As we look around in our world today there is evidence of change all around us. The season changes, the month changes, the year changes, the day changes and such like. Every thing has it time and every goes through a season of change, even our attitudes and our bodies. The entire creation knows that change is inevitable.
People generally are very resistant to change because there is an element of uncertainty as to how change may affect our lives, especially if we are comfortable in the position of life that we are presently. These people see change as an interference or disturbance in their life even if in reality it may bring about some benefit to them. They may be content to remain in the same old condition because and forgo the benefit because of fear of change.
Creation itself teaches us that change is a necessary requirement for progress and regeneration. If there is no change there is stagnation, no growth, no development in our life. Even in our mind we are changing our thoughts daily about many issues because our old thoughts may not be beneficial to the present age or system of doing things. If we do not change our thinking we will not be an asset or be able to positively contribute to society, our family and more so to our own individual development.
We must however be able to recognize the time and the season to effect change in our life. A good clue is when we realize that there is stagnation in our present situation or condition, this is an indication that change is necessary. The kind of change we need to make will be determine according to our circumstances. The type of change needed must be well sort out, and though out before made because change must be beneficial, it must be rewarding, it must bring about progress.
This may be your season to change, change your attitude, thinking, friends, places you visit, job, relationship, living environment, eating habits, the way you dress, the way you present yourself, your outlook of life, your hairstyle or whatever it is that is no longer benefiting you.
Stop the fear and make the change, you deserve it. Remember there is a time and a season for everything, even creation knows this well enough, if it did not I shudder to think how chaotic the world would have been.
