Change
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
Change is the one constant in life. Things are always in a state of change. In fact, if we ever want to determine if we are growing in recovery, all we need to do is look back at where we were at this same time last year. Are we still struggling with the same things we were struggling with last year? Sometimes we can put more effort into not changing than we would actually put into changing.

Change is a natural response to living our lives with Christ. If we are growing in our relationships with Christ, we are going to experience change. At times, the change might be welcomed. We enter into healthier relationships with less drama. We get a better paying job that is also more rewarding. And other times, change is difficult and even painful. Either way, change is necessary for us to progress more into the image of Christ.

Change is central to recovery. In fact, the 6th and 7th steps, right in the middle of the twelve steps, are all about being willing to change and asking God to change us. As Christians, we are new creations. The old is gone and the new is here. When we are new creations, we stop fighting change and embrace the process of change Christ has for us. In our old lives, we were terrified of change. We now understand there is a lot more to fear in not changing than there is in changing.

Father God, I know that You love me just as I am. And you love me enough to change me into being more like Your Son, Jesus. Change me and take me though uncomfortable times so that I may be more like Christ. Thank You for making changes in me and for the changes You will continue to make in me. Amen.
