I hate transition! I absolutely dislike change!
Am I the only one? I doubt it. History has shown me that change is normal .. it comes with life. And, frankly, change is sometimes a good thing. When we are in transition, we are more likely to seek His face for wisdom. We look to the Word of God for guidance. When we are experiencing a time of change, we allow Him to prune us of all areas in our lives which we need to shed.
I am a list maker and I like to have my life planned out. But, to be honest, I agree with Joyce Meyers when she says that she thinks God must sit up there and laugh at us when we have a plan. I had to giggle when heard that because I can have everything planned down to a ‘T’ and in reality, do I really have anything under control? Do I control the weather? Do I even have a clue on what is happening next? He alone knows if I will even be breathing in this next second!
Frankly, why do I feel the need for control? I know that in reality, only He has control. I can not even predict if I will breathe in the next second! I have a huge need for security and I bet, I am not alone.
Where do you run when life seems rocky and unsure? Do you run to your close friend or your spouse? One is very blessed to have someone close to run to. These people are true treasures from His throne. He gives us people we can share life with and find community and this is so important! To walk through life with the joy and companionship of a close and trusted friend is precious.
When times of ‘chaos’ come, I have learned to run to Him. Run to Him in worship. Turn on the worship music, rest in His presence and allow Him to speak to me … even when it is a time of repentance. If there needs to be a pruning in my soul, this can be a most welcome time of healing. When there is a lot of change going on, this is a time of growth if I allow Him to work in my heart. Do I allow Him to rid me of areas that need trimming? Is He actually answering a prayer? I have recently prayed to go deeper with Him… hmmmm… He is hearing my hearts cry.
As I realize this, now I must ask, “Am I teachable?” I pray that I am. Take me deeper, Lord, take me deeper.
As I pray this, I am wondering, anyone want to go deeper in His Word? Come and join us on www.facebook.com/groups/Proverbs31Jewels and request to join! In the next few weeks, we will be starting a new bible study. Beth Moore’s A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place or possibly her newest study on 1 and 2 Thessalonians.
In His love,
