Change and/or Change

There is change deep in our pockets or change inside our purse.
But some changes are the ones that hurt, that makes our lives much worse.
Some change is momentary and we're okay with what is new
but some changes are more permanent and we don't know what to do.

Change can be a good thing, progression is the key.
Stay up to date, move forward, be the best that you can be.
But life takes twists and turns and uncertainty and fear
makes moving forward difficult with each passing year.

"We've always done it this way," we hear so many say.
but change is still inevitable, life is just that way.
Change can be for a season that we are passing through
but change can last a life time and we struggle with what to do.
So on our knees we need to be in prayer to trust the One
who is ALWAYS there in crisis, our Father, Spirit, Son.

original poem by: Norma Spiller

Prayer focus:
Pray this week for those who have changes that are difficult to overcome. Pray that their strength will come from the One who can help guide all of us to a place of peace

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, WHO DOES NOT CHANGE like the shifting shadows.

Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
