Change Is...Loss?

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Yeah, we know--weep, laugh, mourn, dance, blah, blah ,blah, we got it.  We know life is full of constant and continual change. 

Not all change is bad, but all change requires adjustment. As wonderful as a change may be—love, children, adventure, purpose—something has to be let go to make way for the new. 

Harry Levinson said, “All change is loss, and all loss must be mourned.”  I’ve been feeling that a lot lately.  I’ve not had any “major” changes, but I’ve had enough over the past few years that I feel…unsteady.  Too many people have come and gone from my life.  Projects have been started, and a few have even been finished.  Passions have been discovered, pursued, and some let go.  My boys are growing MUCH too fast.  It feels more like a time OF everything than a time FOR everything.  I know this is a period of transition and good things are coming but the loss is still there.

Fortunately, I know The One who fills loss.  I know The One who heals broken hearts and redeems relationships. I know The One who is rock steady in shifting sand.  I know The One who lights the way and holds my hand as He walks it with me. 

Change and loss will come, but He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  (Hebrews 13:8)
