The year keeps Marching on with so much change! Change for my family, change at work, change at my church. And it’s all good things! My hubby knows I spend a good amount of time planning the things I do, whether it be for my family and my home or outside the home. The other day he actually said to me “I’d welcome more organization into my life.” This nearly knocked me off my feet. Not because my organization doesn’t help him already, but because he doesn’t always want to be a part of the planning process. Loves the outcome, though!
So we talked about tasks we’d share to keep the house in order, spend time with the kids, work on our financials goals and a ton of other things! I was floored in the best possible way. AND he acknowledged that I would try to include him in the past and that he wasn’t always motivated to participate but that he realized the importance of planning and organizing yourself to be your best self. Just wow!
This happens in many households, at work and in your relationships…reluctance to change. Unwillingness to go through the process of change. Physical walls can be torn down, but if people are unwilling to change, the wall exists in their mind.
You’ve heard it said that ‘Change is the only constant.’
When the people of Israel (yes, in the Bible) transitioned to Canaan, they were told by Moises that they’d making a journey to the Promised Land. The land that God had promised to their forefathers. A land that flowed milk and honey. It sounded fabulous! They were so excited! But after they exited Egypt and spent all that time in the desert, they clearly understood that this was not going to be an easy transition. But when is change ever easy?
I think the key is what my hubby stated earlier. It’s about welcoming change. Versus fighting what is inevitable, open the door to change and embrace it. ‘Tis the season for it!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens
