At The Well: Change

The topic that is being discussed At The Well today is one that my life has been facing quite a bit lately. Their are good parts associated with this change as well as bad parts. To start off the good part is that it shows that my children are growing and changing in themselves. The bad part is that I do not do well with change. The best part of it all is that our Lord Jesus will stay by our sides as we lead our lives.
My son has moved out of my house and into the dorm of his college. This is very difficult for both of us because the college is several hours away so coming home is not all that easy. This forces both of us to stay in contact with each other while living life on our own. As I watch my son make new friends, new life for himself I can not help but worry about him. But as we all know worry is not good so I pray for him and myself that we will be able to accept this change and that we will strive in this change. A special verse that I often think about while in traveling through this change is:

James 1:5-If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.


  1. Change can be so hard sometimes. But, you brought up a great tool, prayer!

    Thanks for sharing!


  2. I can relate so much.

    I have come to like that scripture too in the last few months. I think with children that age you have to ask for it because you need it. It is a whole different ball game to smaller kids.

    My son has been away 3 1/2 years. He was at uni 4 hours away. He came home by bus on Fridays when he could, he had to catch another bus to the city first. He graduated a few weeks ago.

    I agree there are good and bad bits about change.

    It will get better. Not sure about the seperate lives, I haven't an answer for that yet.
