I Love Running! (When I'm Done)

watering plants {thoughts: change}

This week I have had the idea of change on my mind. Humans are creatures of habits, we like our routines.  I am no exception.  I love having a daily routine that I know I can depend on.  But at the same time, I sometimes look forward to change.  To the idea of something new, that can be better, improvement.  Our lives are always changing.  We weren't created to stay the same person we were yesterday.

However, with change comes that feeling in my stomach.  The one where I wish everything would get settled out to a normal routine.  I don't like the feeling of being unsettled and not knowing.  I have comfort in believing thateverything is going to happen ccording to God's will, but I still can't help but feel a little anxious about what is happening right now.  I am caught up in the turmoil and tossing around of life in my daily activities, still trying to desperately distract myself from my thoughts.

This morning as I was driving, i kept asking God to be with me as I go about the day and through the week when it hit me: I had been praying for God's will to be done, but I had not prayed for comfort as I get there. I was so stuck on the thought of getting to the end, I forgot all about the journey.  Things will constantly be changing in my life and it is the process of change that changes me for better, not just the outcome of the change.
