As I sit here tonight thinking about the New Year that is approaching, I feel deeply the words “change ahead.”
There will be change in our world; change in our government; change in our cities; change in our communities; change in our churches; change in our families; and change in our lives.
Change can be scary; it can be challenging; but it is inevitable. To grow physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually means there will be change in our lives.
Change shouldn’t take place just for the sake of change. But, it does need to take place. It also needs to be God directed! What we think needs to change may not align with what God thinks.
We also need to be careful about telling others THEY need to change before we seek God on how WE need to change. Help us, Lord!
My prayer for this New Year is that we will allow God to move mightily in our lives and change our fear into faith; our doubt into trust; our pride into humility; our weakness into strength; and our self centered thinking into God centered thinking.
I pray that we will think before we speak; listen before we speak; and always speak in love.
I pray that those plans and ideas and ministries that have been put on the “back burner” will be moved forward! It’s time! Seek the Lord for He is waiting!
There is change ahead! And if we let God lead the change – all will be well!!
