Change can be scary for everyone. New ideas, new ways of doing things that we have done for years can raise anxiety levels. When I feel my anxiety levels rise, I know that I need to lean on Scripture and to thank God daily for the blessings in my life. Sometimes, we hesitate to listen to new ideas. We need to remember to thank God for women who are courageous enough to bring forth those ideas. We need to thank God for all God has done and is doing in our lives.
As hard as this is to do, lean on the words of this passage, “Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything” (Philippians 4: 6). Love each other and be open to the Spirit working in and among us! Be willing to truly listen and try new things as hard as it might be for you!
