Winston-Churchill-1“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” – Winston Churchill

Seriously Winston?! Change is…hard, invigorating, hard, refreshing, hard, sad, stimulating, hard, scary, but W.C. had a point in the above quote. I do not believe for one moment, that any of us could attain perfection no matter how many times we change, for example I changed my outfit four times the other night and still hated it when I saw pictures of myself posted on Facebook, humph! guess I proved you wrong Mr. Churchill!

I do agree though, with the Prime Minister, that change can improve us if we let it. Recently, I went through the biggest change of my life, excluding puberty, marriage and the effects of growing old- damn you grey hairs and wrinkles! Now I thought I was prepared for this change, I made a decision that I thought was a good decision and it had an effect that, though I knew was a possibility, I did not think would happen, but it did and WHAMMO! Change.

The details aren’t important, what is important is how I THOUGHT this change would affect me and how the change really affected me. I. Had. Peace. I HAVE peace. Serious peace. The Bible says-  “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

You see I trust God. With the good, with the bad, and even the ugly. (Like the outfit I wore the other night! Ha!) During good times it’s easy to trust Him, but it’s during the hard times that our faith grows the most.

So here is the simple lesson I learned recently- without the change I experienced, I would not have experienced such overwhelming peace. It’s this unexplainable peace that has caused my faith to grow, and I wouldn’t go back and have it any other way.

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
