Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Why is it we don't like change? Is it the possibility of failure? The fear of the unknown? Or the chance we might not find fulfillment on the other side?
I resist change because I can't plan for it. I can't put the unknown onto a timeline or on a list to check off. It leaves me feeling frazzled, unnerved, and not in control.
I hate not being in control.
But I have to constantly remind myself that I'm not suppose to be in control. If I were then things would be in disarray, because honestly I have no idea what I'm doing. HE is in control. HE has a perfect plan for my life. I find comfort in HIM alone, not in my perfectly planned schedule or detailed timeline. I need to set aside all fears and anxiety and trust in the Master Creator.
Josh and I have some big changes in the near future and we are overwhelmed with emotion. Fear, excitement, anxiety, stress, anticipation, spontaneity- It can all be quite daunting. But I know (somewhere deep inside) that it will all work out in the end.
Continuity gives us roots;
change gives us branches,
letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights.
