The Times They Are-a-Changin’

Let me start with a quote by the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus: The only constant in life is change.

Change can feel like a wave, in both positive and negative ways. The mere thought of having to change can bring the boldest, most enthusiastic, and determined person to their knees.

And when change does happen, how you handle it can either strengthen you as an individual or cause you to become overwhelmed and lost.

If you become frustrated with a shift in lifestyle, you might find yourself fearful and unsure of what to do. But when you allow God to guide your evolution—life (as you know it) will improve by orders of magnitude.

Your circumstances don’t matter—what matters is your faith and will to follow God through the changes He wants you to make.

It won’t be easy, and you will face setbacks, but as a child of God, you can rest in the knowledge that He is working everything out for your good. (Romans 8:28)

So…you must persevere.

Most people lose faith in God and His ability to deliver them from their fear, allowing worry to consume them, forgetting that process advances to progress.

You see, when you’re doing what God asks of you, and you’re doing it in faith, you have the freedom to leave behind past setbacks, failures, and mistakes and choose a new path that is more aligned with your purpose and passion.

You won’t be perfect—that’s impossible. Instead, you’ll be bold and courageous and unafraid of taking on new challenges. You’ll be engaged and alive and engaged in life.
