Sometimes it’s easier to believe that an annoyance comes from being confrontational, “What’s eating you, or what’s your problem?” We often ask that person and do so without genuine concern, asking because it’s polite. I cannot point the finger at anyone regarding that because there have been times in recent years I wasn’t as sensitive as I should have been. Life’s seasons change, and eventually, its lessons teach us to see those who got glossed over and where the gap that created distance narrows because it affects us. The shoe on another foot has become ours to wear, and our approach and perception change for the greater good of the group we all are.
I raised my hand as one not wanting to be too involved in the problems of others because of being busy in the chase for what was considered getting ahead, and as a result, I dropped the ball. But life taught me as I grow in the things of God that knowing Him and recognizing the basic principles of the fragilities and predispositions, I, too, can still evolve to change with meaning. It’s here that change is inevitable. Genesis 1:26, God said, “He makes man in His image, likeness, giving us dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, livestock and all other earthly things, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” The scriptures reminded us that we have dominion, which is powered to create access and make adjustments necessary for fulfillment. By being reminded of that–whatever might beset us, the power lies with us to turn it around, which starts with not allowing short-term problems to morph into long-term ones’ based on our responses. I’ve learned that caring for others is caring for myself because what goes around will eventually return. Life is a cycle, and change is ever-present. Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day.
