CHANGE.....does it make you Thankful?

Lynn has hosted this months Thankful Thursday posts and she has done an amazing job! Thank you Lynn! I love that we are allowed to meet different people who host this wonderful meme. So please go here to see all the Thankful Hearts for this week. This week our theme is CHANGE

When our children are in school the teacher may ask....Have there been any changes in your childs life that may cause them to behave differently than normal.

When we go to the doctor they might ask ~ Have you had any change in your weight, or changes in your life that might affect your health

Changing jobs affect us, changing locations affect us

Lets face it CHANGE if most people were honest is NOT a WELCOME thing!

When the Lord brings a change into your life do you welcome it or do you fight it? Do you embrace the change KNOWING it is for your own good and possible for the good of your children as well?
For me and my family I can tell you that change is hardest for the men in my home. My husband just HATES it and well, so does my son. Do I think it is a man thing? NO. I don't exactly like change but I have learned over the past few years that if I truly will acknowledge a change is taking place and seek the Lord then going through it doesn't have to be as hard as I have been known to make it in years past.

Thank you Lord for the change in Brians job and for giving him strength along the way.

Thank you Lord for the change in my job, allowing me to be home full time, able to spend the summer with Dad and free from the stress of having to work! YOU Lord KNEW this was coming and I didn't.

Thank you Father for loving me and being patient with me while I fought this, cried over leaving my job and my ministry! Thank you

Thank you for the kids changing schools this year, it has proven to be an amazing peaceful and Joyful time

Thank you
Lord that while America is calling for Change that YOU FATHER are the SAME - yesterday, today and forever more. YOU FATHER are the ONE and ONLY constant in our lives.

Love and Blessings!



Well-written post!


You are right. Change often comes with a temper tantrum. We do not always embrace it. Thank you for reminding us to look at change in a different way with a much more open and receptive heart.
Blessings, andrea

Change is often hard but how we handle it and knowing that He is ultimately in charge of the change sure does make it easier. I love that verse. Jesus Christ the Same...Yesterday, today and forever. He never changes! Beautiful thankful list of change.



What a great post about change! There is so much to be said for the blessings that come when we are willing to accept that change!

I too, look forward to the newness that change brings and fall is the perfect time to reflect on those things.

What an awesome post Loren! There is one thing that is for sure in this world, it is always changing in every way. And we do have to accept it! But God, He most definitely does not change!!!! He is the only thing that we can put our full trust and build the foundation of our lives upon!!! Amen!


God bless you, and the beautiful way you handle the changes in your life.


Hi Loren,

This is an excellent post. You intrigued me thinking about how men deal with change. My husband would be like yours. Interesting... I wll ponder and pray about this.

Well done and well said. Thank you.. Thank you for sharing your praises this month with me. Love you. Lynn
