Jeremiah 29:11

I’ve never been someone who is good with change.

Take this for example: Every Wednesday morning I get coffee with a friend at the same local coffee shop. We have not missed a Wednesday in over two months until last Wednesday when we took a leap of faith.

A new coffee shop opened up near campus so we thought, why not? The idea behind the new shop was intriguing and sparked our interest enough to give it a shot.

Don’t get my wrong. It took a lot out of me to agree to trying this new place and sacrifice the comfort and familiarity of the coffee and workers I’m used to.

I’ll give it to them their coffee was phenomenal, but it was definitely not worth $5 for an average sized iced coffee.The workers were rude and the overall atmosphere of the shop just wasn’t my style.

This is just a minor example of my struggle with change.

Change is not always an easy thing, but it is when I put my trust and faith in the Lord’s plans that change becomes second nature.

Each new season of our life was written beautifully by our Lord. Even when we struggle to understand our current situation, we can be comforted by the fact that He is in charge. We are not in control, nor do we want to be.

When we completely surrender our lives to God, He takes over our hearts. When we give him complete control of our hearts, anxiety that accompanies change is unable to plague us. Each day we can rest in His embrace.

“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
