Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace . . .which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 4:6–7
Change is a scary thing....a really big scary thing.
It takes away that assurance of knowing what tomorrow may bring.
It takes away that safety net; the assurance and security of routine.
But despite its BIG and SCARY nature, change is very essential to human existence.
It is that force that propels us to move forward instead of staying comfortably in one stagnant spot.
It makes us see the World differently and realise there is more to life than what we already know.
I should know about change because that is exactly what is about to happen to me.
I am about to leave my Safe Haven; my Comfort Zone.
Am I scared of this change?
Am I ready to let this fear cloud my ability to see the World in a different light.
Definitely NO *in a shaky tiny voice*...lol.
But hey, you can't move to a different spot and most especially an elevated spot by staying on one spot.
So despite not knowing where exactly this new chapter will lead me; I still have something constant to hold on to.
I may not be the typical Church-Going-Bible-Hugging Christian (nothing wrong with that, but I prefer inward & genuine religion than the prevalent outward parade of religion going on nowadays *story for another day*) but I know where my loyalty lies and the ultimate source of all things good and beautiful.
So, as always, I have my dear Philippians 4:6–7 to remind me of the endless possibilities already laid out for us in life and all we need to do is take one step at a time in faith, hope, joy and of course work hard till we attain what God wants us to have.
And am sharing this verse with everyone out there who is about to or is already changing lanes in life; be happy, life only gets better.
Question: How do you react to change?
