We have talked about change on here before, about how life is going to become different every day, and all the blessings and challenges that will come along with that kind of change. But today I wanted to talk about a change that is more personal, and happens within us. We are the only ones who know what we think 24/7, our thoughts control how we see the world, other people, ourselves, and we form thoughts and opinions about everything we encounter. As we grow up these thoughts change and adapt as we discover more about the world we live in, and about ourselves. This may seem like a simple concept and it is, I have just learned this is a powerful concept. We change, as humans beings constantly, everything affects us, and sometimes that gets overwhelming, we start to ask questions of doubt within ourselves, we start to have fear, have questions, and worries, and what I have learned is that- That is okay.
Change that happens within us makes us question who we are, what we like, who we like, what we want to do, what makes us happy, and the list could go on and on, but the point is, is that this unsettling change within us can be good. We can use it to really reflect on who we want to be, and if we are heading in that direction, a change of heart can be exactly what God wants you to experience to set you right on the path he has set out for you. We sometimes try to ignore it, try to ignore fear and doubt because we don’t know what is on the other side, or how it will make us different, and that is true, we don’t but God does, and the changes you are feeling are valid, and important and exactly what you need. Finishing my first year of college I cannot begin to tell you how many of these internal changes I have had. I have had doubts about myself, about my future, about what I want to do, and every single one of those I can tell you has led me right here, and what is cool is that we can look back and see just exactly how much we have grown, because we decided to trust God and let that change happen. Now not to say all this is all dandy, some of these changes will break you and they will make you doubt everything, they will confuse you so bad, you don’t even know left from right, it will happen, it will feel like you are stuck on a never ending road, and it will be okay. God wants us to forever be changing and evolving into a person we are proud to be, and a heart we are proud to show.
So. Don’t be afraid of the change within, it is okay.
