Changes and Challenges will come as quick and unexpectedly
as a Chicago winter,
Embracing you like a warm touch
or piercing you like a splinter
when patience and faith are absent,
And embracing life outside your comfort zone
can be taxing
Think for a second about the plans you made
some plans we create will be interrupted or halted
only to be changed or necessarily rearranged in proper fit
because change is always approaching and sometimes coming quick
You can’t control what happens to your life,
You will learn through time
that you have most control over what you do,
and how you react to
than some of the challenges that come for you
So to whom it may concern,
Hold onto your grace,
Life isn’t always comfortable
and things don’t always go your way,
Sometimes we settle for the ordinary
because the unknown can be scary
Sometimes we let fear take control
because it is comfortable and that’s all we know
Yet embracing change allows us to grow
And trusting in God through the challenges and the process
Reminds us that God is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow, and He knows best
He has the strength and authority to get you through any discomfort and any mess
Change allows us to stretch, elevate and spread our wings,
to venture toward new territories and experience new things
to leave comfort zones, same actions, same results and same old ways behind
Growth comes from challenges,
but transformation must start with the renewing of your mind

As always, I love to give and here are some Tools for your Journey!
I don’t have any tools to share, but I did come across this prayer on Pinterest and thought I should share it! Take time to pray this and talk to God about your fears concerning change and the unknown. Ask Him for help to embrace new seasons, trials and all, and to trust Him through it all.
Put your shoes on honey, our journeys await,
Question: Do you fear change? What changes and challenges are you experiencing this season?
