Change comes in many forms. Sometimes we ourselves seek the change. Moving into a retirement center or selecting a smaller house that is easier to care for are examples of willed changes. Moving in with grown children, using a walker or hearing aid, or no longer driving may all be examples of unwilled change.
Whether willed or unwilled, change challenges our physical energy, deep emotions, and spiritual stability. Making changes in the grace of God means looking for unexpected benefits in the most unlikely places—blessings straight from the hand of God.
