As I think back upon the past year the one word that keeps running through my mind is CHANGE. Let me just say, I most deeply do not like change!

It has been a year full of changes for me and the people around me. I have fought for consistency and have lost the battle many times. We all have change in our lives.  Some days we may be shouting "Praise God!", while other times we may be crying out "Please, God!"

Whatever the day may bring, change will come. It's how we choose to handle it that matters. Will we have a Godly mindset or try to handle things on our own?

I came across this acronym for the word "changes" recently, and I really liked what it said:







Each moment contains a gift from God if we want to look for it. In Malachi 3:6 God says, "For I am the Lord, I change not."  This is so comforting to me.  With all the changes in my life, there is one constant - GOD

So Change will come. Will we walk in faith or fear? Every moment in time, if we choose to look for it, we can find a blessing. Change can be our friend, if we look for God in it.
