THE SAME YESTERDAY,TODAY, FOREVER!
Wow, how much of our life has changed in the past year... Moving away from dear friends and family, leaving a job and home, the comforts of life as we knew it. Now a year later, new city, new friends, new home (somewhat smaller:), new job as a student, we could never have anticipated how God would take care of us and bless us in this journey of coming to the seminary. Now fast forward a year... more unknown... Another new home, where will it be, what will it be like? What kind of ministry will Greg be serving in? God knows, that brings such comfort. He is in control of our future and has a plan and place for us.
When I looked at the pictures above I thought of how much of life is one change after the other. Our sweet little Anna with her Papa, and now our still sweet, kind of silly Anna with her little brother Eli. Boy do they change quickly. With all of the changes in our lives and with the uncertainty of the future I find great comfort in the verse from Hebrews 13:8 ...Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Also James 1:17 says that Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who DOES NOT CHANGE like shifting shadows. He does not change, He is the one sure, constant thing in life. Other people change, kids change, our health may change, our bodies, where we live, where we work... but He never changes, He is always the same. Every character trait that God has ever possessed, will always be. In the midst of life's journey He is always there, just the same. He is ALL we need for every situation and every season.
