My Week

So..... This week has been interesting. I've been fighting a cold. My little guy has not felt great either. He's dealing with teething, weening, and fighting a cold. Our sleep schedule has been crazy (but better last night) and we are just in a little funky time this week. I'm not writing this post to complain at all... but more to talk about CHANGE.
Most of my life, I 've had a hard time adjusting to changes. It takes me a while to get OK with things. Some people thrive on change and look for changes. I guess I felt safest in the what was KNOWN and any changes, even GOOD CHANGE, often meant I would be entering the great UNKNOWN. I feel like God has brought me on a journey in this area and I do feel that I handle change better than I once did... but just to honest, it is harder when it's multiple changes all at once. You know? Our work has been slow and we've been praying for break thru there (see all of the posts about Supernatural Provision). I have not felt great, because of the cold, so we've been praying for complete healing and health over our family. My little 19 month old is dealing with weening, teething, the runny nose, and mom 's attempt at sticking with a sharp bed time. We've made the decision to change churches -- to help with a new church plant (more on that in another post). It's like all of the sudden there are so many changes. And not everything that changes is bad. In fact, I know that if I had a blog time machine, I could fast fwd to my blog post in a like two months.... and a lot of this would be FINE. A lot of this would be settled. And in fact, most of what is changing in my life would end up being really good!
Anyway, that's just where I am this week. I know God is faithful and He must be teaching me a lot even thru this time of transition.

I can relate somewhat. I like to be in my little box and change is often hard, but that is really how God grows me...I have to get out of my comfort zone to really allow Him to work on me.
Hope you are all feeling better soon. Weaning is hard too. Hope it is a smooth process for both of you.

I'm not a fan of the unknown either. Thank goodness our Father is unchangeable in the midst of change.

"Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:5-8

I appreciate your transparency.

Change is hard, good or bad. But without change we couldn't grow in Christ or any other area in our life.

BTW, I'm Kiesha and I can't remember just who I found through but can't wait to know you better.
Have a great weekend and I hope your little guy feels better soon.
