Change. Changes in life can sometimes be unwanted, whether it is a friend moving away, the transition from year to year in school, or maybe for some going from school to a graduate.
with every passing year, your life changes. Change can be scary.
When you realize that you are growing up, then it seems like you can't slow down. For my entire life, I've thought how old high school students were. I was in awe of them and thought they were so mature. I couldn't imagine being one! When my sister was in high school, I thought the same thing. Now that I am in high school, I don't feel the same way anymore. I want to hold on to today and not think about the day when I am out of high school, married, etc. Maybe those days won't come, which makes it important not to borrow trouble from tomorrow. I don't have to worry about what is going to happen, but I still dislike change.
Something my dad said once was this, "The only thing that stays constant about life is change."
But remember as you go through change, no matter what it is, that we get to follow Jesus and shine for Him in whatever place He takes us.
He has a plan for every different point in our life, no matter if that means a lot or a little bit of change. Look to our Creator for peace that only He can grant.
Ecclesiastes 3:1For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
2a time to be born, and a time to die;a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3a time to kill, and a time to heal;a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4a time to weep, and a time to laugh;a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, ad a time to cast away; 7a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
