I’ve been anticipating this book study for a while, and I am so glad that you are here. Whether you will be reading along with me, or just reading blog posts and interacting through comments when you can, I am so excited you are here. If you haven’t already liked my Facebook page, I would love to have you visit me there as well. I will be sharing insights and quotes there a couple of times each week.
This week’s post is introductory in nature and I hope to leave you a few nuggets to chew on as we head into our first full week of reading.
This quote from the Forward hit me square in the face. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been kicking and screaming against certain changes in my life over the past few years. God is so patient with me. I can almost see him standing in the corner, with His arms folded, with a smirk on His face as He reminds me that when I’m done having my fit about my circumstances, He is right here.
Change is seldom easy. It’s hard to adjust to moving in a different direction when you’ve been walking along the same path for years. And then suddenly, everything changes. Perhaps God is calling you to move to a different state away from family and friends. Perhaps He’s calling you to change jobs, leaving behind what has become familiar and safe for many years. Perhaps you are going through the heartache of a broken relationship. No matter the change you are facing, know this:
“It is possible to thrive even if the change looks like the exact opposite of the path you’d prefer.” – Kristen Strong, Girl Meets change.
And that, my friend, is how we will learn to embrace change. We will choose to believe that God will bring us into this new season not to merely exist, but to thrive!
We do not walk alone. God will hold our hand until we come through to the other side. Click To Tweet Our job is to trust Him. But first, we must surrender this season of change to Him and believe that He is working all things in our lives out for our good.
Join me next week as we discuss Chapter 1.
