Just a thought to help start your week.
Fall is in the air. Temperatures are slowly dropping. Even the warm water in the pond has a mist settled over it because of the cooler air. The colors of the leaves are changing, and everyone I meet on the street seems to have a new spring in their step, similar to the one they get when winter has finally disappeared and warmer weather arrives.
So, if a change in seasons can be so beautiful, so uplifting, so encouraging, why are we so scared of changes in our lives?
Jobs change. Families change. New little ones arrive while others have gone on to leave us behind for a little while. These changes can be scary, or at least make us uncomfortable, so we dread the changes.
Isaiah 40:8 tells us that “the grass withers and the flowers will fade away, but the Word of our Lord will stand forever.” While the uncertain ever-changing world spirals all around you this week, hold close to the fact that God’s Word will never change. When He tells you He loves you, He means yesterday, today, and forever. When He promises to walk beside you, guide you from ahead, and push you from behind all at the same time, believe it!
God is good. God is love. That doesn’t change. Try to be the one who provides stability in your circle this week. Folks need to see “no change” for a change!!
Just a thought.
