CHANGE - VERB. MAKE OR BECOME DIFFERENT.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
Change is good. Change is good. Change is good. Keep saying it until you believe it. Change is good. Change is good except when its not! It’s cliché, those words. We say and hear them all the time, “Change is good.” Good to whom? It usually feels awkward and uncomfortable to me. Change is disruptive. Change is scary. Change can be unpleasant and cause us to face things about ourselves that we don’t want to face. Change can be a nuisance.

Bible clearly states in Ecclesiastes there is a time and season for everything under heaven. To get from one season to another, change must take place. It is utterly impossible to move into the places God has prepared for us if we don’t accept and embrace the change that accompanies it. What’s frightening is not knowing the outcome of the change, or do we?
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

“See, I am doing a new thing! ... I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19
All can be going well and bam…change injects itself and disrupts everything. It’s God’s plan and He is turning your good into better and your better into the best.
No matter how disappointing or confusing, allow God to make necessary changes to bring you to an expected end. At times, we are ready and in need of a change, and God drags it out, other times, we are cool and not so ready and God is like,
Either way, God is sweet, perfect and loving, and no matter what the circumstance, change will work in your favor. Change is good!
