Dragging My Feet

Saturday, May 09, 2009

Is it okay to be tired of change? Is it okay to wish for a little space of familiarity to call my own? Is it okay to want to have more than four available shirts to choose from?

Change does happen, though. Outside, inside, we all change. What happens when two people change in different directions? Does the relationship continue, or do you simply change the way you relate to each other? Do you change the things you talk about?

Change can be good, this we know. Spring is here, weather is warming, trees are budding. Good changes. New information brings up new questions. It is good to question. The answers, though... those require more change, don't they? What do you do once a new seed has been planted, once you know something new... ignore it? Purge it? Nurture it? Is it a weed, or is it a rose?

What if it's a rose to you, and everyone else is pretty sure it's a weed?

Why must change make life so difficult sometimes?

Is it okay to be tired of change?

  1. We totally get that. Change can be painful, especially when it effects relationships. And you'll find the more you ask questions and dig, the fewer answers you'll unearth, rather more questions! But sweetly comes the satisfaction and blessings when you walk in obedience. We're praying for you!

  2. Amen to Dawn's comments! Although walking in obedience is not always the easiest path, it ultimately will give you the reward you are seeking.

  3. It's very okay to get tired of any thing any time.

    Change. Yes. A biggie in my life as well.

    I know the feeling where sometimes you just want to be able to lie back in the grass watching the sky and clouds and enjoy where you're at instead of having to buckle under yet more change.

  4. May God give you the rest you need to not just cope but to thrive.

    And be patient with yourself. Change is hard.

  5. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6

  6. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments. Sometimes I just feel like I am getting stretched too thin, that too much has happened, and I get tired. Your words and support all really helped me pull through to a better attitude last weekend.

    I am so blessed by you. Yes, you.
