Just like in nature, I have to remind myself
to be intentional
about watching for beauty and blessings
when change is upon me.
It's easy to be comfortable and want to stay
right where you are,
when you are at peace in that place.
Sometimes we stay because we love it there.
And sometimes we may stay
in that place
because we have settled out of fear.
A place where
there are no new challenges
we must face.
But either way of running from change
leads to us missing out on
all of the beauty God has planned
for our lives and our future.
Change brings newness and
just like in nature and it's seasons,
we may have to wait for the beauty to show itself sometimes,
by waiting through some drought
or not so sunny of times in our lives first.
But God's plans for me and you ahead,
are so worth
the wait and time that it takes for change.
In my own life right now,
I can see where there are a few areas I have settled in.
Mostly because of being afraid
of stepping right or left in fear I will
make the wrong move.
Also trying to give myself some grace
after having a major surgery 9 months ago.
Sometimes for change to take place there
has to also be a time of rest so we
can replenish for the great plans to come.
How about you?
Have you been in this place of settling or
afraid of change before?
Wishing you my friends,
a Color filled week.
