change

Ahh, the angst of change.  Someone moved my cheese.  I am uncomfortable.  I don't like it.  I want to go back to Egypt.

We all feel this way from time to time.  Our world is changing so fast.  Dial phones that only came in black, push button phones, phones with long cords, cordless phones, big expensive cell phones, smaller phones, iphones, androids, texting, the internet, the cloud....... what is next?

Gosh, this world goes by in such a blaze of change.  War in Europe, in Israel, in Korea, in Vietnam, in Panama, in Grenada, in Bosnia, in Israel, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Ukraine.  It is enough to make a person's head spin.

My family is changing, my church is changing, my job is changing.  Everything that I knew and loved about yesterday is piled in a heap somewhere.  What can we do?

Well, we can't stop things from changing.  Nothing stays the same anymore.  Organizations that don't adapt to changing times cease to exist.  Family members that don't adjust to kids growing up and moving out just make themselves miserable. 

In the World, in the nation, in the church, and in the  family, good leaders help people be comfortable in the midst of change.  Everything is ok.  Everything is ok.  We don't have to go back to Egypt.  God is with us.  He is unchangeable.  Let's take a deep breath and put our trust in him.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

I saw a t-shirt on a nurse here in Tulsa today that seems to fit well with the sentiment of your blog today. It simply said: "It's ok. God's got this."
