Embracing Change

Let me borrow Joel Osteen's podcast title for this entry. And I will quote his Today's Word about this very strong word, CHANGE.

Embrace Change

Today's Scripture

He changes times and seasons.” (Daniel 2:21)

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

God is always looking to take us to higher levels. He wants us to grow and increase in every area of life. Change is often a catalyst for growth in our lives. It keeps us from getting stuck in a rut. God will supernaturally open and close doors to keep us on the path toward our destiny. He will “stir us” out of comfortable situations and stretch us because He loves us too much to allow us to live in mediocrity. Just like a mother eagle will stir her young, God will stir His children. Do you know how an eaglet learns to fly? That eagle will take her eaglet to the very highest point—way out of its comfort zone—and then she releases it. As the eaglet falls, the mother swoops down and picks it back up again. She does this over and over until the eaglet spreads its wings and soars through the air. That’s what God wants for you today. He wants you to soar in life! You might feel like that eaglet learning to fly, but know that God is right there with you! He’ll never leave you. Embrace God’s change today, knowing that He is using it to take you up higher so that you can live in victory all the days of your life!
I had to look for this particular topic, as suggested by my dearest Cheryl, as I am a person who struggle with change. Rather than embracing it, my natural reaction is to push it away. Ooh.. I could be too stubborn about it. But with God's grace, most of the changes in my life happened for the better.

The Lord is rocking my comfort zone right now. And I know I should stay close to Him more now and He will lead me to the right path. I'm not going to deny that I am scared. Well, it's a life changing decision for Jed & me. Right now, I cannot disclose what that predicament is as I need to inform and ask for the blessing of the most important woman in my life -- my mother.

But this change will be good.

It's what I call a leap of faith.

Why would I be scared when I know God and my husband will be with me?
