I’m a person who can tolerate change pretty well. I’ve always said “The one thing that is constant is change.” No matter where I work, no matter what I’ve been through, change has always been a part of it. Change has been a constant.
When my world is shaken by change, as long as I have one place that is solid to stand the change doesn’t bother me. It doesn’t matter if the changes are big or small. I can face it. I’ve been through a lot of difficult situations in my life. As long as I’ve had something solid to hold on to, I’ve been fine through the change. If things are going crazy at work, and with my kids, and with my family in general, and in the world, if things are good with my husband – I can muster through it. If things are crazy at home, and at work, and with life in general, if my routine can be the same, I can handle it.
I have realized that those times that I haven’t been okay with change is because I got my eyes off the One who is always constant. The One who is always solid. The One who I can always count on, Jesus Christ. I look back on my life and I can think of the times were things have not gone as I wanted them to. Times where I felt like everything in my life was upside down. Times where I felt there was nothing solid for me to hold on to. It was during those times that I lost sight of Jesus.
I let the circumstances surrounding me keep me from seeing the One that is always solid. The one I’ve always been able to turn to in times of trouble. The one that can always keep me grounded if I can just keep my focus on Him. It’s easy to be overwhelmed when change impacts our life, but the one thing I know is that if I can keep my eyes on Him I will never face more than He can handle.
