One Constant Thing
This last week was one that was full of events: a birthday, a funeral, and a wedding, and I've been thinking about how much our lives are always changing. Sometimes things change slowly over the years, and sometimes shockingly quick, in just a moment. Sometimes changes are planned, but oftentimes come completely unexpected. We experience joyous occasions and we go through horrific hardships. Through all of this, there is only one thing that remains forever constant. That is the love of God. He is with us through every change, every event, and every emotion we experience. Whether it is a lifechanging moment, or a tiny little detail that no one else would notice, He is with us. He brings people into and out of our lives, He has a way of using the circumstances around us to communicate His love for us, and he speaks to us through His Word and to our hearts if we are willing to listen. He is always there. He will never leave us. He is with us. I love this song sung by Mandisa that illustrates this point so well:
So, will you take a moment with me to say a simple thank you?
Adonai Eloheinu, Lord our God, Creator of the universe, thank you. Thank you for being with me.
