“The Lord said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:1-3, NLT)
Dear Father in heaven, when we sit in change, thank you for giving us the freedom to straight up give up.Thank you for your everlasting love that marks my life with countless examples of your faithful care. And thank you for your unchanging loving-kindness that encourages me to keep a flexible spirit through change’s seasons. When I start to believe this change may do me in, may I look at the life of Abraham and remember you don’t send change alone: you send it with the promise of blessing. May I believe that this change is one way you open doors meant just for me. In the hopeful name of Jesus, amen.
