Sometimes in life change is inevitable. We may want a particular thing to remain the same while another plan is forming that is completely out of our control. When this kind of unwanted change occurs, it can often throw us off balance. We have a set course in mind, we're comfortable where we are, and would rather deal with our current circumstance than to change and adapt to dealing with another. Feelings of shock and fear are completely natural and understood. What comes to mind when I'm faced with this form of changing is the Serenity Prayer which states, "God grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change; courage to change the things that I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
The key thing is in knowing the difference in what can be changed and what can't. If we can look at all of life's revisions twist and turns in this manner, then we would really obtain serenity. Serenity according to the Merriam Webster is the quality or state of being serene, which in essence means to be calm and peaceful. But some question how such a thing can exist when you're being jolted into unfamiliar territory.
In times of confusion when I start to see things spinning outside of my control, I tend to stop panicking, which usually comes first, evaluate what is actually taking place and imagine all possible outcomes. When I have a clearer perspective of things, it's quite easier to get a handle on my emotions verses them getting a handle on me. Those possible outcomes are then reflected upon and I find myself reasoning with myself and saying that no matter what it will be okay. Trusting that God knows what's best for my life.
If you're dealing with change in your life today and you're having a hard time accepting it, just take a step back from it and breathe. If council from a wiser more experienced source is needed, then by all means seek it. But don't become stagnant and miss out on something that could possibly lead you to a better something. We've all been there at one point and time and things seem to always have worked out in the end. Eradicate the pressure by trusting in God. He'll lead you only where He can keep you. So if you're there, you're safe. Isaiah 26:3, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."
