Sunday Reflection: Change
I doubt if I'm alone when I say, I don't like change. Most changes, that come my way, attack my comfort zone. It seems to take me a long time to adapt to something good like new furniture or a puppy.
Some people have learned better coping skills than others. This came to light the other day when one of my colleagues didn’t deal well with a request I’d made, but another said when I apologized for the inconvenience, “Sounds good. I will get it done. Some people just don't want to roll with changes no matter what. I am adaptable.”
Their philosophy resonated peace with me. I want to be like that person, “roll with the changes”, be “adaptable”. Recognizing that life is full of change will help squash change's change on us.
It is what it is!
- There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
- a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
- a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
- a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
- a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
- a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
- a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
- a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
- a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NIV
May God bless you and keep you,
