Through the years, harmonious and happy living has been my desire for me and my family. With diligence and a sense of purpose, I try to maintain a certain balance. My home is a peaceful oasis in a chaotic world--most of the time. Life goes smoothly--most of the time. The everyday routine seems much the same--most of the time. Until the expected happens: auto accidents, illnesses, financial upsets, death. Life is interrupted; peace is disrupted.
Changes occur. It might be as simple and seamless as a new supervisor at work, or as profound and life-changng as the death of a loved one. A child grows up and moves away from home. One of my daughters is about to move 4500 miles away from here; I didn't see it coming. I'm still reeling from that seismic change.
Oh, why can't life stay just as we like it, all the time? We long for a type of heaven on earth.
Wise Solomon told us quite eloquently that "to every thing there is a season". (see Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
Then, besides change, what can we depend on?
We can depend on Jesus. He does not change. His plans for me have not changed. My soul's destiny has not changed. My circumstances and my perspective might change. But, Jesus Christ is unchangeable. That essential reality remains constant.
He is for all Eternity. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 1:8)
God is the only unchanging variable in our lives. I praise God that no matter what changes may come in my life, I can put my trust in Him.
