I believe change is good. I know what is familiar is comforting for some. In a world that is constantly changing, sticking with the familiar is safe and easy. It’s also easy to avoid change because it takes effort to react to what’s new. Some fear change. What if I don’t like the change? What if I can’t manage in the new situation?
The good news is we don’t face change alone. God is with us. God sustains and strengthens us. God is doing new things every day. Our God is in the business of change.
