Change. I’ll be the first to admit it, I don’t like change. All change, from choosing which shampoo to try next, to the decision to quit a job I am used to. Change is hard. It’s oftentimes messy, unpleasant, and it flat out takes effort that we don’t always want to put forth, especially if it’s an uncomfortable change. But you know what, CHANGE IS GOOD. Seriously. What is life without change? Shouldn’t we all want to better ourselves and take the next step? I am positive that God is not ever okay with us just sitting around being comfortable. We are SUPPOSED to be UNCOMFORTABLE.
Life. Is. Change.
Moving here was the biggest decision and change I have ever made, and it was insanely difficult. But you know what? It is so wonderful to know that I am exactly where God wants me to be right now. He led me in this direction. As uncomfortable and challenging as it was to pick up my life and move here, it is perfect. And that’s it folks; God’s plan is always perfect. Let me say that again for those of you who are not listening… GOD’S PLAN IS ALWAYS PERFECT. So stop questioning it. His plan often makes us do things we never thought we would, or never thought that we could. But we can. He will never leave us astray.
This is my command — be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. — Joshua 1:9.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread… for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. — Deuteronomy 31:6
So please, do yourself a favor and stop being comfortable. Get uncomfortable. You’ll be very glad you did.
