It’s not always easy to make changes.

Life is always changing and it is not always easy to make those changes. My fourteen year old daughter is graduating from the eighth grade this year. She is having a tough time in this last week of school, realizing that she will be leaving her middle school friends behind and going to the High School of her choice that will not be with her current friends. My daughter was accepted into a program at a high school in another city that will prepare her for her chosen career as a Veterinarian while in high-school. God opened up the door for her and we were so thankful for that but the opportunity is hard for her, she will have make some sacrifices of not going on to high school with her friends in order to prepare herself for her future. I know that the transition is bittersweet for her and at the moment it is not easy to feel torn between staying with her friends and what is going to be the best decision for her future.
I know that she will not regret this decision and it is best for her to keep moving forward but moving forward is how she will grow and achieve her goals. 

My daughter’s situation reminds me of my own walk with God,sometimes the changes in my life have been painful but in the end I have grown so much. Changes can be scary, even for adults we like to stay where we are comfortable and familiar. I have fought change many times in my walk with God, but I must say that if I knew then what I know now, then perhaps I would not have fought so hard to hold on to the same old life that I thought was dear to me. Walking with God change are inevitable, but God will bless abundantly if I keep moving forward. God promises to never leave or forsake us. The best choice I can make is not always the easiest choice but choosing to move forward and trust God is the best way for me to grow.

  1. Amen. We need to change in order to become more like Jesus. Changes in this life are necessary preparation for what God has planned for us in the next life. And the most painful ones are the most necessary ones. It makes me think of ROMANS 12:2. Thank you 😊


    • Thankyou! Yes, that’s so true.
      That is what reading God’s word does, you read or hear something and it brings remembrance of a scripture to your mind. That’s cool.:)
