We pray for change. We dread change. We desire change. Change happens when we seek it and when we avoid it. It’s a part of life.
Some change is desired; other change is avoided. This change in our lives is celebrated! Our youngest daughter is getting married in September. We couldn’t be happier about it. Her fiance is amazing. He is the kind of man a momma hopes for her daughter.
But even this change will not be without hardship. Marriage is difficult. It requires a decision every day to say, “I choose you!” It isn’t about warm, fuzzy feelings or a continual high. Love and marriage is a decision.
How about you? Did you make a change that initially seemed like a good idea and later turned out to be quite difficult? That doesn’t mean it wasn’t right. It means that change is difficult, even when it’s the right thing to do.
I am always encouraged when I remember that God doesn’t change. His character is consistent; his purposes are true.
I am the Lord, I do not change.Malachi 3:6
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.Hebrews 13:8
In a world where change seems to happen daily – some really good, like Katlyn and Zac, and some really difficult – take comfort in the assurance that our Father never changes. His character remains steadfast and he loves you deeply.
And we begin another week…
