In my experience, change can be difficult. I didn't like change as a kid growing up. While there are times when change is still difficult, I look around and see a need for change. Whenever we embark on changing the status quo to improve things around us, we will likely encounter resistance.
The resistance we encounter can be disheartening. In fact, those mounting the resistance can be downright cruel. Fortunately, we do not have to buy in to what others say or do. As I recently learned, "Don't push because there will always be an equal and opposite reaction. Instead, learn to dance!" If we try to puch on our own, the resistance will only push back stronger. However, if we rely on God, He will teach us to "dance" so we can move around the resistance toward success. He will also protect us behind His shield as we move in His direction. We can bring about positive change by following God's footsteps and relying on His protection!
Follow God as He teaches you to dance around the challenges and protects you from harm!
Thank You for teaching me and protecting me. Help me to hear, learn, and follow You each and every day. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
