Seven Days of Change (A Flash Devotional)
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..."
Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
While our Heavenly Father is an unchanging God, change is inevitable for us as we travel the earth in our fleshly bodies. And since it is inevitable, it would behoove us to learn to embrace it rather than resist it. However, change is uncomfortable. And who wants to be uncomfortable? But there is often a blessing in being uncomfortable. As a matter of fact, the most wonderful blessings are often found beyond your comfort zone. Oftentimes, we fight change when God is merely trying to position us for a miracle or, at the very least, a blessing.
In this short devotional, Author Adrienne Thompson shares insight about change and highlights the importance of obedience to God using her own personal experiences.
This is the first in her Flash Devotional Series and her first stand-alone, nonfiction title.
