Change; it's a part of life right? So why are we so afraid of it? Why does it cause so much conflict? I know the standard reasons; we are afraid, we just don't want to change, we are comfortable the way it is. But if there is a better way is it not worth the effort to change? I don't want to be this way forever. I want new things, excitement! Something different. I am not a robot who does the same thing over and over.
I just finished a three day workshop with other teachers in the same content area. We were presented with new teaching methods and grading methods. There was such an uproar over change. Why? We think our way now works, and I agree it is working. But what if there is a better way?
We are like this in everything. We get in such a routine that we don't want to get out. Actually, we are so comfortable in our life that we don't see a reason to change. But what if there is a better way? What if God has a better plan than ours? Yes it may seem hard. Yes it may seem scary. The "un-known". But why not at least try, and I mean really try. Give it a chance. Instead of arguing and complaining about change, let it happen. See where it goes. Who knows, we may just like it!!
