The Song That Changed My Life, Vol.37
In the words of Joel Osteen:
Change is one of the most difficult things that we face. But change is inevitable
One reason we don't like change is we get comfortable where we are. We get used to our friends, our job, the place we live. And even if it's not perfect we accept it, because it's familiar. And what happens is, because we're not willing to change, we get stuck in what God used to do, instead of moving forward into what God is about to do
Just because God's blessed you where you are doesn't mean you can just sit back and settle there. You have to stay open to what God is doing now. What worked five years ago may not work today. If you're going to be successful, you have to be willing to change.
If you don't get rid of the wrong friends, you will never meet the right friends.
This is exactly what this next song is about, changes.
I first found out about this artist two years ago living in Chicago, I was in a crossroads in my life - wanting change. Even during times of crisis, change is a necessity. We have to realize looking back at a good time doesn't mean we're happy actually during that point in our lives.
