How many times in your life have you just wished everything would stay the same, and you could get off the carousel of change? I know I have felt that way, and have longed for times of stability and contentment. But, really, if you have felt like me, I now believe we are viewing change all wrong.
In her book Girl Meets Change: Truths to Carry You Through Life’s Transitions, author Kristen Strong lays out the truth and logic behind biblical understanding of change. Not only does she site examples that the reader can fully relate to, Mrs. Strong provides strong messages to remind us that God is in control of our lives, and we are to accept change as a blessing. The purpose of this book is not to tell you the typical answer of “don’t be stressed, change is good for you”! The purpose is to help you see that while change is stressful and disconcerting, it is also a part of Gods will for our lives. Only by following the places He is taking us will we be able to fulfill His plan for our lives. Mrs. Strong helps us to understand the verses and stories from the bible that remind us to listen to Gods plan, follow His direction, and accept where He is taking us.
This is an excellent book for a young woman just starting out, but can also encourage us older readers in the changes we face throughout our lives. Reading Girl Meets Change can be a guide to help any woman follow God’s direction and remember that He will never bring us to a place He will not bring us through.
