Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
“I can always trust an unknown future to a Known & Never changing God.” by Lara Casey
What comfort this is to me. In my 56+ years of life there is nothing that was never changing. Many many things changed, some were welcomed and some were painful. When I was introduced to HIM, my God, during my senior year of high school, I had no idea how this one change would effect my life. Many many changes came and went but He was the one constant there with me. I didn’t really understand all that He was doing in my life for a long time. We all have moments, defining moments, when He shows himself more fully.
First major defining moment was during the divorce of my high school sweet heart. He was reaching for me and drawing me in closer to Him. A few steps closer I became.
Then during the illness of our oldest son, God carried our boy smoothly through surgeries and treatments and ultimately healing. He provided people to surround us, comfort us, provide for us and love us through it. My trust grew stronger.
Still many changes……….. Jobs , empty nesting and the addition to a daughter-in-law.
Satan tried hard, really hard, to cause another change for us. Marriage struggles, wall building, harsh words, bad behavior and it would have been easier to say “I’m done!”. But He wouldn’t leave me, He settled in my soul through the Holy Spirit and kept me hanging on. He gave me the courage to hang on. He gave me the wisdom of how to change “me”. He held our marriage together with His love because at the time, we didn’t have much. He was steadfast and never changing in His plan for us. I felt His presence and found the knowledge in His word through consistent prayer and time with Him.
More changes….. Moves to unknown territory, to an unknown land, to an unknown people, to different, where we had to depend on each other and on Him alone. He was faithful to us, He showed us the way and provided for us a path to travel.
So with all these changes and the changes that I’m sure are yet to come, one thing that I can be certain of is this…………….

So rest in this promise, He will never leave you hanging, if you will hold on!
Thank You Lord for being the one constant in my life. Amen!
