Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. Psalm 31:3
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
Change. It happens every day, every moment, everywhere. To live fully we must learn to embrace change and honor it. Sometimes change forces us to live day to day instead of dwelling on the past or worry about the future. Belief in God can help us with worry by “letting him take control” of what happens. Belief in His Promises to take care of us and that He wants to give us good things if we stand firm in Him.
Start living in the NOW
The worst part about living in the past or the future is that you’re giving up your personal power. If you’re not living now, you’re giving up your life. You’re surrendering your power to create. If there are changes you’d like to make in life, it’s best to do it now. If you’re living in the past, you can’t do anything about it, it’s gone. If you’re worrying about the future, you’re living somewhere that doesn’t exist. It hasn’t happened yet. If you want to change your life, the only place you with God’s strength is in the present. But first you need to accept life as it is. When it comes down to it your mind is the only thing keeping you from living in the present and enjoying daily blessings sent from God to comfort us.
FATHER GOD – THANK YOU SO FOR BEING OUR ROCK THROUGH TIMES OF CHANGE. HELP US TO REMEMBER TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT AND APPRECIATE DAILY BLESSINGS THAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED. HELP US TO REMEMBER THAT YOU WANT BETTER THINGS FOR US. CHANGE PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES, HAPPINESS AND CONTENTMENT IF WE STAND FIRM IN YOU. AMEN
