Read “When You Feel Overwhelmed”—Quiet Spaces, pages 106-108.
Where you have seen dramatic change in your lifetime? How has it affected your life?
Then and Now
Write about a typical day at home when you were in elementary school. Now compare it to a typical day in your life today. Use the headings Values, Attitudes, Societal Expectations, and Relationships to contrast the two lifestyles. Reflect on which changes were positive and which changes negatively affected you.
Praying for Perspective
God of the constant, help me to understand the world in which I live. I particularly worry about (those difficult changes). Fill me with the assurance that when all else changes, you do not. (Continue to pray for specific changes in the world that affect you).
What positive changes have occurred in the world during your lifetime? How do they affect you?
