This last week has been a week of change for me. Our company announced some structural changes in our leadership which led to us having a new president of our division, new marketing personnel and also a new director of the department I work in.
My personality though, is one that RESISTS change.
I like things to go as they are supposed to go.
Status quo is good for me.
So how did I react?… With excitement!
I am looking forward to our new leadership leading us as well as the new perspectives that these new folks will bring to our business.
It has taken me awhile to be able to have this type of attitude when confronted with change. I have been working on it for years. Many people think that when change comes only bad things will happen, when in reality change is what causes us grow and to become better – at what we do and who we are.
For a Real Christian Businessman, we need to lead by example when it comes to changes like this.
You see people are always watching us. Especially in the workplace. They want to see what our attitude will be when changes like this happen. What will we say? How will we react? Will we join the negative train like most people do? Or will we be a person emulating positive persepctives and hopefullness?
I want to encourage you today to think about how God wants us to react. He knows that times of change can sometimes bring anxiety, but He also knows that if we cast our cares on him, He will take care of us!
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalm 55:22 (NIV)
I realize it is easier said than done – but it can be done. Try for just today to be one of those that handles changes that come your way by getting onto the positive train – the train that honors God.
