If there's one thing that I am really not good at it is change. I don't adjust well at all. I try. I want to be ok with change but I almost always fall short. I don't even know if it is all types of change that I have a hard time with or a certain few.
One of the biggest difficulties for me is when friendships or relationships change. People come and go in our lives on a daily basis. I am usually ok with the short term coming and going but the ones that stick for a while, I tend to hold onto them. Tightly.
Lately God has been reminding me that He is the one in charge. That He is the one that determines who comes and goes in our lives. Usually "change" is a bad word with a negative connotation but it doesn't have to be. If fact, many good things come from change.
So as I continue through the good, bad and ugly of life I am reminded once again that God has everything under control.
1 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born, And a time to die;
A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill, And a time to heal;
A time to break down, And a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain, And a time to lose;
A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear, And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
8 A time to love, And a time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.
