“Change is the only constant in life,” so the saying goes. No matter how hard you try to shut the door to change, it will always find its way to seep through the cracks. As a matter of fact, it is very important for a person to keep on changing, to keep growing, to become the better version of themselves. It is a need for us to keep on growing and become who we were created to be.
The problem with us is that we think change is scary. It is impossible to foresee what the future holds for us and for our partners. We do not know what the person we share our lives with will be like in the next couple of years. The problem with us is that we so often want a marriage that keeps growing, yet, at the same time, we are terrified of ‘change’ itself.
So how do we overcome this fear of change, for the sake of a flourishing marriage?
Love can cast out fear, because fear and love can not occupy the same space in our hearts. A wedding is a promise of unconditional love. And there is no fear in that kind of love, for an unconditional love is a promise of future love — It is a promise that, even if you go through seasons of drought, you will still show love to each other. It is a promise that, no matter what happens in the future, what changes take place, love will still prevail.
Love will always be Love. It is the one dependable constant. The future ceases to be a threat now that you have this solid anchor. Love is the one thing you can cling onto should the storm hits you. And should the winds of change frighten you, always choose to remain in love.
