STOP AND THINK – If we can recognize that change and uncertainty are basic principles, we can greet the future  . . . with the understanding that we do not know enough to be pessimistic. (Hazel Henderson, a futurist and author)

A lot of people fear change and uncertainty, but as Henderson suggests, they are basic principles. We can’t avoid them, so we must know how to face them in order to move forward rather than be stuck where we are indefinitely. Instead of fearing the unknown future, prepare for it with a clear understanding of what we do know.

 For I am convinced that . . . neither the present nor the future, nor any . . . nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:38, 39)
