I face change with courage and faith.
Those things that I see, hear, and feel are never exactly the same from one day to the next. The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said that no one can step into the same river twice. Just as the water in a river is moving forward, my life is in motion as I travel onward. Seasons change, people change, and I change as I grow in understanding of life, of God, and of myself. I can prepare for such moments by living in faith. Rather than exerting effort to live in the past, I focus my energy on building upon new possibilities. I am never without a steady divine presence in my life. With God’s assurance, I face change with courage and faith.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea.—Psalm 46:2
