As part of the September Christian Writer's Blog chain, it is my pleasure to be a part of this group. Our monthly topic is "Change" Please follow the links at the right sidebar to follow the chain.
Change is the fundamental ingredient of life – we can not live without it, life would not exist without it. From the moment we are conceived to the moment we die, Change comes. Of all the topics I've written about boundary's, Change is boundless – Change is never ending, without limits or exceptions – Change will happen. Every breath creates change, every movement involves change. We can not stop or prevent Change because Change is it's own entity.
I can't remember a moment that did not involve change. From changing my mind about what to wear, what to eat, where to work, where to live or who to marry. If change were not involved, life would be rather dull. With that being said, change comes at some intervals we are not comfortable with or expected.
In a book called “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson, the author deals with four types and reactions to Change. He explains most debilitation to change are from poor role models. Excellent book I highly recommend.
I think most people would agree, that we don't like the unexpected – Sudden loss of a job, the ending of a relationship or change in living situations. We adapt, but sometimes the change is devastating which takes years to recover.
With the negative effects of change, also comes the good things life has to offer. Change brings with it accomplishment, fulfilling a long held dream and discovery of what God created us for. These things wouldn't be possible without Change.
With all the Boundary's God established, one might think that He would put a limit on Change – but there isn't any. I believe God in His perfect wisdom established change as a form of protection. That may sound strange, but without changing our mind or circumstances, we may not ever desire to seek the truth which gives us the strength to carry on through the good times and bad. Truth that gives hope of a future without change in the presence of the Lord.
These are my thoughts anyway – Shalom
