Change and Faith

This past Sunday we had a special stake meeting (group of congregations) that redefined the geographical borders of all the congregations within it. Big change for a lot of people. As a result all of the talks centered around being accepting of change.

We as a family have been thinking about this a lot as we move forward in life so I wanted to add a scripture I have been thinking about in this respect (3 Ne 13:25-34; emphasis is mine):
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. 
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient is the day unto the evil thereof.
Trusting in the future is the most difficult type of faith. Especially when things don't seem to be going to plan.
