Change is in the air. The winter has given way to spring and everything is coming alive again. My lilac tree is in full bloom and brings a fragrance so sweet it can carry one away from the chaos of the day. My once brownish lawn has become a lush green carpet underneath my feet. Daffodils and tulips share the space where they have been planted bringing with them visual delights.
I wish all change was so welcomed; so, embraced as the change from winter to spring. How much easier life would be.
We accept that not all change is bad but sometimes change can be difficult. Especially when we don't see the need for change. Why can't life just carry on.... without interruption to my routine; without loss of loved ones; without pain and sickness?
Jesus said that in this world we would have tribulation but be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. Even with His promises we still struggle.... I still struggle.
Father, help me to embrace the changes you have for my life. Help me to surrender my will to Yours. I know that as I do it will go well with my soul for You have overcome and I am Yours.
