Have you ever heard the saying,"Change, it is a comin?" There has been so much change over the years that have affected our lives. We use cell phones instead of good old fashioned get togethers to keep in touch. We live in a fast world where everything has to be done quickly. We are always in a hurry and never have time to really enjoy ourselves. But what happens when something changes in our live? Are we prepared for a job change? If we have an argument with someone, do we let it affect out future relationships? God is ready to change us but are we ready for the change?
When you go through a broken heart, a sickness or even a job change, God is right there with you. "He will never leave us nor forsake us." That is good news to know He is always right there, to encourage us and bring us comfort and strength. The author tells us that "adapt, improve, observe and connect are fundamental approaches that will allow you to respond appropriately to change and to plan appropriately for transition."
God wants us to get excited about change even when you feel like the trial you are going through is hard. He wants us to expand our vision, in Jeremiah 29:11 it says, "for I know the plans I have for you , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." I can remember pastors saying," God will never give you more than you can handle ." Sometimes we wonder if we can handle the trials, but be encouraged that He will never leave you, nor forsake you."
The author explains in detail the nine signs that your trajectory is changing. We will have new people come into out path. There will be new problems as you transition into trajectory. God will take you to new places and give you new responsibilities. As we begin to experience new perspectives , He will prepare us and give us new priorities. I'm excited about the new passion we will have and that He will give us provision as we move in the right direction that God has for us.
I became so engrossed in the book, I forgot about everything around me. I felt a new stirring in me and a new excitement that I haven't had in a long time. The author writes with passion as he tells us to take action. It is time to prepare ourselves to hear from God. Don't let others discourage you as you hear from God. You are the only one who knows what He says to you. "You must give up your past in order to possess your future."
I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
