Change...

Are you experiencing a lot of change in your life right now? Maybe a career change, a big move, or a child going off to college? Or maybe you aren't facing a huge change but, like me, every day seems to hold quite a few variations and challenges. See, that's what this blog is about....life of a real-life working executive mommy of a very crazy, real, and fun life! 

Change can be very unsettling and downright scary at times. Even the small daily changes tend to eat away at us and have us wishing for something predictable! Like, for example, the unexpected travel of your husband, on the day your babysitter is unavailable, your sister is out of town and all other plans from D to Z fail! I thought I was good with a Plan B and C, but, unpredictable changes interrupted that plan and I simply wasn't prepared. Well, here's how you deal with it...you pull your big girl pants up, face life in the face and call your boss begging for forgiveness! (Haha)! Okay, so maybe it didn't go quite like that, I didn't have to beg for forgiveness but it was an unexpected call, and maybe that seems insignificant compared to what you're dealing with, but for me it's still a "change" I had to deal with. 

Change can actually be a good thing! It might not seem like it at the time, but the Lord will work all things together for you good (Romans 8:28) if you love Him, trust Him and have Faith!  He will be with you through all of the changes you face. 


My point is simple. If we aren't grounded in Christ, change can send us tumbling over the edge. Even the smallest changes. Isn't it wonderful that He gives us the assurance that He will never change? He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Jesus Christ is with you always. He sees all of the unpredictable moments that creep --or slam--into your life. 

Remember that these moments have passed through His hands before He allowed them to greet you. Your attitude will play a vital role in the overarching outcome. I challenge you to take a look back at all of the things you have now that you prayed for. Then give the Lord thanks! I look at my little blue-eyed Angel and thank Him daily! 

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forget." (Hebrews 13:8) 

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! Do something kind today, be nice to others, and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

"Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be! Have a blessed day! 

Blessings,
