Take Heart, God Never Changes

Change.  Do you like it or hate it?  Either way, the only constant in life seems to be change.  Change careers.  Change homes.   Change cities.  Change your clothes.  Change your interests.  Change the color of your wall paint.

Yesterday I spent part of the day helping my dad load up a semi trailer full of boxes as he and my mom prepared to embark on the newest adventure in their lives.  They are moving up to what used to be called The Cabin, and will now become their house.  My mom took a new job up north and my dad is hoping to retire soon after their house sells.

This is a big change not only for them but for our entire family. Papa and Nana will be farther away.  My brother won't be able to drive over and mooch lunch anymore!  Christmas and Easter and special days will look a little different now.  The change will be hard at times.  However, we know the this is the place God has been leading them for some time, and it is a change that will bring them delight and happiness as a couple.

 Change is hard but here's the good news.  Our God in heaven never changes.
  • Numbers 23:19 - God is not man, that he should lie, nor a son of man that he should change is mind.  
  • Malachi 3:6 - For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. 
  • James 1:17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
 We can find courage and strength in times of uncertainty and change knowing the God is always the same.  His strength, love, kindness, righteousness, and grace never waver.  His well never dries up, and he will sustain you come whatever may, as you lean into and place your faith in him.
