Changes. They come to shed the old, and this shedding provides for the new. Old thoughts and habits keep us where we are. The irony is while you may be growing, developing, or experiencing success where you are, you're not doing the same where you want to be. Your life isn't heading in the direction you want it to go--where you constantly dream of it's being. And the dream won't seem to go away. Even when you've lost sight of it or given up on it, it still lingers like an odor with a source that can't be determined.
That dream will remain unfulfilled and will continue to linger...it will continue to haunt you with glimpses of how life could be...until you embrace your times of change.
"[A song for going up to worship.] When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, it was as if we were dreaming." (Psalms 126:1 GOD'S WORD Translation)
