This world is constantly changing, isn't it? Countries change their borders and their names, kingdoms, rulers, and dynasties rise and fall. Cities, houses, farms and businesses are built and then not many years later they are torn down and new ones are built in their place.
Our old stone house is showing some wear. She was built in 1882, and has survived much longer than most of the other houses built during that time in our area. Back in the 1990s someone remodeled the interior, but then no one lived in it for awhile and now look at it. Things change.
There are lots of old fences around our place, and what once held pigs in is now a nice backdrop for my red tulips. Everything is always changing in life. We may think we are all settled in one place, and then circumstances change and we have to move. Life events cause those we love most to change as well. I know my husband is not the same man he was when were first dating 20 years ago, and I know for sure I'm not the same girl.
The older I get the more I realize that comfort and security can never come from our circumstances- not from the people in our family, and not from a house or money.
The only One who can give us comfort and security is God, because
HE NEVER CHANGES!
I the LORD do not change.
Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.
Lord, you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting
you are God.
I am so glad that God doesn't change- it is so comforting to know that the same God who helped us back then, is the same God who will help us in the uncertain future. He is good!
