Weekly Verse – Change

It’s been a week of changes at work.  After having the same office for more than 16 years I moved into a new workspace.

I’ll be honest… at first, I really didn’t want to move.  I had my space. It was comfortable. It was what I knew. It was all I knew in this building, as I had occupied the same office since my company relocated there in 2001.

There was an upside to the move that had me just a little bit excited… I was moving into my own recording studio/office.  I could set it up the way I wanted.  It would also give me the freedom to schedule client recordings whenever I want without having to reserve a studio.

Another benefit to changing offices is that I was forced to finally get rid of years of “stuff” that had accumulated and was filling up my office cabinets and credenza.

Now that I’m all moved I have to say that switching offices has been a positive experience.  Purging and cleaning during the move were freeing and being in a new space has given me a creative energy and spark.

While my physical office move was happening this week there was another change taking place.  We were converting to a new “behind the scenes” computer system.

This conversion brought its’ own set of challenges but it’s also been a little exciting.  After years of using the same system, it’s been a welcome challenge to learn a new program and figure out how I can use it to get things done and be more productive.

I’m not going to lie, though… both changes have brought some frustrations too.  Through them all, I tried to remember Joshua 1:9 NIV.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go
