Thoughts on Change

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Mahatma Gandhi

Change happened. Change happens. Change will happen.

Change is hard. Change seems impossible. Change is possible.

Change causes anxiety. Change causes euphoria.

Change can be overwhelming. Change can be just what we need.

Change is often feared. Change is also welcomed.

Change may not be what we want, and yet change may be exactly what we need.

Change moves from the past into the future. Change can make a world of difference by making the world a little different.

Change doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Change can actually be very, very good.

We are all watching change happen. We are all changing. We are all on the brink of change. We are all in need of change.

We need change that matters. We need change that makes the world a better place not just for us but for everyone. We need change that shines hope on the hopeless. We need change that shines light on the darkness. We need change that brings freedom to those in chains. We need change that amplifies love and quiets hate.

Are you ready for change? (Am I?) Will you be the change our world needs? (Will I?) What changes to you need to make? (What changes to I need to make?) When will you break from your ruts and embrace change? (When will I?)

The time for change is now. While change may be uncomfortable, it is worth it!

Be the change our world needs!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

For those of you who struggle with change, I’d encourage you to lean on God’s love which does not change.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)
