Life is a never-ending cycle of changes, both good and bad. One never truly has the opportunity to sit still or get comfortable in one setting or with one situation. We move from one house to another, change jobs, lose loved ones, and enjoy the birth of new family members. There are new people in and out of our lives on a daily basis, be it people we work with, attend church with, live next door to, or meet in various places like the mall or grocery store.
All change brings a certain amount of stress, whether it is the good stress of a planning a wedding or the bad stress of a divorce. Feelings run rampant, emotions get over charged, and our bodies take the brunt of the stress causing fatigue and sometimes illness.
Whatever the change, one thing is consistently the same….the presence and control of God! God never changes, even when our lives and our circumstances do. He stays the same. His love is never-ending, just as the seasons of life that we experience. His grace is dependable, and will provide us the strength and patience to adapt to the changes we face each day. His mercy is reliable, helping us find healing, renewal, and restoration when change brings us to the edge of ourselves.
God is the rock amidst the sea of uncertainty. He is the steady shelter from the storms of chaos, and He is the unfailing foundation amidst the ever-changing seasons of life.
May you turn to God when change befalls you, relying on Him to meet all you needs, bring you peace, and provide you strength and endurance to make it through all the changes that come!
Like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed.
But You are the same, and Your years will not fail. ~ Hebrews 1:12
Seasons of Life
They come and go
Taking with them the old
With the promise of renewal
In our own lives
Change is inevitable
Sometimes it brings joy
Other times sorrow and pain
As circumstances change
So to do our emotions
Constantly seeking security
Relying on the unknown to aid us
Is not found on this earth
Nor is it within the starry sky
Those we meet provide only temporary solace
Only one source of peace exists
That can provide encouragement
Shower us with blessings overflowing
And give strength to endure
He was with you yesterday
He is with you now
He will be with you always
God is your unwavering serenity
