Change {Guest Post}

I have had the great honour of being able to team up with a fellow blogger through a group called Solidarity Sisters, run by Susannah Kellogg of Simple Moments Stick.

Today, Kimberley has a post to share with us. Enjoy!

Change. It’s not something that I handle very well at all. I have memories of me crying because plans changed. Change is just not in my DNA.  Despite this, change has been a constant in my life the last few years. I finished high school and moved to university, I then got accepted into a college in America so I moved there, I then ended up moving back to Australia and since then have moved house 6 times in 2 years. Somehow, I have survived these changes.

Life is all about change. I’m not the same person I was 10 years ago, I’m not even the same person I was 1 year ago.  And this is a good thing. God has been working in my life and changing me. For some reason, this doesn’t bother me in the same way that plans changing does.

I like to be in control and I think that might be why I don’t like change. Change usually happens when something is out of my control like weather or other things popping up. My lack of adjustment or flexibility when it comes to change is a sin.

It has taken me years to realise this. I want to be in control and if I’m not in control then I can’t handle it. By doing this I am taking control away from God. Something I shouldn’t be doing. When I became a Christian I was saying that I was giving God control of my life, yet when I can’t handle change or when I want control of something I’ve taken that control off of God. I remember someone telling me that once I have given something to God it will hurt more if I try and fight it back from Him.

I am on this journey of learning to handle over control to God and not fight Him when he takes a different route than I do. It’s a slow journey but I am still moving forward.
