“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change” – Heraclitus

Ecclesiastes 3:1

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

A big change happened in my life this past week. I had been praying for months for a resolution to a certain situation. Suddenly that problem was resolved. There was no hint the change was coming, it just happened. Now I am faced with new circumstances and new challenges. The question before me is how to approach those new circumstances and challenges in a way that honors God.

The answer is quite simple, it’s just humans have a tendency to overcomplicate things. We need to remember that everything God does for us is motivated by His great love for us. Knowing this, it’s critical to seek God’s direction when faced with great change. We may be tempted to face new circumstances the same way we faced old challenges, but new circumstances require an in-depth conversation with God, asking Him what we are to do in this new situation.

For me, taking a long walk with God will provide some guidance. I also need to delve into the Scriptures, asking our Lord for direction in this new season of life. Remember, the approach we have taken to old circumstances may not be the way to handle new things. We are creatures of habit and like that which is familiar, but God may be calling us out of our comfort zone. Be open to the new, and experience something new.

While change may be constant, it’s important to remember our God doesn’t change (Hebrews 13:8). His every action is based on His great love for us. Therefore, we can face every change knowing it is from God.

Blessings on your day.

  1. Yes!! Love this. We do over complicate things. When we rest in our Jesus and truly let Him lead out this dance of life, it’s amazing and fun even. Even the icky stuff has His joy tucked in and He invites us to rest in & on Him. Step up on His feet, you know the way we used to step on our parent’s feet and walk or dance with them and they really did all the work. We just held on. Hold on and enjoy the dance!

  2. ‘The question before me is how to approach those new circumstances and challenges in a way that honors God.’ This is always the challenge, but it is the invitation to grow and the blessing of experience maturing us to ‘perfection.’ Thanks for this, what a word of blessing for this morning.

  3. Julie, LOVED reading your heart in this post! I have been praying along side of you and it looks as though you are getting an answer. Enjoy walking and surrendering to His perfect will to be done! Embrace the change…He’s faithful to lead you through it!!! Big hugs!
