Spin Cycle

Wednesday, May 30

Read

Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Think

“Change. Conflict. Growth. It’s the spin cycle of success!”

CHANGE. Some people love it, some hate it, but regardless of how we feel about it, change happens to everyone.

But, did you know there is a cycle of change that can make it worth the pain?

Change – Conflict – Growth

When change happens, we experience conflict because change produces discomfort, uncertainty, even fear.

The questions is, how do we respond to the conflict? We can let it stop us in our tracks and resist the change. Or, we can trust God’s promise that he is with us and equips us to work through the conflict to experience growth.

God can use change to bring great things into our lives, if we work through the conflict to get to the growth.

What change are you experiencing – a health crisis, a relational issue, a career move, or simply a new phase of life? Remember, God is with you in the conflict! So, keep going to experience the growth that comes through tackling change with God.

Act

Write down the spin cycle of success along with today’s verse then put it somewhere you will see it. When you feel the conflict of change, look at your card and remember that God can lead you through the conflict to experience great growth.

Pray

Heavenly Father, thank you for the promise to be with me. Sometimes the change that happens in life can feel overwhelming. Help me to remember to be strong and courageous because you will be with me and have something great in store for me.
