It's an idea that I find exciting and fun. But in reality it makes me crazy. And this week I've been a maniac!
The past decade-and-a-half has been nothing but change. Everything uprooted, turned on its head, shifting, changing...
But isn't that just life?
Life isn't static. It's constantly moving forward and we move forward with it, whether we want to or not. (Tweet That) It's the nature of life. No one can ever just stay where they are. Even couch potatoes and bums grow old and change - get grey hair and wrinkles.
And as I folded laundry yesterday recounting to God the list of changes in my life... Whining. Griping. Complaining...
God reminded me that
"Every good gift and perfect gift [house, kids, husband, friends...yes, I could go on and on] is from above, and comes down from the Father of Lights with whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning."
No shadow of turning. He doesn't change. He doesn't even appear to change.
He is constant.
When everything else in life changes, breaks, goes wrong, grows...grows old - He stays the same. (Tweet That)
And suddenly I realized how very foolish I had been.
Depending on things, kids, husband, people - stuff around me to give me the security that only God can give. Sure, in my mind I knew that it is foolish to do so - probably even blogged about it a time or two - but unknowingly I was hoping that all those things around me that I love and that love me would give me a sense of security and stability.
They failed me.
But God never has - He never will. (Tweet That)
And suddenly I found myself singing:
I need Thee every hour
Most gracious Lord
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O bless me now my Savior
I come to Thee.
And now it's party time!!!
