Every time there is a great change; we can feel a great shift. We are experiencing a changing of the guard as a new president takes the oval office in America. With that, there is much happening as we adjust to another shift. Let’s take a moment to examine the changing of the guard.
We see that where one can be in place, at some point, another can be replaced by someone else. Like it or not that is what we see in history and in current events. Whether we agree with the shift can be up to us to decide, of course and how we react will be our own choice. Point is, there is a changing of guard taking place. It is at some point that one must see that I may not agree with all of this but I will have to live with it for the time until the next shift occurs.
Overall, an exchange of this magnitude can cause major impacts on all of us. I believe an important aspect to all things is prayer and we are responsible to take time to pray and ask God for direction and protection over leadership, our country and ourselves. You see it makes a great difference whether God is allowed to lead the shift or if He is left out on purpose.
How have you responded to the shift, “Changing of the guard?” Do you find it important to pray and adjust accordingly? Or are you quick to complain? It is important to keep in mind that we can ask for God’s protection and direction with each “Changing of the Guard.” Thank you for taking moments with me.
