31 days of change :: day 5 {overwhelming change}

The whole reason why I even decided that I could blog for thirty-one straight days about "change" is because we are currently in the midst of a lot of it.

No really... like, A LOT.

Like, absolutely-paralyzing-stress-you-out-to-the-max-ridiculous-but-awesome-life-altering-overwhelming-change.

Okay, okay... maybe I'm being a tad over dramatic... but the above statement pretty accurately describes how I have been feeling lately.  We are clumsily learning how to navigate our way through the adoption process... buying & renovating a home... job transitions... financial changes... all of which feel like extremely major changes.

And they are.

But they are also extremely exciting changes.

And every single day when I start to doubt that God has a plan for us, He proves to me {over and over again} that He is faithful to take care of his children.  I am continually awestruck by His never-ending love and patience with me.  It doesn't matter how many times I fall prey to my own anxiety and fear... He consistently provides for me over and over again.

But that's the beauty of it all...  We serve a constant God, in an ever-changing world.  His promises are true forever.  No matter how overwhelming our changes feel, God's love for me is even more overwhelming.  And there is great rest in that.

 For the month of October I'm doing a 31-day series on "change."  Go here to see the full line-up of "change" posts.
