There comes a time in your life when things start to change. With any change comes a time of adjustment of getting use to something new. Sometimes, it is sad and hard, but other times it’s exciting and something to look forward to. Whatever change you may be going through, know that God has a plan and purpose for it all. I have come to the realization that I don’t like change, but God has been laying on my heart that this change is necessary. He has been calling me to encourage other women through writing, and I have started writing a book. In order to focus completely on that and other projects, I have decided after a lot of prayer that this will be my last post here. I am forever grateful for the opportunity I have been given to be able to share my heart with you all every month for the past 9 months. It has been an honor and privilege. I will continue to pray for each and every one of you as well as my fellow writers.
Is there change in your life? If you are anything like me your mind is racing and you have a million questions going through. I want you to stop, breathe, and take a minute to read this scripture passage.
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is a beautiful picture that God is telling us there is a time and season for everything. As I have been learning over the last couple years, change happens and there’s nothing I can do about it. While I could be upset and cry over the way things were and worry about where things are going, instead I choose to embrace it. This doesn’t mean that I don’t think about how things were, but those memories will always be with me. It’s exciting to see where God leads in each season of change. So, I encourage you to anticipate and embrace whatever season of change you are facing knowing that God always has a reason and His plan is so much better than ours. It’s been a great journey, and I look forward to this season of change I am in with pursuing new opportunities God has been allowing to come into my view. Blessings and peace be with you all.
