Thankfulness Day 11- Change

Today I am thankful for change. I really do not like change or the pain that sometimes come with change, but I appreciate the growth that change allows. 

Over the past few months I have had some changes in my life, some good some not so good. I had some drastic changes at work that really got me down. Immediately following the changes at work David and I found ourselves feeling that our time at our current church was coming to an end. We were torn between changing or staying with what we had grown stagnate with. During the change process I was upset, unhappy, and discouraged. The changes with both work and church were hard, but in the end I have grown and find myself in a much better place.

Most people dread and even fear change. It is so easy to focus on negative ways change may impact us, that we don’t focus on the good that may occur.  I think that when we face change we need to do it head on and try to focus on the positive aspects of our lives.

What are you thankful for today?
