{ " Change. " }

I don't know if I have written on this topic before, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately.
That is the topic of


A lot of things change. Places change, people change, circumstances change, and we change. People walk in, and out of our lives. Our heartaches change, and our joys change. Our dreams change, even our hearts change.
Pretty much everything changes... Everything except one person.


No matter how much things around us change, He never will.
My life has changed a lot throughout the past few years. If you had asked me in 2012 if my life would change as much as it has during the last two years I would have not even had a clue. If you had sat me down, and told me all of the changes that were going to take place in my life, I probably would have just looked at you like you were a little bit off your rocker. I may have even laughed. (I like to laugh, you know.) Even as I look back now, I can't believe how much things have changed. I can't believe how much I have changed. It kind of seems like nothing ever stays the same. Things can change for better, and for worse. Sometimes we don't like how things change, and sometimes we wish they would! I know there were a lot of things in my life that I wished would have happened differently, and that I wish I could have changed. I guess what I'm getting at is, even though everything might seem uncertain, and our circumstances might be constantly changing, we have a solid rock that we can stand on. God never ever changes. He never has, and never will. To quote one of my very favorite hymns:

"Yesterday, today, forever Jesus is the same, all may change but Jesus never! Glory to his name!"

I have taken great comfort in the fact that even though my life might be turned upside down, my Lord is always going to be the same. I can always run to Him with my heartaches, my joys, and my hopes. He is someone I can always count on, because He will never change.

Isn't that such an encouragement in this every changing, ever turning world?
I think so.
