"The only thing that is truly constant in our lives, is CHANGE."
: Who Moved MY Cheese
As we take this journey in life, we sometimes come to those vistas where we like how things are... It works... and we would like to stay for a while. So we settle in and make plans to stay awhile. Time goes by and we slowly begin to build a wall around our new found comfort zone. All in the effort to protect it and ensure that it will last... Meanwhile this world moves on, and we failed to remember that God has things in store for each of us. Yet, we are in this little comfort zone, that makes us feel safe. We are typically unwilling to accept change, because it threatens that feeling of safety which comes from the predictable,..the expected,..and keeping things "the same". If God is going to get us to where He wants us to be, then He has got to keep us moving. This requires change! We are all so afraid of change, yet we should be more afraid of staying the same. This is self imposed damnation. To be damned, is to stop progression. How often do we participate in our own damnation as apposed our own progression!?! If this life is about experiences and progression, then we must learn to be open and accept change. Those vistas in life that we reach...? Yes, we can stay for a short while. Yet if we stay too long, then those vistas only become plateaus, and in the end hold us back from progression.
Stay open and nimble in life! There is so much ahead, if we will only be willing to eagerly embrace the unknown! The amazing part is that other doors DO open, and life DOES go on when we decide to leave life's vistas turned plateaus. You'll find the way! Trust God, and also trust YOURSELF...You are one in the same.
