Worrying About Changes

I know how absolutely pointless it is to worry about things, but when changes enter the scene, worry is close at hand. What if we're making a mistake? Things are okay right now, what if we make a change and suddenly things become bad? What will happen to the kids? To our schedules? To....?

I'd like to be able to see change as an opportunity, a God-ordained step in a much greater plan, and while I suppose I really do believe that, it seems that something goes awry in the channels between heart and head. One extreme takes over, and then I'm either consumed with worry (and dread), or suddenly I'm too attached emotionally and can't bear the idea of changing anything. When I was a child, I remember thinking how great it would be to be a grown-up, because they had everything figured out.

He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in Him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Trust in the Lord always, for in the Lord, Jehovah, is your everlasting strength.
Isaiah 26:3-4 

I'm going to meditate on this TRUTH all day and weekend long. Thank you, God, for your promises and your guidance. Thank you for your provision and your tender heart towards me, especially at the times when I am least deserving in the world's eyes. Thank you for giving me the gifts, talents and passions I have so that I can play my crucial part in this Great Love Story of Yours. I love you so much!
