I think that most of us can say that we hate change, we hate having to move, we hate starting the new year, we hate starting a new school, we hate changing school but most of all we hate changing ourselves, our outlook on life, our feelings and our thoughts. Change can be hard, change can be easy and change can be amazing but we have to be willing to accept change in our lives. Change is something that happens from the moment that we are born and it something that we need to get used to. Change is something that we have to deal with almost all of our lives, we will need to change schools at some point in our lives, we will need to move at some point and maybe some of us may get married and that will be a massive change in our lives!
Throughout my life I have had to deal with a lot of change and most times I have not been able to cope with it; I have changed schools and found in hard; even starting a new school year was hard for me; I found it hard, even though it was my choice, to go on a gap year; I found it hard with the holidays and changing routine, I found it hard being away from my bed, I found it hard when I left home, I even found it hard when I got married. All of these things were because of change, change was something that I did not cope with, change was something that I found hard but throughout the years I have put things in place to help and things in place that make change easier to deal with.
Change is something that happens everyday to every person. Throughout our whole life we have to accept change and we have to deal with change. Change is something that happens through everyday and every year and something that can be uncomfortable. However, change is something that can be amazing, having a baby can be a change, moving house can be a change, taking your child on their first day of school can be a change. Change is something that we can be afraid of or something that we can grasp with both hands. Throughout life we need to learn not to be fearful of it but we need to grasp it with both hands and be thankful that we can change things in our life. We need to be thankful that we can change schools if it goes bad, we need to be thankful that we can change our houses if they get too small, we need to be thankful that we are able to have children, we need to thankful that we can change the way that we live so that we can have a better life.
We also need to think about those people who are not able to change their lives, some people do not have the opportunities we have, some people do not have the community around them to support them and some people do not live in a country where they can change things. Change can be hard for other people and change may not happen for them. We need to think of these people and realise that change is something that we have to work for, we sometimes need to money for and we do need the community to help us. There are so many changes that happen in this world, good change and bad change and we have to try and keep up. There are somethings that do not change in our lives but almost everything does change.
Throughout our lives we will learn how to deal with change but there is One that we can rely on that would not change, there is One who does not change even though things happen, there is One who does not change how they are feeling, there is One who stays the same and there is One who we can rely on not matter what changes in our lives. Jesus is the One who does not change His feelings, He does not change depending on how we behave and He does not change His love for us. He came down to this earth as a baby to grow up so that we were then able to fully trust in Him.
