Embracing the Waves of Change

Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power…

EL pen Logo with heartThanks for joining me for Coffee Hour today. I’m so glad there’s you. Grab your coffee and your SOF (Strand of Faith) and let’ go finish up what we started yesterday about this subject of change.

Why is it that many of us don’t embrace change? Well, there are actually a couple of reasons: first there may be a lack of knowledge where we just don’t realize we need to change, no matter how hard a circumstance is knocking on the door of our life. What makes that really challenging is usually others can see it, but it’s not for us to point out necessarily without getting in their car and their lane and causing an emotional wreck!

And then there’s also a lack of willpower wherein we know we need to change but we simply don’t have the willpower or the motivation.  And it could be anything beginning with an attitude, a diet, an unhealthy addiction, un-forgiveness…the list could literally take up our coffee hour! Oh, how many times have we said “tomorrow”? And tomorrow never comes!

And then there’s the scare-factor: see to embrace change is counter-intuitive, especially changes that bring a lot of unknowns.

So what happens? We stay the same until not changing becomes more painful than the actual change required!

I love and agree with something Steve pointed out at the workshop on stage during our T.V. talk show with Bryan Duncan: “All of us know somewhere, maybe deep inside us, we need to change certain things about ourselves, even before life sometimes forces it upon us.  Sadly, most of the time, something drastic is required before admission and then intentional behavior can start.”

What intentional behavior needs to start with you today?  Do you need to be more committed? Are you in need of a heart check, or acknowledging a circumstance that requires change? Do you need help in negotiating through the change? Are you down on your energy, spiritually, emotionally or physically?

Look up! He’s the author and finisher of our faith; therefore it stands to reason He will guide us to and through any change…for He works ALL changes for our good and His glory according to His purpose…

Changing,
