Change


Why do I hate change so much?


God tells us over and over in the bible that he will guide us down the right path, all we have to do is trust in him.


TRUST IN HIM?

It sounds so easy, trust God. The same way I trust my parents, siblings, friends, and husband. But why is it so much harder to trust God.

Think about it... We are talking about the God who created the universe, gave us all the gift of life and loves unconditionally. So why is it so hard to trust him with all our heart?

Maybe its because we can't see him or that we struggle to full heartedly follow him.

In Psalms 32:8 God says, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you."

He is leading us and teaching us where to go. And he never stops.

Gods way may not always make sense and sometimes I like to think that I know better than he does. Boy am I wrong!! I want life to make sense, but then I realize life without God doesn't make sense. I can't have both.

Proverbs 3:5 says, "Trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

God has written a life book for each one of us and the sooner we put down the pen and stop trying to write our own book. The sooner we can trust God to write it for us.

Sometimes I find myself wishing I could pack up and go whenever God says "GO", but I'm just not that way. If you are I would love to hear how you got to that point, but for me I'm just not there yet. Change is hard for me. I dread it, even if its a good thing. I struggle just like everyone of you. We are brothers and sisters in christ and I'm on this journey with you.

  1. This encouraged me. I have a confusing relationship with God, I constantly fall away because I get so involved with my own life, and I lose track of what's really important, then all off a sudden I try and develop a relationship with God...once again. Then it happens again, I just don't know how to stay consistent in this relationship. Its a never ending roller coaster.

    1. Im so glad this encouraged you. Your not alone in this journey. I'm not in anyway perfect at being consistent, but I make it a goal everyday to be consistent in what I do. These are some things I do everyday sometimes I fail at doing some or all of them, but its okay you have new mercies everyday. Try making God constant in the little things like listening to worship music in the car, set prayer reminders, and do a bible study or daily devotion. I love she reads truth app and John Pipers daily devotional app.
