Changes Will Come

The one thing we can count on in life, is change, and now that I am getting "older" and my six children have all moved out and have their own homes, I find myself thinking more about the constant state of evolving. It's my plan to move (evolve) toward a deeper spiritual life.

There was always change in my life, as an Air Force wife and mother of a large family; I thought back then that I handled it pretty well. But now that my later life seems to be rolling along at such break-neck speed, life's changes seem bigger and more significant. Societal changes are also taking their toll on all of us; changes in the economy, in our culture and in daily global events, are giving us cause for tremendous stress and concern. Our faith, our endurance, and our wisdom are always being tested.

So what can we do? The answer, of course, is to find the center of our belief system through peaceful time alone with the Creator; stay calm and know that God is in control, not only in our lives, but His entire Universe. Believe that His plan is perfect and that faith and love are the only things that will endure. Build on these two--faith and love.

I have found the Holy Spirit is sensitive and is only found in that calm place within our soul. I am going to allot extra time to be with Him in quiet solitude and peace and be an activist in my search for deeper spirituality. I will remember to keep my heart open to His promptings and the things that really matter, which are fellowship with Him, love and doing right toward others. Change is a certainty...let His Divine change be in me.
