This line of thought lead to the changes I do like.
Like is entirely inadequate when it comes to the change of seasons. As one season slowly dies and the next emerges, I never cease to be amazed and delighted at God's creation.
Then there are those bittersweet changes in life such as watching these people grow up. Sad to see them growing up--so proud to see them growing up.
Then there are the huge changes we stumble through at best. I moved from the home our family grew up in, to living alone in Ruston, and then the bungalow here in Fort Worth. I have loved each of these homes in a different way--but the change was more difficult than I could ever express.
Living life means living with change. I do not know one single person whose life has remained totally stationery. Time marches on and with the march of time life changes. That is not all bad. I am thankful for most of the changes in my life. One thing is certain---God has been present during each and every change. With change, I have gained strength and wisdom, been stretched to new heights, and increased my knowledge of who God is. I am thankful for the experience of change, the growth through change, and the depth of assurance which has come with change. With time and experience, I have learned to look forward to change, accept change as inevitable, and embrace the new or different.
Most of all--I am thankful God never changes---He cannot change--He is God. What a blessing to know the one constant in life---GOD ALMIGHTY.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
