Growing in Times of Adjustment

…Do not be afraid, for I am with you….

–Genesis 26:24 NIV

A chiropractor would say an adjustment helps align the spine, bringing health to the whole body. A bank would say an adjustment is what’s needed to balance the books. Teachers would say it’s the time needed to get used to a new schedule. A boss would say adjustments are part of everyday life in the office. At some point, you may have to adjust the time you wake up, health habits, or the way you communicate.

There are pains that come with adjustment. It’s not about watching the clock, waiting for the next adjustment to come. Rather, it’s about how you adjust to each season of life. There is beauty in every season.

Whatever you’re going through today, whether an easy season or challenging, look for growth opportunities. God promises that your nights won’t last forever and joy comes in the morning. He’s growing you in the times of adjustment. Be open to the pruning process. You’re growing more than you know.

Prayer Focus

  • Pray that God would help you make the necessary adjustments in life.
  • Ask God to help you to have a thankful heart.
