Seasons change people change and so does everything around you. The one thing that stays consistent is change. You are either ahead of change or behind change. Nothing stays the same, the very essence of life itself is changing and adapting to the environment around is one of the most critical components of staying ahead verses behind the changes themselves. One thing I do know, Is that we have the opportunity to lead change or the change will lead us. The choice to change is yours, the choice to stop change from happening is not yours. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. I encourage you to look within yourself and see for yourself the evidences of your willingness to be proactive in staying ahead of change or recognize the consequences of not surrendering your life to the ever constant change around you. If Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today and forever. Why is that we must change constantly? The image of the potter and the clay comes to my mind when pondering that question. When we are fully ready to be presented to our Lord is exactly when we can cease to change until then we must continue to learn and grow, change and adapt to each and every season of our lives. The level of reward or consequence that we receive will be based upon how you handle yourself while in these seasons of your life. Do you constantly complain? Or do you count it all Joy when you have the ability to go through this trial and come out stronger than when you entered it? Endurance and patience, long suffering are key components when a burning vision is placed inside of you. Father please bless us with grace for the moment, grace for the day. Lord I pray that you give us the grace of your amazing hands to mold us into the image in which we were created in the image of a King. Even when we fall down that you teach us to face all things with the humility of the King of Kings. For he came to serve and not be served. That we may serve a true King. You are my Lord and I will serve you all the days of my life  with my last breath I will breathe your mighty name. – Amen

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 for everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:2 a time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up;4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance;5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; A time for war, and a time for peace.
