A constant in our lives with God is change. God does not change but our world and our lives certainly do. A cursory reading of Scripture tells the story of how people change throughout salvation history. Up and down, here and there, away and back, sinning and returning, sick and healed, dead and risen. We humans are guaranteed tumultuous changes through the years and each person's life is a tale of change. What, or rather who, offers stability? Where is the constant in life? Certainly not insurance companies, more bank accounts or investments though those can offer some comfort. Women and men in the Bible, great or lesser saints, millions of believers through eons of faith have found the very anchor in life to be the living God and God alone.
We need courage to persist and prosper in life. The often painful part of change and transition is that we lose a familiar part of our lives. We grieve, we miss something or someone, we hurt. And unless we acknowledge that grief and give it its due course, there will be no peace in our hearts. Remember the last time you moved or were transferred? It hurts all of us to undergo change, especially those moments of transition we do not choose but are given to us. Death is the most painful and shattering example. continue reading . . .
