"The world you inhabit is a place of constant changes...even the body you inhabit is changing relentlessly...however, I am the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8 (237)
Change is so dichotomous, sometimes comforting, sometimes distressing. I was quite captured with the myriad of changes that were involved in raising children. First of all, I was amazed how my own body changed to accommodate the growing new life within me, during pregnancy. Then, observing the necessary changes for normal development from infancy to childhood totally captured us, keeping us quite entertained! But to successfully raise a human from childhood to adulthood requires the ability to be flexible, yet firm, in navigating their own unprecedented changes...of mind, clothes, friends, hair, moods, whatever!
Change impacts our lives continually. Sometimes change is amazing, sometimes it is assaulting. Certainly the changes that come with the typical aging process can be quite distressing, even demoralizing.
I am comforted in knowing that Jesus is the "rock-solid foundation" that never changes. He's the constant, reliable anchor that gives reassurance no matter what has happened, is happening or will happen.
