Carol Round on Change Doesn’t Need to Cause Fear

“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed”—Malachi 3:6 (ESV).

Change in life is a guarantee. We can fear it, ignore it, gripe about it, become anxious, or we can embrace it. I’m struggling right now to embrace a forced transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10. My thoughts are “if it ain’t broke, why change it?”

Waiting until the last minute to make the switch, I was thankful my techie brother-in-law was available to download and install the new operating system. It’s like going from crawling to walking in 60 seconds with lots of stumbling along the way.

Remaining Positive When Facing Change

Most of us don’t like to make changes unless it is something we choose. We like things to be familiar and predictable. Knowing what to expect when we wake up each morning brings comfort and peace. But life is in a constant state of change.

I’m technologically challenged and learning a new program at age 66 is something I’d rather not embrace. However, I realize the challenge is good for my brain cells. That’s the positive about my computer upgrade.

Once I’ve conquered Window 10, I’m sure I’ll discover more positive things about the new program. As I told a friend, I can’t change it, so why moan about it. Moaning about the inevitable doesn’t solve any problems. However, we usually moan the inconvenience.
