, switching jobs, going to college, or maybe moving. One thing that I can guarantee you, is that it will all be okay. Let's talk about switching jobs, for instance, it can be scary because you don't know if you will like your new job or not. But guess what, if you hate it, then you can just try something else, nothing will force you to stay in an unhappy situation. And then, on the other hand, if you love your new job, then the change will have been a great thing. Either way, in the end, it will turn out okay.
There are changes in our everyday lives that we don't get a say in, and these can be pretty tough to get through. We don't get to choose whether we lose a loved one, or if the company we work for goes bankrupt. The most important thing to remember is that we do not need to worry about what changes in our lives for we always have God as a constant. And as long as we have God as our center, we have no need to worry about anything else that is out of our control.
Verses that show us this are:
- Deuteronomy 31:6
- Psalm 18:2
- Joshua 1:9
"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
