Surrendering To Change // Glimpses Link Up — 22 Comments

  1. Being willing to trust God even when we don’t see the big picture, is hard work. Soul work.
    Some changes are welcome, but there are some that are just downright painful and confusing. (I don’t like those kind of changes).
    I have had to surrender my will, to that of the Father, more than a few times. Sometimes I see the why behind the seasons of change. Other times, I don’t, and I’m forced to trust Him and His plan, despite my skewed view.
    But He is good. In that I can always trust.

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Barbie, this is a beautiful & encouraging post! This > “Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.” Yes & Amen!

    And I am not sure how I have missed that you had another linkup but it is good to join you again! Blessings!

  3. You have been through a season that I imagine somedays feels neverending to you. But I watch you persevere, pour out your heart into this space and continue to encourage us through it all. God has good planned for you and on the days you feel overwhelmed, I pray you see this glimpse of hope. Love and hugs!

    • Thanks Donna! I actually started my journey of gratitude several years ago on the blog and I believe there are some earlier posts which show I was over 1,000. But as I laid it aside for some time, I only thought it fair I should start again. This time, I hope not to stop.

  4. Some changes are definitely hard, but God is with us through it all. May we remember to trust and know that He will always do what is best. Blessings to you, Barbie!

  5. Dear Barbie,
    Oh I am with you–thinking that I like change, until it hits, and then I have a hard time with it. Thank you for the encouraging words about the seasons that “flow into one another.” I had not looked at that peaceful flowing before, but had just looked at the jarring of the change. He is so full of Grace towards us, even in the changes!

  6. So often I’ve looked forward to things “settling down” after a season of change, but like you said, I’ve discovered that life seems to be all about change. Some cause more of an upheaval than others, but all can drive us to more dependence on God – which I imagine is one reason He allows them. My default reaction is still to resist them, though, at least the seemingly unpleasant ones, but I hope by His grace to just trustingly go with the flow more.

  7. I agree, it’s not easy to surrender to change. It’s so important to remember God is with us in it and he has a plan
    PS- I’ve nominated you for a blogger award! Details are in my post if you want to take part, but absolutely no pressure! I just want you to know that I appreciate you!
