Last week there was a video on youtube of a little girl crying hysterically about her little 10 month old baby brother growing up. She repeatedly cried “BUT I DON’T WANT HIM TO GROW UP”!!!!!!!! “I WANT HIM TO STAY JUST THE WAY HE IS!!!!! I think on some level we can all relate to her emotions. I know I can!
There is something safe though in the “staying the same” but the reality is, nothing ever stays the same. Change is the ONE thing that is certain. The other thing certain is God. God never changes; He is omnipotent and unchanging. So is His love for us, its never changing and never ending.
As we walk thru life’s up and downs, challenges and joys we must remember God is only a breath away. Even in the most trying times, if I really take time to pray and listen, I can still feel the brush of God’s presence, the warm wrap of His love, the comfort of knowing He’s still in control. That fact remains, it never changes.
Hosea 6:3 Let us strive to know the Lord. His appearance is as sure as the dawn. He will come to us like rain, like the spring showers that water the land.
