Change sometimes frightens us or unsettles us, and yet from it comes all manner of opportunities for growth and development. New things we never thought possible become possible. New adventures we never allowed ourselves to consider before become realities. New directions we never envisaged become emerging vistas for realising new (or sometimes even old) visions we never previously gave ourselves permission to explore. Change opens our hearts to the possibilities of something new, and surely that is God’s desire, for He says ‘I am creating all things new’. In His grace and under His guidance and direction, we need not fear the future or the change it inevitably brings, but embrace the opportunities and move with the wind of His Spirit to new beginnings and new opportunities to proclaim His kingdom.
May you, in the midst of change, know His peace and joy in the week ahead.
