Five Minute Friday: Change

Time again for one of my favorite things! Five minute Friday linking up with Lisa-Jo and hundreds of other writers. Today’s topic is change. With how my brain is today, the result is bound to be interesting. So let’s jump right in.


Everything in life changes. It always does. It’s what this world was designed for. Changes are often the result of suffering. No matter the type of suffering, whether it’s major suffering, or minor suffering, change is bound to happen once we’re through it.

Change. I feel it coming around me. There’s a sense of impending change in the air around me. No matter where I look, it’s there. While I’m sure there will be good change, I can’t say that it will all be good change. Some of it may be more challenging and hard to deal with before I am able to see the sweetness that comes out of such change.

Change is a scary word, to many people. Myself included. Perhaps the scariness of it is the fact that we don’t know what will happen at the end of it. At least, not completely.

Uncertainty. Yes. That is what we can see coming from change. Uncertainty of where we’ll end up. If we’ll get there in time. If the change will ultimately be beneficial for us in the long run.

However, we are promised in Scripture that if we trust wholeheartedly in Him, then we will never be disappointed in the change. In all reality we are changed into a new creation each day. Whether it’s all at once or little by little He his changing us to be the person that He created us to be. The person that He needs to complete His will for this world.

The question isn’t what will the change bring about, because if we’re looking to Him, we know it will all result in beauty. Maybe the real question is, will we trust Him enough to open our hearts up to the change He has for us? Believing that His will is greater than our desires? Giving Him the complete control to change the traits in us that only He knows needs to be changed in order for us to be more like Him?


There we have it friends. Now, won’t you jump on over to Lisa-jo‘s place and join us in this challenge? It’s simple, just write for 5 minutes flat. Without worrying if it’s just right or not. No editing, no back tracking. Just a raw, heart felt 5 minutes.

  1. Visiting from 5MF. You are so right. Change is hard… very hard when we try to go it alone. But when we lean on God and trust in His plans, change becomes an adventure. Still hard, but not nearly AS hard.

  2. Hi, sweet friend!
    Trust is the issue. It’s always amazed me that we trust Him with our eternity, but the day to day can be up in the air. Thank you for your transparency, my friend!!
    Have a blessed evening…

  3. Oh, trust…such an easy word to talk about but so hard to do. And I’m not sure why because the result of trusting is always sweet, just like you said!
    striving with you, friend. to lean in hard…cling tight. trust Him with my everyday….

    Great 5 minute write!!
