~Ready Or Not~

Ready or not here I come.....we all said as children when playing hide and seek! It's a reminder to me when change comes unexpectedly. Change was always difficult for me when I was young and even more difficult for me now that I am older. Life changes on a dime. Some changes are good and some are not so good. I would think that it would get easier each time but I don't find that to be true. Change is still difficult and often frightening.

Change happens to everyone in many ways. It could be a death, an illness, divorce, job, misunderstandings, accident, prison, etc. Every day someone's life is going to be changed whether we are ready or not. I know that "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose." according to Romans 8:28. So what does that mean to me? It means that change is coming and I have to trust God in that change.

Do I fear? Of course. ~ Do I trust? Some days. ~ Do I get emotional? Always. ~ Do I let it get to me? Yes, unfortunately. ~ Do I start again each day? I want to. ~  Do I overcome it? Not really. ~ Do I fail? Constantly! 

Life can certainly dish up some tough stuff, and we can find ourselves reeling from unexpected news or disappointment.  In those circumstances, don’t be shy and hold back.  God really wants us to pour out our emotions.  In fact, it’s the healthiest choice. The Daniel Plan info@saddleback.org
