Dealing with Change
Change is one of the most consistent things in life. We are constantly changing in an ever-changing world. One aspect of this can be seen in the ageing process. When we reflect on the image in a mirror, we look and see a maturing edition of ourselves and see the work of nature taking its course in our lives. We can also look at the world around us and see things changing. We are witnessing laws changing, the ways people manage their lives changing, technology changing. This constant process of change can often create a level of insecurity in us. The reason is, we often find that we cannot keep up with the speed of change.
Often we want changes to occur, but we don’t want to have to change. We would like others to change!
When we take an honest look at ourselves - this can possibly be the hardest point of change - it can be a big wake up call. When we admit to ourselves our need for change it can shake things up. Our security is tested during times of change. Sometimes where we have based our security is revealed to us.
The writer in the book of Hebrews (in the Bible) reminds us in,
Hebrews 6:19, 'This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil.'
Is our hope in the one who rent the veil and allowed us back into the presence of God? Jesus has become our mediator between us and God and has restored hope in the heart of humanity.
Often during periods of change, our hope can be clouded. You may need to pray and ask God to give you a restored hope and clear focus on what Jesus has made accessible to you by removing the barrier of your wrongdoing by the blood of Jesus. Thereby allowing us into God’s presence!
God Bless you!
